JUNIOR GOLF PROGRAM

WELCOME TO THE GOLF DXB FAMILY

Before you enrol, let us tell you a little more about our award winning program.

Golf DXB’s Tee It Up Scheme gives children from across Dubai a fun introduction to golf. From here children can become a part of our unique tiered ability program which allows young golfers to learn, develop and compete in an environment suited to their level. In the last five years we have seen children quickly progress from first swings to the Golf DXB Elite Performance Group. To find out more about each step of your child’s golfing journey with Golf DXB please click on the red boxes in the diagram below.

International Golf Junior Passport System

After you have been introduced to us, through the Tee It Up Scheme, EGF National Development Program or otherwise, your child will flow into the International Golf Junior Passport (IGJP) System which helps guide children through their golfing journey with us. Each term is divided into three cycles with content relating to putting, short game and long game. In each cycle there is information relating to understanding, technique and a challenge to be completed. In the last week of each cycle children will go to the short golf course to put into practice their skills and will receive guidance of etiquette. Through a combination of judgments by the coach made during sessions, scores in tournaments, short golf course and results from our end of term test, a decision will be made as to which level students should be placed in next term. Please click on the different pathways to find out more about specific levels of the IGJP system and respective UAE Inter school Golf League tournament formats.
