Peter Cowen Academy has a fan­tas­tic lessons pack­age for you to learn the game Email: ea­cademy@dubaigolf.com

The tem­per­a­ture might be ris­ing but new­bies can pick up the game and de­velop their skills this sum­mer at The Peter Cowen Academy at Emi­rates Golf Club.

Their new one-week 345 golf­ing pack­age is suit­able for begin­ners who want to learn the ba­sics and en­hance their knowl­edge in a sport that is widely played in the UAE.

Priced at Dh345 per per­son, the pro­gramme is di­vided into three 45-minute ses­sions in­clu­sive of an in­tro­duc­tion, short game, long game, putting and on-course play. Each class will cover the fun­da­men­tals of the game as well as other ar­eas like golf swing me­chan­ics, body mo­tion, ball strik­ing and the art of the short game.

On top of that, you don’t need to pur­chase your own clubs with all guests re­ceiv­ing com­pli­men­tary equip­ment hire and prac­tice balls to use over the week.

The pack­age was only launched this year but Stephen Deane, head golf pro­fes­sional at Emi­rates Golf Club, says there’s al­ready been strong in­ter­est so far.

“The pack­age is brand new, how­ever we have re­ceived a lot of in­ter­est from res­i­dents look­ing to get into the game of golf,” he said. “Our pre­vi­ously launched “Learn Golf in a Week pack­age” was ex­tremely suc­cess­ful and gained tremen­dous at­trac­tion at the club.”

Run­ning un­til Au­gust 31, Deane be­lieves there’s many pos­i­tives on why peo­ple should take ad­van­tage of this of­fer.

“The pack­age pro­vides a great in­tro­duc­tion to the game of golf, it en­ables par­tic­i­pants to get an in­tro­duc­tion to the game,” he said.

“The pack­age of­fers good value for money with all equip­ment pro­vided, al­low­ing as­pir­ing golfers to get a taste of the game. Many of the par­tic­i­pants from the Learn Golf in a Week pack­age have gone on to take fur­ther lessons and progress to play­ing on ini­tially the Par 3 course and then 18 hole golf cour­ses.

“Spread across the course of a week, golf en­thu­si­asts will re­ceive three 45-minute ses­sions, led by qual­i­fied pro­fes­sion­als at the Peter Cowen Academy.

“With a max­i­mum group size of 10, the guests are en­sured a sup­port­ive and qual­ity train­ing pro­gramme. As the lessons are con­ducted in a group set­ting, it is a great thing to do with friends in a friendly at­mos­phere.”
