MUSCAT – Junior golfers from Oman were lucky enough to attend the MENA Tour Junior Star Golf Clinic at Ghala Valley Golf Club on the 20th October. It was an incredibly special clinic, with each junior paired with a pro from the MENA Tour for a personal tutoring session.
The Clinic included Tom Buchanan, a former Edinburgh & East of Scotland Alliance champion and Head Golf Professional at Al Ain Equestrian Shooting and Golf Club. Moroccan golfer, Amine Joudar, who has over 16 years of experience as a golfing pro in the Middle East and could offer crucial advice to the juniors. John Singleton, a British golfing hero who recently starred in the 2014 Open Championship at Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Hoylake. Milo Breitenwischer, the new Oman National Junior Golf Coach, who has won numerous competitions in his native country, Germany. Lee Corfield, a former winner of the MENA Golf Tour from England and Jay Townsend, the General Manager of Ghala Valley Golf Club and former Oman National Team Head Coach.
The MENA Tour clinic started with an introduction and then each junior was paired with their pro. The juniors were able to watch the pros in action and then practice their own shots, with the pros offering encouragement and advice on how to improve their game. General Manager, Jay Townsend commented, “ It was fantastic to see Joshua, Neeharika, Lavinia, Neerav and Noel all enjoying practicing and interacting with the pros. It is our aim at Ghala Valley Golf Club to encourage the future generation of golfers and what better way to achieve our goal with clinics like this. The clinic ended with a fun game as each group attempted to hit balls into a target bucket for points.
