The UAE National Golf Team will prepare for September’s Eisenhower Trophy in Mexico by training at the Jumeirah Golf Estates European Tour Performance Institute (ETPI).

A total of 125 governing bodies will send their national squads to the world amateur team championship and the UAE golfers will spend the next four months working on their game with a bespoke training programme.

Teaching and practice facilities at Jumeirah Golf Estates’ purpose-built ETPI facility include elite performance player assessments, biomechanics training, full body screenings, balance lab tests, physiotherapy screenings and 3D swing data analysis.

Shaikh Fahim Bin Sultan Al Qasimi, chairman of the Emirates Golf Federation, said: “This is the beginning of our team’s preparations for the Eisenhower Trophy – and we want get as much out of the squad of players as possible prior to the event so it’s great that we’re able to take advantage of the amazing facilities they’ve got here at the ETPI.”

Mark Gregson-Walters, director of instruction at European Tour Performance Institute at Jumeirah Golf Estates, added: “We’re excited to be a part of the Emirates Golf Federation initiative and to work alongside Greg Holmes [UAE national first team coach] and David Condon [UAE national team performance coach] giving them access to one of the best training facilities in the region here at ETPI.

“It’s brilliant that Jumeirah Golf Estates has become the home of the UAE National Golf Team. Our team is looking forward to sharing our expertise throughout the training programme, ahead of the Eisenhower Trophy in September.

“We will work with the Emirates Golf Federation in preparing a pathway to develop the team, with constant monitoring to ensure constant progress in the lead up to the event.”
