During the COVID-19 lockdown we thought it would be a great time to make a video series with local golf professionals in the United Arab Emirates on their experiences over the years. The series is called ‘Armchair Stories’. 

In the first episode of our Live Zoom video cast, Scott Grayston gets to know about the five golf teaching professionals experience in the UAE, what brought them over here and what’s changed over the years.


  • Scott Grayston (presenter – Worldwide Golf)
  • Jamie McConnell (Claude Harmon Performance Academy Dubai)
  • Martin Robinson (Address, Montgomerie)
  • Alastair Brown (Peter Cowen Academy, Dubai)
  • Stephen Deane (Peter Cowen Academy, Dubai)
  • Fraser Mclaughlan (Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting and Golf Club)

We hope you enjoy this first episode, the next two will be released over the coming weeks.
