Dubai Golf and world-renowned golf instructor Peter Cowen are excited to announce the launch of the Peter Cowen Golf Academy. The new institution will enhance the offering at the Middle East’s most prestigious golf course.  Emirates Golf Club have had an association with Peter for over a decade and the agreement is being enhanced and extended to Dubai Creek to further enhance the teaching opportunities available.

“I want to get more Emiratis and UAE citizens playing and enjoying the game of golf, and hopefully then we can get more players from this region becoming professional golfers,” saidPeter Cowen, the world’s leading golf instructor.

The Peter Cowen Golf Academy Dubai marks the first international location of the Academy, progressing from the original facility in Rotherham, UK. Golf professionals at the academies at both Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club will be teaching the ‘Peter Cowen method’ and passing on signature, world-leading Peter Cowen drills.

Peter’s stable of players includes a wealth of talent notably the 2016 Open Championship and 2007 Dubai Desert Classic champion Henrik Stenson as well as a host of stars from the world of golf including former DP World Champion Matthew Fitzpatrick and former world number one, Lee Westwood.

The partnership between Emirates Golf Club, host of the annual Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Ladies Classic (6th to 9th December, 2017) tournaments and Peter Cowen will bring Peter’s tour-proven coaching philosophies and methods to the members and guests of Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.

Peter Cowensays, “I have been coming to Dubai and Emirates Golf Club for a number of years now and I am very proud of my association with the club. The launch of the Peter Cowen Golf Academy Dubai will be a place for all to come to get the most out of their golf game, whether they are beginners or elite players. The facilities at Emirates Golf Club are unparalleled to anywhere in the world, and the players who I work with around the time of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic love to use the club and the facilities. It is fantastic that the relationship has now been extended to Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and I look forward to continuing my relationship with Dubai Golf for many years to come”.

“We have enjoyed a successful association with Peter Cowen under the Dubai Golf Academy at Emirates Golf Club brand, and the announcement of this partnership can be seen as a progression of our successful association. The Peter Cowen Golf Academy Dubai will represent the latest in teaching philosophies that will enhance Dubai Golf’s member and guest experiences at both Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club” said Christopher May, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Golf

 “Dubai Golf has always invested in its coaching but the new Peter Cowen Golf Academy will take this to the next level and make the club a destination for world-class lessons and instruction. Peter’s reputation as the world’s leading golf coach will greatly benefit the club, its members and its guests. Players who adopt his method see an instant improvement in their game and the knowledge Peter will pass to the Professionals here will ensure their skills are cutting edge and world class,” Stephen Deane, Emirates Golf Club Head Golf Professional.

The Dubai Golf Academy at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club will also fall under the Peter Cowen Academy Dubai umbrella and adopt the same teaching principles to ensure students who learn their golf with Dubai Golf are receiving the same world class instruction at Emirates Golf Club and at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
