Dubai Golf Junior Par 3 tournament results at Dubai Creek Golf Academy

The most recent Dubai Golf Junior Par 3 series took place on 21st February. This was the fifth event in a series of eight, which took place at the Dubai Creek 9 hole Academy Golf Course and was made up of a strong field of 55 budding junior golfers. 

The event was the fifth of an eight tournament series and is part of an initiative by the Dubai Golf Academy Professionals to encourage junior golfers to move from the driving range to the golf course. Between the two Dubai Golf Academies at Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek and Yacht Club, over 500 juniors participate in regular weekly lessons as part of the Dubai Golf Junior Development Programme sponsored by Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts and Wild Wadi Waterpark.

Organising Golf Professional Kenny Monaghan commented, "It was great to see so many children participate again today here at Dubai Creek. Every tournament we can see an improvement in skill, etiquette and rules from all the children. We have had some great scores again today and it was good to see so many children and parents enjoying themselves in a competition environment. Special congratulations have to go to Eshna after all the hard work she puts into practicing and getting better! "

Juniors in each of the five programme levels (Black, Purple, Blue, Yellow and White) competed against one another and each level was highly contested.  Winners received lovely trophies, vouchers for Wild Wadi Waterpark and various other golf accessories. Each score was awarded with some valuable order of merit points which will be added together for all the events throughout the year.

Eshna Bhargava won the overall tournament with a 1 under par score of 26, this moved her into 10th place on the Order of Merit for this season.  Fardeen Meeran still leads the way on 350 points with Joshua Hill in 2nd place on 325 points.

The buzz between the competitors was electric and you could clearly sense the nervous tension before tee off. The nerves soon settled as the juniors started to focus on the task at hand. Many of the parents acted as caddies and did a great a job in supporting their kids and the event.  Event five was a huge success and we look forward to the next event which takes place at Emirates Golf Club on April 4th.
