EGF is thrilled to work alongside with HSBC for the sixth year. HSBC is a globally recognized organization in banking with an event management sector that has a purpose to be where the growth is. HSBC is certainly on the right track with impressive golf events like the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and worldwide influence on junior golf programs.
EGF Secretary General, Khalid Mubarak Al Shamsi had this to say about the 2018 UAE Presidents Cup. “It is always great to work with HSBC and their knowledgeable events management staff. With the continued support from HSBC we are seeing this event grow year after year. The EGF has added a Par 3 Championship that will give our Foundation Squad the opportunity to showcase their skills, while brining the young and old generations together. Building the national golf community is a goal for both the EGF and HSBC, this event is proof that both are reaching that goal”.
With a strong field in all three divisions (Men’s, Ladies, and Juniors) of the main event and kids from the Foundation Squad trying to make UAE National Team the competition should be exciting.
The EGF encourages any and all spectators to visit Yas Link Abu Dhabi this weekend and support this fantastic event. You can see the results and follow the event updates on the EGF website and social media pages.
