Jumeirah Golf Estates, a European Tour Destination, has announced a new and exciting golf skills challenge which will take place at its European Tour Performance Institute (ETPI) throughout 2014, culminating in a Grand Final which will take place immediately preceding the 2014 DP World Tour Championship (20-23 November) – the season-ending finale of the Race to Dubai on The European Tour International Schedule.
The concept was developed with and is partnered by AGMC, the official BMW Group Importer for Dubai, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates, who continue their close association with Jumeirah Golf Estates and golf around Dubai.
The BMW Skills Challenge runs over a series eight qualifying rounds between April and October 2014, during which up to ten teams will pit their golf skills over a series of challenging golf skills tests including:
• Pitching skills
• Bunker skills
• Chipping skills
• Putting skills
• Driving accuracy and length skills
Each skill element will take place at the ETPI’s world-class practice facilities under the guidance of the Golf Professionals at the ETPI who will score each skill round.
Open to all golfers in the UAE, teams of four amateur golfers can enter in any of these qualifying rounds and the top team from each qualifying round goes through to a semi-final event to be held in early November. The top two teams from this stage proceed to the Grand Final which will take place on the Fire Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates.
