Dubai -- The Shaikh Maktoum Golf Foundation is committed to continually identifying and nurturing the talented youth in the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) region with the aim of producing a future generation of champions.

With a specific focus on the region, the foundation will create new windows of opportunities for all emerging MENA national professionals and amateurs which will not only hone their golfing skills, but will also enhance the overall development of golf in the region.

Named after His Highness Shaikh Maktoum bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the late Ruler of Dubai, the foundation seeks to provide MENA talent with an environment in which they can grow, express themselves both personally and professionally and realise their dream of representing the country one day.

The foundation also intends to provide scholarships to emerging players from within the MENA golfing ranks to help hone their skills and build a strong pool of players which is paramount to producing a future generation of champions.

The overriding theme of the foundation is to drive the game to a new level in the MENA region.
