Peter Cowen Academy for Emirates Golf Club

Peter Cowen, one of Europe’s leading teaching professional, has announced plans for a new Peter Cowen Golf Academy at the prestigious Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, which he will use as his winter teaching academy.

In Dubai for the Desert Classic Peter said, “Dubai is my all-time favourite golf destination and I am delighted to announce my association with the Emirates Golf Club which is undoubtedly one of the finest golf facilities in the world.

“Given the poor weather conditions in the UK throughout the winter months it was important for me to identify a winter base where I could spend quality time with the players before the start of the new season. The facilities at Emirates Golf Club and the climate in Dubai between November – March are the perfect combination for my winter teaching academy.”

Peter does not intend to dedicate all of his time in Dubai working with his Tour players, however, and commented on his plans to work closely with the Club, its members and everyone involved with golf in Dubai: “I want to build a relationship with the members of Emirates Golf Club and with those local businesses who use golf as a means of corporate entertainment. I am also very keen to work with the UGA and Dubai Golf to promote golf in Dubai.”

Throughout the winter months Peter’s management company, Peter Cowen Golf, will also be organizing dedicated golf holidays to Dubai that will include intensive tuition with Peter and his team of academy teaching professionals.
