Chinese super league football Club Dalian Professional FC recently visited the stunning Education City Golf Club (ECGC), part of the tour organised by Qatar Foundation in partnership with Wanda Group.
The ECGC team introduced the players to golf, mixing golf and football with activities like Footgolf, played using the feet and footballs, with large holes with flags; putting lessons on the putting green; and SNAG golf, using special clubs and larger balls as big as tennis balls.
Later in the week, players will continue to their golf journey on the driving range and the nine-hole par 3 course, that sits alongside the 18 whole championship course and special floodlit six-hole (full size hole) course.
ECGC will be hosting the 2020 European Tour of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters event, its 23rd edition.
Dalian Professional FC is in Qatar as part of Wanda’s FIFA Flag Bearers Programme at the FIFA Club World Cup Qatar 2019™, an ongoing initiative aimed at inspiring the next generation of football talent in China and all over the world.
There are 22 Dalian Professional FC youth players, aged 11 to 14, on tour along with five coaches and team staff.
