Al Hamra Golf Club, the leading golf club in the Northern Emirates, and the Ras Al Khaimah Club for People of Determination, announced that over AED 40,000 was raised to support people of determination in the Emirate through the region’s first 24-hour golf challenge. All entry fees and cash raised during the golf session and a proportion of F&B revenues generated on the day were donated to the Ras Al Khaimah Club for People of Determination.
With generous donations from Troon Golf, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Beach Resort , Al Marjan Island, The Ritz-Carlton Ras Al Khaimah, Al Hamra Beach and Pro-sports International, the golf challenge raised funds for the only club that is dedicated to increasing awareness, promoting the participation and inclusion of ‘people of determination’ in the community.
Set against the backdrop of the majestic Jebel Jais mountain in Ras Al Khaimah and forming the centrepiece of Al Hamra Village, Al Hamra Golf Club invited golfers of all levels – from seasoned professionals to fledgling enthusiasts – to play the game continuously for 24 hours and support people of determination. Members of the RAK Centre for People of Determination also got their chance to try golf for the very first time.
The initiative aimed to strengthen the relations of Ras Al Khaimah Club for People of Determination with organisations such as Al Hamra to raise funds to provide necessary physical, psychological, and intellectual care and attention to people of determination, enabling the young people to confidently integrate themselves in the society and engage in work across both the government and private sectors.
Al Hamra expressed appreciation for the initiative, which puts the interest of the people of determination as priority across Ras Al Khaimah.
Al Hamra Golf Club continues to host an exciting line-up of activities for all members of the community including introductory golfing lessons and activities to keep little ones entertained
