There will also be a Par 3 driving range competition and a miniature putting contest.
Commenting on the upcoming week-long Ramadan activities planned at the golf & country club, James Durkin, Golf Operations Manager at Yas Acres Golf & Country Club said: “I am sure that our weeklong Ramadan community event will entice both golfers and non-golfers alike to come and visit us for the first time. We are confident that once people are able to enjoy our amenities and see the high standards, we put into everything that we do that they will come back for more and see what else we have to offer.”
Durkin continued: “Both our member and visitor experience is second to none and during this year’s Ramadan our team will look to offer the very best culinary experience, leisure offering and golf and padel operations.”
Santos Montes, Group F&B Manager at Yas Links Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and Yas Acres Golf & Country Club was excited to try out some of his new recipes on visitors during the club’s ‘Community Week’ saying: “This will be a fantastic opportunity not only for me to try some new food and beverage initiatives but to also give back to our local community and Yas Acres residents. For those of us lucky enough to live in Abu Dhabi, we know how important Ramadan is. Particularly when it comes to food! We want to be able to offer fortifying dishes to help those fasting regain their strength, as well as sampling an array of new international flavours.”
So, make sure to bring the family and visit Yas Acres Golf & Country Club any day during ‘Community Week’ to experience the facilities first-hand.
