Emirates Helps Future Golfing Stars Shine

Emirates has helped kick start the future careers of some budding golfing pros on the eve of the 2013 Emirates Australian Open in Sydney.

Leading international players Rory McIlroy and Aaron Baddeley ran the Emirates Junior Golf Clinic, teaching 300 children from interstate and regional areas as well as Sydney, to hit a golf ball like a pro.

“It’s a pleasure to be back once again at Royal Sydney, the perfect setting to host one of the most prestigious golfing tournaments on the sporting calendar,” said Barry Brown, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President, Commercial Operations East.

“As a partner of the event since 2009, we are dedicated to the game of golf in Australia and are delighted to host not only adult golfing fans but children as well, with 300 children attending the Emirates Junior Golf Clinic today with Rory. Through the Emirates Australian Open and our many other commitments to the community, we’re able showcase the Emirates brand to golf lovers not only in Sydney, but around the country,” added Mr Brown.

Emirates’ hospitality marquee located alongside the 18th hole, affords spectacular views of both the tee and green and has been transformed to simulate the airline’s home and hub of Dubai, which was announced on Wednesday as the Host City for World Expo 2020.
