World Golf Finals A Chance For Turkey To Show Its Worth To The World

UNCERTAIN FUTURE: In Abu Dhabi, John McAuley reported that Mena Golf Tour Chair Mohamed Juma Buamaim said he wants the tournament to have a "minimum of 10" events in the future, although admits that the recent unrest in the region "has affected plans for expansion." The Mena Tour, now in its second season, is taking place this week in Suadi Arabia where the Dirab Golf and Country Club is hosting the Dirab Golf Championship. The event forms one of six on this year's circuit, an increase of two events from the inaugural tournament last year. Organizers agree "sustaining the tour's early success is dependent on the initiative," funded by the Sheikh Maktoum Golf Federation, extending throughout the Middle East and North Africa. Developed golf nations such as Morocco and Egypt would be "obvious choices to host future tournaments." The uncertainty precipitated by the Arab Spring has "understandably stunted the Mena Tour's growth" (THE NATIONAL, 10/8).
