We had the pleasure of getting to know a little more about Yasmian Ghanem, the first female Qatari golfer. It all started with a family vacation to Egypt when Yasmian was 11 years old, and her passion to play golf has been ignited since then.
She has been part of the Qatar National Team for 10 years now, has been competing in championships ever since. She aspires to be a role model to spread the culture of sports and golf for the next generation, where they can get more involved and feel more empowered.
Yasmian’s inspiration and role model is the one and only Tiger Woods, as he has maintained the #1 ranking worldwide for several years. Through Yasmian’s passion and determination, she plans to lead an academy solely for golf to promote the sport throughout the region. With Commercial Bank and the Qatar Golf Association, Yasmian has been touring around schools in Qatar to share tips about playing golf and encourage children to play the sport.
We wish Yasmian the very bust with her career and successes! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to try out golf, it’s a great way to try out something new and challenge yourself where you may discover a new talent and hobby!
