U.S embassy in Algiers helps install driving range

The Public Affairs Section at the U.S. Embassy in Algiers has partnered with the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Office of the Olympic Complex (OCO), and the Algerian Golf Federation, to install the first driving range in Algiers. A driving range is primarily used as a learning platform for players who want to learn principle techniques and improve their golf performance. The new driving range will be managed by Professional Golf Association expert Aamir Chaudhry, who will offer professional golf lessons and provide free workshops for children. This landmark accomplishment will be celebrated by all those who love the game of golf on May 4, 2012 at 10:00 at the Official Opening Ceremony held at the Terrain du Golf in Del Ibrahim.

  1. Like the old Algerian saying goes “ma khasse el-karde, ghir el-warde”

    • are you calling algerians monkeys :0
      it is basically a diplomatic gesture I am pretty sure none of these youth who were playing will grow up to be a golf star

      • I know it’s a diplomatic gesture and it’s a nice one. But what we need most are not driving ranges (and by the way, who can afford to buy a nice wood or a hybrid clubs in Algeria? The cheapest wood cost at least $250) but good quality schools and universities. That’s the meaning of the old saying.
