Date of Birth: September 18, 1975
Turned Professional: 2000
Morocco’s top-ranked golfer Faycal Serghini was appointed brand ambassador of ‘golf in DUBAi’ in December 2014 as part of an ambitious Shaikh Maktoum Golf Foundation drive to stimulate growth of golf in the Arab world and entice new talent to the sport.
A familiar face on the professional golf circuit, Serghini has been carrying the baton of hope in his relentless pursuit of putting the region’s golf on the sporting map. His appointment was appropriate recognition for the tremendous contribution made by Moroccan golfers in establishing the footprint of the MENA Golf Tour since its inception in 2011.
A three-time runner-up on the Tour, the affable Moroccan knows a thing or two about what it takes to play at the highest level, having competed in the Hassan II Trophy and the Omega Dubai Desert Classic – both European Tour events -- a number of times since turning professional in 2000.
