The Golf in Dubai Championship presented by DP World will be played in the penultimate week of the season and form a December Dubai double header preceding the final Rolex Series event of the year, the DP World Tour Championship.
The tournament builds on the long-term relationship DP World has with the European Tour which began over a decade ago and underlines its commitment in growing the game of golf in the region.
Daniel Van Otterdijk, Chief Communications Officer, DP World said: “As a long-term partner of the European Tour, DP World is proud to support the Golf in Dubai Championship.
“Over the past 12 years our partnership has not only contributed to the success and prosperity of Dubai’s economy by driving inbound tourism, but it has also helped to grow the game in the UAE by opening it up to new audiences.
“The new tournament is another great example of Dubai’s ability to host world class events and underscores its position as a leading hub for both trade and sport. We look forward to welcoming the European Tour and its players to the emirate for two back-to-back tournaments, which will help conclude another exciting Race to Dubai.”
