Elite golfing action at Omega Dubai Desert Classic

The Omega Dubai Desert Classic is a PGA European Tour sanctioned event featuring a $2.5 million prize pool. It is held early every year at the Emirates Golf Club’s Majlis Course, and it is promoted and organised by the umbrella organisation Golf in Dubai.

The Omega Dubai Desert Classic attracts some of the biggest names in golf. Tiger Woods has featured at the event six times since 2001 and has won it twice.

However, the most successful golfer at this event has been Ernie Els who has played in 12 different years and has won the competition three times. The youngest player to walk away with the trophy was Northern Ireland golfer Rory McIlroy who was just 19 years old when he won in 2009.
