Women attending the event at Jumeirah Golf Estates can look forward to a day of entertainment both on and off the golf course, including exclusive incentives and rewards throughout the day.

The DP World Tour Championship sees the highest ranked players on the European Tour’s Race to Dubai invited to contest the final event of the season, the $9 million DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, a Rolex Series event.

Tom Phillips, head of Middle East for the European Tour, said: “For more than a decade, spectators have been a key part in making the DP World Tour Championship a resounding success and with the return of fans this year, it is only apt to announce our first ever Ladies Day in the history of the tournament.

“Women’s golf is going from strength to strength and I’m confident that with the support of leading organizations and well-known individuals, it will provide a vibrant atmosphere off the course for the ladies while also inspiring them to play or watch the game.

“From competitions to golf clinics, as well as watching the world’s best golfers in action, ladies will have plenty to look forward to in what promises to be an unforgettable day out.”

There will also be a special ladies’ golf clinic run by Keke Strobach, a female teaching professional at the Peter Cowen Academy Dubai.

Running twice a day, at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday, the clinics will provide an opportunity for women at every level to learn the basics of the game with their efforts being rewarded with prizes. Ladies Day will also have a best dressed as judged by Neon Star competition.

The Race to Dubai is the season-long competition to crown the European Tour’s No. 1 player, with a list of champions since 2009 that includes multiple winners Rory McIlroy, Henrik Stenson, and Lee Westwood.

Formerly known as the Order of Merit, points are accumulated based on a tournament points system with the winner awarded the prestigious Race to Dubai trophy at the conclusion of the DP World Tour Championship.
