The Golfing World and community is one that is star studded and attracts a large number of glitzy celebrities from around the world. The DP World Tour Championship, Dubai is one such event that is the final stage for the top 60 winners of the European Tour Race to Dubai series.
Formerly the circuit featured an Order of Merit series from which the top 60 went on to compete at the Volvo Masters. The DP World Championship is the replacement of the Volvo Masters since 2009. Sponsored by DP – a well known shipping Company which is based in Dubai, the Championship began in 2009 and has continued annually ever since.
The top 60 contenders battle it out over a period of 4 days for a combined jackpot of 11.5 million dollars at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. The event will not just be limited to a professional golf championship but also feature live music, food and beverage outlets, a kids zone and much more for the entire family to enjoy in a Championship Village atmosphere.
The Championship itself is a prestigious event featuring top performers in the golfing circuit. Scheduled from the 14th to the 17th of November, this Championship will offer great excitement not just for the contenders but all those who wish to visit and watch the performance as well as those who wish to experience the atmosphere of Championship life.
In 2012 Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland with a 2 stroke margin emerged championship with Justin Rose coming in as runner up. Previously Alvaro Quiros of Spain bore off the Championship crown in 2011 with Paul Lawrie emerging runner up. The 2013 edition has many surprise entrants and will no doubt be a Championship worth watching.
The DP World Tour Championship, Dubai is an ideal event for both the Golfing enthusiast and golfing amateur as well as all those who just wish to drink in the atmosphere.
