DP World Tour Championship Dubai 2019

Some of the most tense moments of the European Tour Race to Dubai will be felt at the DP World Tour Championship at the Jumeirah Golf Estates between Nov 21-24. The finale will be played at the Earth Course, which opened ten years ago around the same time to host the first tournament and as a replacement for the Volvo Masters.

After 47 events, in 31 different countries, there can only be one Race to Dubai Champion. 
The top race leaders are Bernd Wiesberger, Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Shane Lowry and Matthew FitzpatrickThis year’s purse is €8,000,000, and if Fleetwood makes it to the top, it will mark his second Race to Dubai win. 

Jumeirah Golf Estates' Earth course opened in November 2009 coincident with staging the European Tour's first Dubai World Championship. Earth and its companion layout, Fire, are the first Greg Norman designs in the Gulf.

Should you want to tee off else where:

If you’re planning to fly in to Dubai for the tournament, it is worth teeing off at the Address MontgomerieThis is a big, expansive and open layout, a golfing oasis bounded throughout by large villas, and dotted with occasional palms and small trees within the course. The luxury residences should not come into play, they are thankfully set well back from the prodigious roller-coaster earth mounding that defines the often generously wide fairways.

Emirates Golf Course (Majlis Course)As the long-time standard bearer of golf in the Middle East, the magnificent Majlis course is undoubtedly a course that sits comfortably among the world's elite.

If this is your first time to Dubai, don’t miss the city’s famed mall and panoramic views from the Burj Khalifa skyscraper. Visit the souk to check out Dubai’s lust for gold and definitely make a trip to Ferrari World if you’re bringing your kids along.
