Save Dhs100 on tickets for landmark Dubai Desert Classic golf contest

It’s just two weeks before golfing hero Ernie Els and fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen tee off at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2019.

And, you can snap up tickets for just Dhs75 per day – that’s Dhs100 off the usual price.

The pair will line up alongside Ryder Cup stars Tommy Fleetwood, Henrik Stenson, Ian Poulter, Tyrrell Hatton and Thorbjorn Olesen as well as US Masters champion Sergio Garcia and world No. 5 Bryson DeChambeau.

One notable absence will be two-time winner Rory McIlroy who announced he was pulling out and playing in Hawaii instead.

Els is the tournament’s most successful player having lifted the Dallah trophy three times.

His course record of 61 still stands after powering him to victory in 1994.

The excitement is already building and tickets are selling fast as fans look to witness world class golf at the stunning Emirates Golf Club.

Be sure to head to the brand-new Barasti Deck built on the 15th hole for a bite to eat and beverages while watching the drama unfold.

This year marks the 30th edition of the content and day passes have been reduced from Dhs175, while a four-day Thursday to Sunday pass costs just Dhs250.

Or, if you fancy really dialing up the experience of the Major of the Middle East, you can enjoy ten hours of fully inclusive hospitality on the Clubhouse Terrace and chef Izu Ani’s stunning restaurant carine.

Packages are available from Dhs795 per person.

You could also win Dhs1million by taking on the Emirates NBD Million Dirham Putt – if you sink the 60ft monster you could be in luck.

The Tournament Village will also host fun activities for kids – big and small – including a children’s zone, golf simulator, mini golf and places to buy official merchandise.

The 30th edition of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic will be held at Emirates Golf Club from Thursday January 24 to Sunday January 27.

In 2017, golf legend Tiger Woods and One Direction’s Niall Horan took to the greens.
Tickets from Dhs75 (day pass), Dhs250 (four-day pass), Dhs795 (day hospitality). Jan 24-27. Emirates Golf Club, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.omegadubaidesertclassic.com.
