Your chance to play a round of golf with Rory McIlroy

Golfers are either going to find this the ultimate thrill, or the most nerve-wracking experience ever.

The annual Luckiest Ball on Earth competition is back for another year, and is offering Dubai’s big golfers the chance to play with some of the leading golf pros on the international circuit later this year.

23 qualifying events will be taking place at 21 different golf clubs around the region, with winners of each event progressing on to the grand final event, which is being hosted at Jumeirah Golf Estates’ Fire Course on Monday October 21.

Open to both male and female players, with dedicated tournaments for each, the two winners will join the junior winner (the participants for the junior final have already been confirmed), and hit the course at the DP World Tour Championship’s Pro-Am tournament when the season-ending championship comes to Dubai’s Jumeirah Golf Estates in November.

Taking place before the professional tournament, the Pro-Am will take place on what’s widely considered to be the most challenging golf course in the emirate – the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates. Pro players will include the likes of Major winners Danny Willett, 2018 Race to Dubai champion Francesco Molinari and three-time Race to Dubai winner Rory McIlroy.
