What is the Omega Dubai Moonlight Classic?

  • Founded in 2006, it is the world’s first women’s full Ladies European Tour tournament ever to be played in the Middle East.

  • In 2019, the tournament became the only professional day-night golf tournament to be played under floodlights with a picturesque backdrop of the Dubai Marina.

  • The tournament hosts the 56 leading players on the circuit, battling for a portion of the US$285,000 (Dh1.05 million) purse.

  • The players are considered to be the best in the world and past champions include Nuria Iturrioz (2019), Annika Sorenstam (2006, 07), Anja Monke (2008), In Kyung Kim (2009), Iben Tinning (2010) and Alexis Thompson (2011), Shanshan Feng (2012, 14, 15, 16), Pornanong Phatlum (2013) and Angel Yin (2017).

  • The tournament is extensively covered by media and news outlets and is broadcast on live TV to millions of households.

  • The UAE Women’s team will be playing in the Pro-Am event held prior to the official kickstart of the Omega Moonlight Classic alongside the professional players. The women’s team has been growing in numbers and have recently won a couple of championships in the region. Because Golf has long been a male dominated sport, they however have faced the challenge of finding the right outfits that respect and reflect the UAE’s culture and tradition.
