The Challenge Tour returns for the second year in Dubai, and is organised for a period of four days. The European Challenge Tour has experienced 26 successful years. This year, the winner will walk away with 350,000 Euros in prizes.
This Golf tournament will feature 45 of the best players in the Challenge Tour, with the top 15 players after the Dubai Grand Final gaining their European Tour cards and playing privileges for the following season on the full European Tour. The Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final is accommodated by Al Badia Golf Club, and is supported by the Dubai Sports Council, the Emirates Golf Federation and the Arab Golf Federation. This year the prestigious R&A Rules School will be coming to Dubai as part of this Grand Final.
The tournament marks the second year of a three-year association between the European Challenge Tour and Al Badia Golf Club after India’s Shiv Kapur gained a four-stroke victory over Scotland’s Jamie McLeary and Portugal’s Jose-Filipe Lima in last year’s impressive event.
“One of our key initiatives for the 2014 staging was to work on a strategy to attract more of the UAE community to the event, to share in the great experience of the Challenge Tour Grand Final,” said James Shippey, Golf Club Manager, Al Badia Golf Club. “We felt that the tournament finishing on a Saturday would be a great thing as this falls over the UAE weekend and will give people the opportunity to attend the tournament without having to take a day off work. This is coupled with a focus on getting golf into the community through offering free golf lessons every day, and providing complimentary food and beverage to all attending the event. We look forward to welcoming many new and familiar faces to the Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final.”
Current Challenge Tour Rankings leader Moritz Lampert, a three-time winner this season who has bagged the automatic promotion to The European Tour, has confirmed participation in the 2014 Dubai Festival City Challenge Tour Grand Final hosted by Al Badia Golf Club.
Al Badia Golf Club by InterContinental Dubai Festival City, is an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones II. The Golf Club features an award winning clubhouse, four exclusive restaurants, event spaces and a luxurious spa.
