Even though many would not expect to find golf courses in the Middle East, it is a particularly hard secret to keep that there are many out there! Especially when the "Race to Dubai" which started in 2009 really put the Middle East on the map in terms of Golf.

The Race to Dubai celebrates both the diversity and the shared passion for golf across the globe. From the curtain-raising South African Open Championship in November across all five continents through to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, The 2014 European Tour International Schedule presents 12 months of enthralling tournament action featuring 48 tournaments in 26 countries worldwide.
The DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, is once again the culmination of the four-tournament Final Series which, as in 2013, will also feature the BMW Masters and the WGC-HSBC Champions in China and the Turkish Airlines Open in Antalya.
Henrik Stenson won The 2013 Race to Dubai and became the first man to win The European Tour's Race to Dubai and FedEx Cup on the US PGA Tour in the same year. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy (2012), England's Luke Donald (2011), Germany’s Martin Kaymer (2010) and England's Lee Westwood (2009) have previously won The Race to Dubai.
