What is the one thing better than a round of golf with friends at one of the world’s top golfing destinations? A round of golf with friends in a full-field tournament, with refreshing drinks, competitions and prizes, of course!

As we head into the cooler months, Golf Digest Middle East is on hand with a tournament on one of Dubai’s premier golf courses.

Following the success of last year’s Oktoberfest event at The Els Club Dubai, we are back for Round 2 — bigger and better.

Join us on October 21 for a unique golfing experience as we celebrate Oktoberfest once more, and we will be on hand with a tasty brew or four to help liven the party mood and keep you going.

Proudly sponsored by African + Eastern, Adidas, Baker’s Kitchen, Birkenstock, MyGolf Dubai, Luxury Supercar Rentals, USEO and The Els Club, this is one golf gathering not to be missed.

The Els Club Dubai

For an incredible price of AED 570 + VAT, you will get driving range access from 11am ahead your place in the 18-hole individual stableford event. A pair of German brews plus two refill vouchers will greet each entrant in their golf cart along with an Oktoberfest lunch box. 

Once out on course, competitions such as longest drive and nearest the pin will be on offer to make things even more interesting as you compete for the top prize — a spot in the Dubai Desert Classic pro-am for the best gross score.

Following the action, there will be the prize presentation, a MyGolf simulator experience, along with Bavarian shots to keep the party going.

The winners of each division (Div. A 0-14 HCP, Div. B 15-24 HCP and Best Gross) will claim the coveted prizes and accolades, plus additional prizes on offer from our sponsors.

To be eligible for any of the prizes, an official EGF handicap/recognised handicap is required, and players under 21 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

So, dust off those clubs now the weather has cooled, call up the gang and sign up for Oktoberfest at The Els Club in Dubai. We’ll sort the brews and brats, you take care of the birdies and banter.

Introducing both apparel and footwear that features our recycled technical material: PRIMEBLUE & PRIMEGREEN PRIMEBLUE. This special capsule is just part of our commitment to continue to innovate in the area of sustainability until we reach our goal to use only recycled polyester in all of our products by 2024. The products featured include polos, layering pieces and shorts.
PRIMEBLUE is our high-performance recycled material that’s made in part with Parley Ocean Plastic. These plastics were intercepted from beaches, coastal communities and shorelines, preventing them from polluting our oceans. We took that plastic waste and turned it into a performance solution. Every day, the equivalent of 1,440 dump trucks of plastic waste enter our oceans, so this is one small way we can keep some waste out of our oceans and use it for purposes.
