The countdown is on to the 11th edition of the Golf Digest Middle East Classic presented in association with King’s College Hospital London and AutoRoute, the culmination of our three tournament autumn series.
It’s not to late to enter the grand final at Emirates Golf Club next Tuesday where the winners of division A (0-10 handicaps), division B (11-24) and ladies competitions will earn Pro-Am starts at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and remodelled Omega Dubai Moonlight Classic respectively.
To get you in the mood for the October 16 decider, here’s s highlights reel from the second qualifying tournament at the Els Club, Dubai last week where Kevin Riley, Hisham Shammas and Stephanie Kemper all qualified for the 11th GDME Classic.
At AED 555, the entry fee for the GDME Classic is a sharp price for a round on the Majlis, rated No.1 in the most recent Golf Digest Middle East Top 10 courses ranking, in its own right. The bonus is a post Classic gala dinner and your chance to win once-in-a-lifetime European Tour and Ladies European Tour Pro-Am spots as well as other goodies from our sponsors.
