In line with their long-held tradition, promoters and organisers of the euro 500,000 tournament have announced that entry to the season-ending Ladies European Tour (LET) event would be free for all fans during the tournament week.

The tournament will again have a Saturday finish, but the dates for the Challenge Match and the pro-am have been changed due to the travel schedule of some of the leading players. The Challenge Match, featuring six marquee players, will now be played on December 7, starting at 6pm, while the pro- am, the traditional curtain-raiser to event, will be held on December 6.

“We would like to encourage more and more golf fans to come to the Emirates Golf Club and cheer the professional lady golfers who would be showcasing their svelte swing,” said Mohamed Juma Buamaim, vice-chairman and CEO of ‘Golf in Dubai,’ the promoters and organisers of the popular event.

“All the fans will have an easy access to the course, but entry to the clubhouse will be restricted to only pass holders,” Buamaim said. “The opening of the Nakheel metro station just across the road would make it much easier for them to commute to the venue without any traffic hassles. We have made elaborate arrangements to ensure fans enjoy the proceedings on all four days of the tournament. A giant TV screen has been installed in the ‘public village’ for them to catch up the live action,” he added.

Different food and beverage outlets, fun games for children and free golf clinics will further add to the carnival-like atmosphere at the village. Various distributors of golf equipment will also display their wares at the exhibition hall in the village.
