The eagerly awaited Hero Dubai Desert Classic, the region’s most cherished golf tournament, will grace the Emirates Golf Club once again, taking place from January 18 to 21, 2024. This annual extravaganza has been synonymous with top-tier golf, exquisite cuisine, and exceptional entertainment since its inauguration in 1989.

Last year marked a significant milestone when the tournament joined the prestigious Rolex Series, an elite category within the DP World Tour. This move bolstered its international reputation.

The upcoming Hero Dubai Desert Classic promises even more excitement, with world number one and three-time champion Rory McIlroy set to compete alongside other elite golfers. They’ll vie for the prestigious Rolex Series prize fund of $9 million on the captivating Majlis course.

In July, the tournament achieved GEO Certified Tournament status, becoming the first golf event in the Middle East and the first within the DP World Tour Rolex Series to do so. This recognition, granted by the GEO Foundation for Sustainable Golf, underscores the event’s commitment to environmental and social sustainability.

Simon Corkill, executive tournament director, expressed their dedication to addressing vital environmental and social issues to deliver positive impacts.
