Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai will remain host of the DP World Tour Championship through 2031.
The DP World Tour, long known as the European Tour, announced a 10-year extension with the popular golf venue in the UAE, which boasts two Greg Norman-designed golf courses. The Earth Course has played host to the tour’s season-ender since 2009.
“We have always had extremely positive feedback from players and spectators about the facilities at Jumeirah Golf Estates and the 18th hole on the Earth Course, an intimidating par five surrounded by water, has become an iconic backdrop for our season finale,” said Guy Kinnings, Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Commercial Officer of the DP World Tour.
“This new long-term deal allows us to plan ahead and make sure that future editions of the DP World Tour Championship continue to set new standards in fan engagement. The Tour’s links to the Emirate of Dubai date back to 1989, and this announcement further solidifies a relationship that continues to place Dubai as a central destination in the sporting calendar each year.”
