Golf enthusiasts with a property investment in Dubai might be interested in the following news.
The Els Club has announced its second Major Series, which will begin on September 26th and is open exclusively to members.
Winner of last year's event Ronan O'Reilly said it was a thrill to be named the champion of the event.
"The Major Series is keenly contested by every member of the club - and I will be practicing hard over the coming weeks in an attempt to defend my title," he stated.
Whoever is successful in the upcoming event will get the opportunity to meet Ernie Els during the Dubai Desert Classic festivities.
Mr O'Reilly asserted it was a wonderful experience to meet the professional golfer and to be congratulated by him.
Some 72 members are expected to take part in each contest.
According to Mr Els, playing on the golf course – which stretches for 7,538 yards - gives the feeling of practicing the sport in the desert.
