A young crop of women golfers will be waiting to show their mettle as Dubai prepares to host the Omega Dubai Moonlight Classic at the Emirates Golf Club (EGC). The event is scheduled to be held on the famed Faldo Course at Emirates Golf Club from November 4-6.
The event will see three gritty young golfers - Amy Boulden, Diksha Dagar and Julia Engström - part of a field of 56 players competing for the $285,000 (Dhs 1.04 million) prize fund with five players from the confirmed field in the top-50 and one player in the top 10.
The tournament will mark the return of sporting events to Dubai and take place under the appropriately named theme ‘Time to Shine’.
The three-day competition is the latest event aimed at inspiring the next generation of young girls to set out in pursuit of their dreams and to overcome perceived barriers.
Golfing superstars are not usually associated with acts of courage and determination, but this year’s tournament will feature a line-up of golfers who have played an extraordinary role in terms of setting a sporting example, particularly when it comes to female empowerment.
