Dubai is in race with Singapore to host 2023 world amateur golf. The International Golf Federation (IGF) is scheduled to vote on the host at its biennial meeting, to be held virtually, during the course of this week.
Dubai has put forward Jumeirah Golf Estates for 2023 venue with Singapore centering its bid on the world famous Sentosa Golf Club.
Singapore was due to host the 2020 event this month after it was moved from Hong Kong due to the anti-government unrest in the city last year. However, the competition was then called off due to the coronavirus pandemic with the biennial meeting, which was due to be held alongside, also moving online as a result.
Delegates at the meeting will also get an update on the 2022 Championships, which are planned for Le Golf National near Paris, the same course that staged the Ryder Cup in 2018.
