Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup Turns 22!
(23 November 2014)


What started in 1993 as a way of bringing together representatives of the duty free industry to Dubai for a few days of friendly competition, has turned out to be one of the most successful and popular golfing events on the duty free calendar and on November 26 and 27, the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup tournament, will take place at The Address Montgomerie Dubai and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club respectively.

Over the past 22 years, the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup has consistently attracted top executives from the duty free industry worldwide, with players coming from Great Britain, Germany, France, Ireland, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Netherlands, the Philippines as well as from regional duty free operations in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Qatar and Bahrain.

Commenting on the forthcoming tournament, Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice-Chairman of Dubai Duty Free, said: “The 22nd running of this tournament represents another milestone for Dubai Duty Free and we are looking forward to welcoming over 125 players this year. The players enjoy the atmosphere of friendly competition, and the social interaction makes it a good meeting place for those involved in the duty fee industry.”

The past champions of the DDF Golf World Cup include Steve Flanagan (1993/1996), Raimund Legnar (1994), Brendan O’Shea (1995), Noel Fox (1997- 2000), Jan Baljet (2001), Ulrik Moller (2002), Adel Zarooni (2003-2004), Art Miller (2005), John Kammerman (2006), Nayma Maya (2007), Mark Van Huesden (2008), James Kfouri (2009), Gurbax Singh (2010), Clark Francis (2011), Rabih Sfeila (2012) and Dermot Davitt (2013).

The two-day tournament is by invitation only and for amateur players with a maximum handicap of 28 for men and 36 for ladies. The 36 holes are played in accordance with Stableford rules, with players playing off full handicap.

Following the first day of golf on November 26, guests will be invited to relax and enjoy Dubai Duty Free’s customary hospitality at the ever-popular The Irish Village, with special entertainment lined up for the evening. 

The tournament, which is organised by Dubai Duty Free, takes place after the Middle East & Africa Duty Free Association (MEADFA) conference being held in Dubai on November 24 and 25 and during the Middle East Exclusive on 25 – 27 November at the Dubai World Trade Centre.  

DDF’s sporting involvements continue in December with the Emirates Dubai Rugby 7s, to be held at the Sevens Dubai as silver sponsor. The airport retailer will also be a sponsor of the Omega Dubai Ladies Masters from December 7-13 at Emirates Golf Club and the UIM Skydive Dubai XCAT World Series on December 11-13 at Mina Seyahi.

As Dubai Duty Free approaches its 31st anniversary on 20th December, which is sure to signal another sales milestone for the airport retailer, the operation is poised for another exciting chapter in its history.
