Omega Dubai Desert Classic


Tournament History




The first full Ladies European Tour event ever to be played in the Middle East, the Omega Dubai Ladies Classic captures the spirit of a dynamic city always driving for progress and improvement.

The season-ending Omega Dubai Ladies Classic is the flagship tournament on the Ladies European Tour and a must-play event for players seeking to improve their Order of Merit rankings.

With a roll of honour that includes three Major winners with a collective haul of 12 Major titles, the Omega Dubai Ladies Classic is known as the ‘Major of the Middle East.’

Since its inception in 2006, the Omega Dubai Ladies Classic has been staged at Emirates Golf Club, the first all-grass course in the region dubbed the ‘Desert Miracle’ when it opened its doors in 1988.

The tournament, which boasts a prize fund of $500,000, has a reputation for its interesting field and broadening the appeal of golf, with special invites not only offered to top LPGA players, but also to social media influencers and leading players from the Arab world.

Past champions include Annika Sorenstam (2006, 07), Anja Monke (2008), In Kyung Kim (2009), Iben Tinning (2010) and Alexis Thompson (2011), Shanshan Feng (2012, 14, 15, 16), Pornanong Phatlum (2013) and Angel Yin (2017).
