For the second time, Al Hamra Golf Club will host the DP World Tour between Thursday, 2 and Sunday, 5 February, 2023. Formerly known as the European Tour, the continual development of the tournaments attracts the world’s best women, men, and players with disabilities to champion golf through award-winning social media and technologies. The tour is visiting Ras Al Khaimah for the second time. DP World, the leading provider of global smart end-to-end supply chain and logistics solutions, encourages engagement and champions sustainability in golf through its Green Drive Initiative.
Al Hamra Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course, has been impeccably planned and sculpted by internationally renowned golf course architect Peter Harradine. The course is diverse, with four open water lagoons, undulating desert landscapes and perfectly manicured greens on the shores of the Arabian Gulf. The Par 72 championship golf course measures 7,325 yards. The front nine holes measure 3,578 yards, and the back nine holes measure 3,747 yards. The beautifully landscaped course rises and falls around a series of lagoons and bunkers along the beachfront.
