The Ras Al Khaimah Championship is returning to Al Hamra Golf Club in the United Arab Emirates from January 25-28, 2024, and fans can register for free tickets here.
The Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah hosted the DP World Tour for the first time in 2022 with the inaugural staging of the Ras Al Khaimah Championship, followed the week after by the Ras Al Khaimah Classic.
Following exciting victories that year for Danish Ryder Cup star Nicolai Højgaard and New Zealander Ryan Fox, and by Englishman Daniel Gavins when the Ras Al Khaimah Championship returned in 2023, the tournament is set for a third edition next year.
The spectacular coastal venue of Al Hamra Golf Club hosts once again, with the Peter Harradine-designed layout having also previously welcomed three European Challenge Tour events, including the 2018 Challenge Tour Grand Final.
This year fans can once again enjoy free general admission with registration now open. Fans can upgrade their experience with early bird tickets now available for the Championship Chalet overlooking the 18th Green from AED 750 or Clubhouse Terrace from AED 150.
