Jumeirah Golf Estates retains DP World Tour Championship for 10 years

The DP World Tour today announces a new ten-year agreement with Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai, that will see the venue remain as host venue of the season ending DP World Tour Championship until 2031.

Speaking about the extended agreement Guy Kinnings, Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Commercial Officer of the DP World Tour, said: “We have always had extremely positive feedback from players and spectators about the facilities at Jumeirah Golf Estates and the 18th hole on the Earth Course, an intimidating par five surrounded by water, has become an iconic backdrop for our season finale.

“This new long-term deal allows us to plan ahead and make sure that future editions of the DP World Tour Championship continue to set new standards in fan engagement. The Tour’s links to the Emirate of Dubai date back to 1989, and this announcement further solidifies a relationship that continues to place Dubai as a central destination in the sporting calendar each year.”
