The tension is heating up in the Luckiest Ball on Earth 2015 series as the qualifiers are now complete and the hugely-anticipated Grand Final is a few weeks away.
The 21 qualifiers from Emirates Golf Federation affiliated golf clubs in the United Arab Emirates will test their mettle on the Fire course at Jumeirah Golf Estates on Sunday October 25 with unbelievable prizes on offer, including the chance to play with one of the top 60 players on The European Tour two days before the DP World Tour Championship gets under way in the Rolex Pro-Am.
If you are victorious in the Luckiest Ball Grand Final you’ll receive an invitation to the Rolex Pro-Am, where you have the chance to play alongside the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, and an invite to the Championship Beach Party being held at Nasimi Beach, Atlantis, The Palm on November 17.
However, that is not all you achieve for coming out on top of a competition for more than 800 participants from all over the UAE. You’ll also win two VIP Hospitality passes to the Championship Chalet for the season-ending DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates from November 19-22.
There are also prizes for coming second and third, including a playing spot in the European Tour Golf Day on November 23, but all the competitors will have their eyes locked firmly on the incredible rewards for winning the Grand Final.
The Luckiest Ball on Earth Series has proved a roaring success since it was launched in 2011 when Kevin Barrett of Arabian Ranches Golf Club won his spot in the Rolex Pro-Am. Since then Ornella Parigi (Saadiyat Beach Golf Club) in 2012, Maureen Platt (Emirates Golf Club) in 2013 and Dipesh Makwana (Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa), who played alongside Danny Willett last year, have enjoyed the once-in-a-lifetime experience of lining up next to some of the game’s biggest names.
The format for the Luckiest Ball on Earth Grand Final will be an 18-hole individual stableford, playing off the Signature Tees, meaning the Fire course will play to around 6,800 yards. As well as the main prize there will be subsidiary prizes for Ladies Longest Drive, Men’s Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin.
