Ladies Of The UAE Urged To ’Glam Up’ For The Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship
(5 January 2014)


Golf and glamour will come together when the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship returns to the capital later this month.

Event organiser Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority (TCA Abu Dhabi) and title sponsor HSBC are planning an exciting Friday of women-only activities for this year’s championship, which runs January 16-19 at Abu Dhabi Golf Club.

Lady Championship-goers will enter free on Friday 17th January and receive a complimentary drink at the golfing showpiece which has once again attracted some of the sport’s biggest names, including Henrik Stenson, Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson.

Ladies are being encouraged to ‘dress to the nines’ as fashion scouts will roam the course hunting for the ‘Best Dressed Lady’. This year’s stylish winner will take home an all-inclusive trip-of-a-lifetime for two to Bangkok, courtesy of Championship partners Etihad Airways and The St. Regis Saadiyat Island. The fashion scouts will look for ladies who exude their own sense of personal style, glamour and confidence.

At Yas Links Golf Club, another signature Abu Dhabi course, six-time Ladies European Tour winner, Catriona Matthew will tee-off the Ladies Day’s activities when she hosts a ladies-only morning golf clinic. Scottish professional Matthew, who has four LPGA tour wins under her belt, will host the clinic exclusively for members of Abu Dhabi golf clubs who will gain exclusive tips and advice from Matthew, who won last September’s Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open.

The Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is organised by Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority. Places for Catriona Matthew’s golf clinic are limited to 75 people and are allocated on a first-come-first-served basis to all female members of Golf in Abu Dhabi clubs. Members should contact their club managers for further details.

Tickets and packages to the Championship are available via the event’s official website - - and Ticketmaster (, at AED50 for a daily pass and AED150 for a four-day pass. Guests staying at any Abu Dhabi hotel over the Championship period enter free.
