The Festival of Golf is a celebration of the sport we love with like minded people. A popular concept that sold out its first edition in just a couple of months. Following the success of our 2022 Event in Dubai, which saw a truly international roster of 60 golfers from 7 countries go head to head to be crowned our first ever winners, we will be returning to the UAE in 2023.

The International Pairs will be heading to Abu Dhabi for an unforgetable International Pairs Festival of Golf in 2023.

The Event will be played in true International Pairs style, with 2-players teams going head to head in various fun yet competitive formats like, Scramble, Greensomes, and Betterball over 3 rounds. There is an optional, yet special 4th round for our golf enthusiasts; the night golf scramble, which will take place between the 2nd and 3rd rounds for those that prefer the extra round of golf opposed to a day off.

The Festival of Golf powered by GolfTraveller has managed to secure some of the top hotels and golf courses at exceptionally good rates, starting from €1390 per person. The event will take place from 26-31 March 2023 and will include 5 nights at some of the most luxurious hotels in Abu Dhabi as well as up to 4 Rounds of Golf at some of the most prestigious golf courses the UAE has to offer.
