Golf - Dubai Desert Classic

A familiar stop on the European Tour, the Desert Classic was the first major golf event staged in the Middle East and led to the growth of the so-called "Desert Swing" involving other events in Abu Dhabi and Qatar. It has traditionally been staged at the Emirates Golf Club, apart from 1999 and 2000 when the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club was used.
