The 2023 World Amateur Team Championships will tee-off in the UAE

The tournaments will take place in October.

The finest golfers in the amateur ranks will descend on the UAE after the Emirates Golf Federation was announced as the host of the 2023 World Amateur Team Championships.

Pencilled in to tee-off at the Greg Norman-designed Fire Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, it will be the first time the tournament will be held in the Middle East since its inception in 1958.

The golf course will host the 30th women’s championship for the Espirito Santo Trophy from 18 to 21 October and the 33rd men’s championship for the Eisenhower Trophy from 25 to 28 October 2023.

Speaking on the announcement Antony Scanlon, Executive Director of the International Golf Federation said; The Emirates Golf Federation made a compelling case that resonated with our member organisations and we’re very excited to be holding our first World Amateur Team Championships in the Middle East region.

“We look forward to working with the Emirates Golf Federation to deliver a memorable event and experience for the athletes in 2023.”
