The Omega Dubai Ladies Masters — the first full Ladies European Tour (LET) event ever to be played in the Middle East — is held under the patronage of HRH Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, wife of HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, at Emirates Golf Club.
The season-ending LET event made its debut in 2006 and boasts a prize fund of euro 500,000 with the winner taking home euro 75,000.
The roll of honour includes Annika Sorenstam (2006, 07), Anja Monke (2008), In Kyung Kim (2009), Iben Tinning (2010) and Alexis Thompson (2011), Shanshan Feng (2012, 14, 15, 16) and Pornanong Phatlum (2013).
Promoted and organized by Golf in Dubai, the tournament has become a permanent feature of the UAE golfing calendar, showcasing the world's leading players every year.
Since its inception, players of the statures of Annika Sorenstam, Laura Davies, Michelle Wie, Christina Kim, In-Kyung Kim, Natalie Gulbis, Kerry Webb, Catriona Matthew, Sophie Gustafason, Alexis Thompson and Shanshan Feng, Cheyenne Woods and Charley Hull, to name a few, have competed in the event, making it one of the most popular stops on the Ladies European Tour.
In 2016, China's Feng secured her record fourth Omega Dubai Ladies Masters victory with a 10-under par 206, two clear of England’s Charley Hull. Starting the final round a good five shots off the pace, Feng shot a magical eight-under-par 64 that represented the biggest final round comeback by a winner.
In 2015, she carded 21-under par 267 for the tournament which equalled her own record winning score set in 2012. Her emphatic 12-shot win was also the largest winning margin in the history of the event, eclipsing the previous best of six shots recorded by Sorenstam in 2006.
