The Els Club, located at Dubai Sports City, has been selected as the preferred golf course to host Callaway's amateur challenge, the Odyssey 1 Million Euro Putt event taking place today (November 18).
The top-prize, international challenge will see one of twelve regional qualifiers sink a 100ft putt to earn themselves a millionaire's bank balance. Spectators of the event include Callaway's visiting tour pros Ernie Els, Greame McDowell, and Nick Dougherty.
Top golfer Ernie Els, designer of The Els Club and Callaway ambassador, expressed his delight that his course had been selected to host such a high-profile event.
"The Odyssey 1 Million Euro Putt is an exciting event for amateur golfers and it is an honour that my course has been chosen to host the challenge. I wish the players all the best," said Els.
The Els Club in Dubai Sports City has been constructed and presented to exceed world-class standards. With a range of thoughtfully-placed tee boxes, fairway pot bunkers and green complexes, coupled with carefully-developed undulation, The Els Club's 18-hole, championship golf course offers a unique addition to the Middle East's growing range of world-class golf facilities.
