This week sees five of our members at Skipton Golf Club travel to Dubai to work as volunteers on the DP World Tour Championship. The final event of the European PGA season will see the top 60 players vying for the $8 million prize money. Henrik Stenson, Danny Willett, Alex Noren and Rory McIlroy are also all still in contention to win the season-long Race to Dubai.
Our members travelling to Dubai are Alistair Coy, Amanda & Paul Kilner, Steve Willock and this year’s Lady Captain, Sophie Eddison. Alistair has worked on this tournament several times before and inspired Amanda & Paul to have a go. Amanda & Paul’s enthusiasm for the week has rubbed off on Steve and Sophie who will be experiencing the tournament for the first time.
Alistair has been writing a blog about his travels for many years and this trip will be no different. For a taste of life ‘inside the ropes’ and what it’s like to meet some of the most famous golfers in the world, please follow this link:
