Dubai to Host 2023 World Amateur Team Championships

Bermuda 2016 Team

The International Golf Federation (IGF) announced Dubai is to host the 2023 World Amateur Team Championships.

The Emirates Golf Federation was selected over the Singapore Golf Association after a vote at the virtual IGF biennial meeting this week.

It will be the first time the competition, which dates back to 1958, is held in the Middle East.

"Both candidates provided exceptionally strong bid proposals, which was duly noted by both the IGF Administrative Committee and the IGF bid panel," Antony Scanlon, IGF executive director, said.

"We greatly appreciate the interest and strong case presented by the Singapore Golf Association.

"At the same time, 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."

Jumeirah Golf Estates has been put forward as the proposed venue for the 2023 World Amateur Team Championships.

It will be the first to be held with a reduced scope of one golf course and a minimum of 36 teams to lessen the cost and complexity of hosting the event, and will also be the first to be held during an odd year to avoid conflict with future Summer Olympic Games.

"It is an honor for the United Arab Emirates and the Emirates Golf Federation to win the election for the 2023 World Amateur Team Championships," said Emirates Golf Federation chair Shaikh Fahim Bin Sultan Al Qasimi.

"We would like to thank the International Golf Federation and their team for working tirelessly with us on the bid application.

"We would also like to thank all of the IGF members for their votes and giving us this opportunity.

"We look forward to welcoming all of the delegates and athletes into the UAE.

"Golf in the UAE and region is continuing to grow and this event will further push our vision in golf development.

"We are excited to work with the IGF and our partners in making this championship a successful reality."

Singapore was due to host the 2020 event this month, after it was moved from Hong Kong due to the anti-Government unrest in the city.

However, the competition was then called off entirely due to the coronavirus pandemic, with the biennial meeting, which was due to be held alongside, also moving online as a result.

Le Golf National in France is due to stage the next edition of the event in 2022.

IslandStats.com
During the Live Islandstats.com Sports Show, Sean Sovacool the Director of the Bermuda Championship announced that the tournament has another big name in Henrik Stenson.

Stenson is a Swedish professional golfer who plays both on the PGA and European Tours.

He is the first male Swedish and first male Nordic major champion, having won the 2016 Open Championship at Royal Troon with a major championship record score of 264. His list of wins also includes some of the other most prestigious tournaments around the world; The Players Championship, WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, the World Cup, the Tour Championship, the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, the South African Open, and Nedbank Golf Challenge.

A two-time European Tour Golfer of the Year (2013 and 2016), he has spent over 300 weeks ranked in the top ten of the Official World Golf Ranking and his career-high world ranking of second is the best by any male Swedish golfer.

In 2013, Stenson won the U.S. PGA Tour's FedEx Cup and the European Tour's Race to Dubai, thus becoming the first player to win both and to win the season finales of both tours.
