US Open champion Dustin Johnson, world No.2 Rory McIlroy, The Open winner Henrik Stenson and defending champion Rickie Fowler will be among the stars at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship from January 19 to 22, 2017.

With a stellar line-up, not only is it a once-in-a-lifetime chance to get inside the ropes with the famous names at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, but those who sign up will enjoy some exciting new incentives.

For the first time, participants that volunteer for two days or more will be invited to an exclusive after-party at the Champions Club, while there are also attractive prizes up for grabs.

All volunteers will be entered into a special raffle draw to win prizes including Etihad Airways flights for two, as well as golf four- ball, spa experiences and dining and hotel vouchers.

As well as playing an integral role in the Championship’s success at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, there will be an opportunity to enjoy a BBQ meal on the Saturday as well as owning official merchandise including caps and polo shirts and a photo with the champion.

Now in its 12th edition, the tournament continues to go from strength to strength, attracting the biggest names in golf and it is now considered a key event in the UAE’s ever-growing sporting calendar.

Peter German, the Championship’s tournament director, believes the volunteer opportunities are becoming more popular across the UAE and further afield because of the star quality of the players.

“Volunteers play a key role in the success of the Championship and we are grateful to all those fans from the UAE and around the world who jump at the chance to witness their favourite players in action,” he said.

“Whether you are a keen golfer or simply have an interest in sport, volunteering at the Championship offers a unique chance to be part of the action and to see some of the world’s best players up close.”
