Challenge Tour No1 Joachim B Hansen, Frenchman Victor Perez and Finland’s Kalle Samooja ger ready for the season's final event.

The top three players on the European Challenge Tour’s Road to Ras Al Khaimah let their hair down ahead of the season-ending Ras Al Khaimah Challenge Tour grand final when they visited the picturesque Al Wadi Nature Reserve in Ras Al Khaimah.

Challenge Tour No1 Joachim B Hansen, Frenchman Victor Perez and Finland’s Kalle Samooja are going head-to-head at Al Hamra Golf Club from Wednesday in a bid to finish the season as Challenge Tour No1 but the three men came together under the scorching UAE sun to hit some balls into the stunning Al Wadi Nature Reserve.

The reserve, which spans 1,235 acres within Wadi Khadeja, is famed for its natural beauty and wildlife and welcomes guests from across the world who long to experience the sights and sounds of nature in the northern emirate.

As well as the fantastic views, guests can also enjoy a range of activities with falconry shows, camel and horse riding and catch and release fishing all being held in the reserve.

“I had a lot of fun today. It was great to see a bit more of Ras Al Khaimah on what is a very special week for me,” said Hansen.

“I am staying in downtown Ras Al Khaimah this week, which I’m really enjoying,” added Samooja who won the Hainan Open earlier this month. “To come down and see the Al Wadi Nature Reserve has been another fantastic experience.”

Ras Al Khaimah boasts plenty of adventurous activities for thrill seekers to get their adrenaline fix in and around the stunning Jebel Jais, the UAE’s highest mountain range.

Haitham Mattar, CEO of Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, said: “High profile events such as the Ras Al Khaimah Challenge Tour grand final also help us attract an increasing number of international visitors and UAE residents who also want to experience everything Ras Al Khaimah has to offer.”
