Defending champ: Dipesh Makwana.

With the qualifiers having taken place in various clubs across the UAE, there is a sense of anticipation as Luckiest Ball on Earth 2015 qualifiers await the Grand Final.

The 21 qualifiers from Emirates Golf Federation-affiliated golf clubs will test their mettle on Fire course at Jumeirah Golf Estates on Sunday, October 25, with unbelievable prizes on offer, including the chance to play the Rolex Pro-Am with one of the top 60 players on the European Tour before the DP World Tour Championship.

The overall winner of the Luckiest Ball Grand Final will receive both an invitation to the Pro-Am, where he stands the chance to play alongside the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson, as well as an invite to the Championship Beach Party, which will be held at Nasimi Beach, Atlantis, The Palm on November 17.

And that’s not the end of the rewards that come the way of the one person who would have beaten 800 participants from all over the UAE over the last few weeks.

The winner also gets two VIP Hospitality passes to the Championship Chalet for the season-ending championship.

– Going Out: Register for Yas Links Mixed Open

– Gary Player: Golf needs Woods but he won't get back to World No.1

There are also prizes for coming second and third including a playing spot in the European Tour Golf Day on November 23.

The Luckiest Ball on Earth Series has proved to be a huge success since it was launched in 2011 when Kevin Barrett of Arabian Ranches won his spot in the Rolex Pro-Am.

Since then Ornella Parigi (Saadiyat Beach Golf Club) in 2012, Maureen Platt (Emirates Golf Club) in 2013 and Dipesh Makwana (Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa), who played alongside Danny Willett last year, have enjoyed the once-in-a-lifetime experience of lining up next to some of the game’s biggest names.

The format for the Grand Final will be an 18-hole individual Stableford playing off the Signature Tees, meaning the Fire course will play to around 6,800 yards.

As well as the main prize, there will be subsidiary prizes for Ladies Longest Drive, Men’s Longest Drive and Nearest to the Pin.
