The unveiling took place at Jumeirah Golf Estates ahead of the 2016 DP World Tour Championship – the final tournament of the season and the culmination of the Race to Dubai.
And the stars of the tournament were on hand to help with the unveiling, with winner of the 2015 Race to Dubai and DP World Tour Championship, Rory McIlroy, revealing his affection for the city and playing golf in the UAE.
“Dubai has always been a special place for me. I made my first cut here on the European Tour and then went on to have my first as a professional win in the Dubai Desert Classic. It’s been a pretty amazing journey since then – and throughout all the success I have enjoyed around the world, Dubai has been a constant part of the story for me, my family and friends.”He continued: “I have been lucky enough to win the DP World Tour Championship twice as well as three Race to Dubai titles and I’m a resident here as it is the perfect place to come and work on my game. It’s become a real home from home for me so I always love coming back.”
