Golfing icon Gary Player has announced he will host an Invitational event at the Saadiyat Beach Golf Club in Abu Dhabi next February.

The nine-time Major winner's business interest, Black Knight International, and the Abu Dhabi Sports Council, have linked up in a five-year agreement to stage one of Players' world-renowned charity golf series in the UAE.

An all-star line-up is set to join the 80-year-old at the inaugural tee-off, which has raised more than $60m for charities worldwide.

"We've always wanted to have a Gary Player Invitational in Abu Dhabi because I am so fond of the city. We have had great patience and now we have had the blessing of his Excellency Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak Al Nahyan and the Dubai Sports Council.


"The theme of the event is to raise money for charity but also to get tourism to this wonderful part of the world."
