About the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open
Abu Dhabi Sports Council and the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Sports Academy, in partnership with the Ladies European Tour, welcome you to this milestone event in the women’s golfing calendar, the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open (FBM Ladies Open), the first-ever exclusively ladies professional golf event to take place in the UAE capital, Abu Dhabi.
The second staging of the tournament was successfully held from 1-4 November 2017 during which a field of Ladies European Tour players competed over the stunning, Gary Player designed oceanfront course at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.
The third staging will take place 10-12 January 2019, as the new season-opening event for the Ladies European Tour. An exciting and innovative new format will see tour professionals and amateurs competing alongside each other for the title across the three days of the tournament, the first event of its kind in the Middle East.
This event, held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak; President of the General Women’s Union, Chief Executive Officer of the Family Development Foundation and President of the Higher Council for Motherhood and Childhood, truly delivers something entirely new in Abu Dhabi sport.
