A range of exciting prizes are on offer for the best players.

After a successful showing in the capital at the Abu Dhabi National Golf Club on April 7, the series of amateur golf events in the Middle East to raise awareness and funds for autism shifts to another one of the emirates on Thursday, April 28.

The event is set to bring together local and international corporates to play and network, followed by a dinner and auction.

Duayne Baron de Waal, CEO of Lifestyle Events, created the Els for Autism Golf Challenge in 2015 at the Els Club Dubai, with proceeds going towards the Dubai Autism Center, the Els for Autism Foundation and the Al Jalila Foundation.

The success of the inaugural year led to the formation of two additional events in Abu Dhabi for this year, including the already-concluded challenge on April 7 and an event set to take place in the fall on September 22 at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club.

Open to all amateur golfers with an official handicap, the format of play will be pairs betterball stableford.

Along with bragging rights for beating the field, the winning pairs will earn an exclusive ticket into the grand finale of the challenge, hosted by the Els for Autism Foundation in Las Vegas.

Dubai’s Els Club will provide the perfect backdrop to the day’s events.

Golfers can also take part in various on-course competitions and Hole-in-One’s to win prizes such as a three-night stay at Ireland’s famed Carton House Hotel and a seven-night stay at Constance Belle Mare Plage in Mauritius.

Following the round of play, the evening portion will consist of dinner, music, live entertainment, raffle prizes and a live charity auction with a range of prominent collectibles up for grabs.
