Organisers of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters have confirmed that the 19th edition of the popular European Tour golf event will be held at Doha Golf Club from 27 – 30 January 2016.

The highly anticipated event is organised by The Qatar Golf Association (QGA), the Qatar Olympic Committee (QOC), Doha Golf Club and long-term title sponsor, Commercial Bank. The tournament is considered Qatar’s annual ‘must-attend’ sporting and social event, first held in 1998 and widely known for bringing together the world’s best golf talent; the likes of Branden Grace, Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson have all competed for the USD2.5 million prize purse in past years.

Sitting at the heart of The European Tour’s Middle East swing, the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters was attended by over 26,000 spectators in 2015 and broadcast to a global TV audience of over 400 million viewers. For the 19th edition of the event, all eyes will be on Doha as the biggest names in the sport vie for the Mother of Pearl Trophy on one of the most challenging courses on The Tour.

“The Commercial Bank Qatar Masters is a leading fixture on Qatar’s sporting calendar. Since its inception, the event has complemented the growth of golf in the country. The tournament also continues to contribute to encouraging young Qataris to take up the sport and learn from The European Tour stars,” said Hassan Al Nuaimi, President of QGA.

“Preparations for the next tournament are well underway, together with our partners who have played a vital role in enhancing the event experience for both players and spectators each year. We look forward to welcoming the players, spectators and our valued partners to Doha Golf Club for another edition of world-class golf in January 2016,” added Al Nuaimi.

Abdulla Saleh Al Raisi, CEO of Commercial Bank, added: “The Commercial Bank Qatar Masters is one of Qatar’s most popular annual sporting events and offers something for everyone – players, golf fans and families. Golf fans can watch the world’s best golfers in action and families can enjoy a weekend outdoors socialising in the family zone, public village and shopping boulevard. The event is also a huge opportunity for some of Qatar’s promising young golfers to play alongside the best players in the world. We are proud to be working with the QGA, QOC and Doha Golf Club again for the 11th year in a row, to stage one of the leading golfing events in the region.”
