At the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, a Greg Norman (Bob Harrison) Creation 7708 yards par 72 created from the sandy wastes surrounding the capital of the United Arab Emirates. The annual closing event for the Euro tour is normally played in the Fire course, but the Earth course gets the nod.

Volunteers of America, LPGA,
The LPGA heads to The Colony, Dallas Texas for the Volunteers of America event at the Old American G.C. A Tripp Davis and Justin Leonard creation a 7084 yard Par 71 for the men, but for the ladies this week it’s 6517 yards par 71 the men’s slope of 145 and Course rating of 75.2 is probably relevant as this course is considered a copy of traditional old school design, featuring well trapped greens and interesting slopes. The ladies seem to be playing much more interesting courses than the PGA tour.
Rarely much value or the ladies on Betfair but
Nicole Broch Larsen-$400
In Gee Chun-$48
Sung Hyun Park-$44
Mayakoba Classic, PGA Tour
The PGA Tour heads to Mexico for the Mayakoba and Mexicans seem to do well here except for Matt Kuchars caddy, but Matt seems to have avoided Mayakoba this year. Played at El Cameleon Golf Resort, the course designed by Greg Norman (Bob Harrison) is a 7039 Par 72 with a slope rating of 139 and a newly developed paspalum grass on fairways and greens.
