DP World Tour Launches Online eTour Golf Competition


DP World Tour have announced they will be launching a new eTour golf competition in partnership with World Golf Tour (WGT) by Topgolf and DreamHack Sports Games.

Opening to players on August 31st, the competition will be on the WGT game using their virtual recreation of the Wolf Creek Golf Course in Nevada, USA.

This competition will not be the first arrangement between the Topgolf, DreamHack, and DP World Tour. A 2020 European eTour on the platform saw 750,000 entries and five million rounds of golf played.

Commenting on the new competition, DP Tour managing director of European tour productions, Richard Bunn said, “The esports industry allows the DP World Tour to engage with our existing audience in a different way and attract new fans through our broadcast and digital platforms.”

“After working together with WGT by Topgolf and DreamHack Sports Games before on the European eTour, we knew they were the perfect partners to help introduce a new DP World Tour branded competition to our fans,” he said.

Four stages of competition will culminate in the grand final being played out live at DP World’s Flow Pavilion in Expo City, Dubai.

DP World chief communications officer, Daniel van Otterdijk, added “We’re delighted to be part of the new global DP World eTour competition and particularly pleased to be able to host the grand finale here in Dubai, in what will be a spectacular showdown.

“Dubai is not only one of the most prominent sports capitals of the world, but also a hub of world-class technology and innovation,” he said.

Tickets are now available for the fourth annual Women In Sport Summit, which will provide real stories, skills and career moves, from administrators to athletes, and will give a platform for honest conversations and exclusive networking opportunities, with game-changing discussions about the growth, value, and the future of women in sport.
