Held for the second time, this year’s four-day Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open (FBMLO) tournament will take place from Wednesday November 1st to Saturday November 4th at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, offering four action-packed days of fun and golf. While this tournament is not recognized across the world as a major championship, it has attracted many international players. Held under the patronage of Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, who is the President of the General Women’s Union, this event always delivers something entirely new and interesting in Abu Dhabi Sports.
It is essential for FBMLO to be community-focused, and hence tickets to this year’s tournament are free for all spectators. Although this event may mainly come under the preference of golf lovers, there are plenty of on-site activities that are suitable for families. 126 of the best female golfers will be competing in the championship, for a total prize of $550,000.
Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Sports Academy (FBMA) partners with Abu Dhabi Sports Council to supervise the event. FBMA serves a significant mission of hosting plenty of sports events on the local level and managing and developing young talents. Teaming up with Abu Dhabi Sports Council is a remarkable effort as it helps ensure that sports becomes deeply rooted in the upcoming generation’s lives. Quoting Dr. Mai Al Jabar, Board Member of FBMA, “Introducing youth to sports in a fun and exciting environment often yields further interest and encourages long term participation from a young age.”
One of the world’s most captivating golfing projects, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club seems to be the perfect venue for this event. The beachfront golf course with its stunning beauty and spectacular views provides an unmatched golfing experience.
Families can enjoy this event through a range of entertaining activities. You can opt to get involved in a fun cricket session by Abu Dhabi Cricket and try your hand at Paint Golf. You can also feast on a range of food trucks with plenty of healthy options as well as well-deserved treats.
We must say that Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open is a great opportunity for women, providing a platform for more female centric international tournaments to be held in the future in the UAE.
