The Plate Event - 2014/15
For the unlucky one’s who bow out in the first round of the main Golf Care Matchplay Championship event, there’s now a second chance to win a seat on the plane to Dubai!

‘The Plate’ competition will run alongside the main event and costs just £15 per person to enter. The top two players in men’s singles and the winning men’s pair from the UK final held at Mottram Hall will be coming to Dubai. The winners will get to enjoy 7-nights at the Courtyard by Marriott, Dubai Green Community and play four rounds at the Els Club as part of the Golf Care Matchplay Championship group.

"The Els Club Dubai really feels like my home club away from home. Whenever I'm in that part of the world I practice there and play there. The Desert links design makes it a very special golf course and everyone at Ernie Els Design is understandably proud of what we've achieved. I think it's a strong test for players of all standards and in my view there's no better venue for the finals of The Matchplay Championship."
