Some of the biggest names in women’s golf have arrived in Abu Dhabi ahead of the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open.
Staged at Saadiyat Beach Golf Club from Wednesday (November 1), golf fans across the capital will have the chance to see American star and defending champion Beth Allen, be joined by newly appointed Solheim Cup Captain Catriona Matthew, as well as Brits Georgia Hall and Mel Reid. The Swedes will also be looking for podium glory this week with two teenage wildcard picks joining the fray, Amanda Linnér and Julia Engström, who have been invited to this year’s FBMLO by the legendary Annika Sörenstam.
Three of the ladies had the opportunity to enjoy a special visit to the Liwa Desert ahead of the tournament. As the setting Arabian sun bathed across the stunning vista, LET stalwarts Belen Mozo and Amy Boulden were joined by rookie Inci Mehmet taking in the breath-taking view while practising their swings amongst the sand dunes.
LETAS Order of Merit winner Meghan MacLaren is also in the field and will be looking to build upon her fantastic season.
