The world final of the 2016 season.

From 5th to 10th March 2017 the national winners from around 40 nations will experience their personal "Major tournament". They have all accomplished a great achievement, have qualified for the World Final of the BMW Golf Cup International and will experience an unforgettable week in Dubai: The fascinating architecture and the unique character of the metropolis, one of the most beautiful golf resorts on earth and encounters with golf enthusiasts from around the world.

Special Guest

No World Final of the BMW Golf Cup International would be complete without a golfing legend on hand to honour the finalists with a golf clinic and present the trophies. And who better to fill this role than one of the biggest names in golf: Colin Montgomerie.



If anyone knows how to be successful on the golf course, it is Colin Montgomerie. Born in Glasgow in 1963, he has forged one of the most impressive careers in European golf. Montgomerie turned pro in 1988 and immediately received his first award: European Tour Rookie of the Year. The first tournament win followed in 1989 at the Portuguese Open.
Since then, the popular Scot has won 31 titles, including the 1999 BMW International Open. No player has won the “European Tour Order of Merit” as often as “Monty”, who has achieved this feat no less than eight times.
The name Colin Montgomerie hit the headlines again in 2010. Already regarded as one of the best Ryder Cup players of all time, he this time managed to win the coveted trophy back from the USA as captain. In extreme Welsh weather, Montgomerie used all his experience to guide his team to victory in a thriller that went right down to the wire. In 2013 he was anointed in the “World Golf Hall of Fame”.
The exclusive golf clinic means amateurs at the World Final of the BMW Golf Cup International will also be able to benefit from Montgomerie’s wealth of experience. In 2014 the Scot reached another impressive milestone: his 600th tournament on the European Tour.


Dubai in all its glory.

The World Final of the BMW Golf Cup International is far more than just another golf tournament. Together with their guests, the world finalists are treated to an unforgettable programme away from the course, as well as exclusive evening events: from the welcome evening under the night sky to the closing Gala Dinner with Colin Montgomerie. Only guests may participate in events from the side programme, and these can only be booked on-site. The programme is subject to change.

Playing handicap: As there are different handicap systems existing around the world, we try to secure a fair competition by setting a specific World Final playing handicap for each player. The playing handicap will be set by the German Golf Federation and is based on the current handicap and/or the result in the National Final.

Individual prizes: The tournament will be played over 54 holes (Stableford, net). The rules of the R&A Rules Limited and the local rules will apply.

In the event of a tie for the first individual place after 54 holes, the winner will be decided by a sudden death play-off (based on net scores). In the event of a tie for any of the other places, the result will be determined on countback over the last 36, 18, 9, 6, 3, 2, 1 hole(s). The decision of the committee is final.

National team prizes: The individual net scores of the players from each country will be added together to produce a national team score. In the event of a tie for any of the places, the result will be determined on countback over the last 36, 18, 9, 6, 3, 2, 1 hole(s). Prizes will be awarded to the top three teams.
