The juxtaposed position of the lush fairways and the barren desert gave rise to the term 'The Desert Miracle' back in 1988, when Florida-based course designer Karl Litten was commissioned by his Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, when the first all grass championship course emerged from the arid desert sands.

The course came to prominence when it was awarded its first European Tour event back in 1989 when the Dubai Desert Classic was born. The Majlis, which translates to 'Meeting Place' in Arabic, measures

7,211 yards and flows around the original desert dunes. The course features hundreds of indigenous species of flora and fauna which are complemented by the beautifully lush Bermuda grass fairways that wind their way around the seven fresh and salt-water lakes, bringing water into play on ten of the eighteen holes.

My tips to Win:

There are not many players that can pull off back-to-back victories but in his current form Tyrrell Hatton 15/2 – with Ladbrokes – has to be one of them especially with his record here. Tyrrell has played in this event six times and had three Top 10 finishes with two of those being third-places finishes and will no doubt start as favourite this week.

I am going to stick with Tommy Fleetwood 11/1 – with BetFred – this week who is bedding in new TaylorMade equipment at the moment minus his wedges and putter, Tommy didn’t finish the way he had hoped but played some great golf in his middle two rounds in Abu Dhabi. Fleetwood has never really challenged at the Emirates GC, but does have two Top 10 finishes here, but it’s not the strongest of fields and he will expect to be in the thick of it come Sunday.

What an end to last year it was for Christiaan Bezuidenjout 25/1 – with WilliamHill – with two wins in his homeland, Christiaan also hasn’t been outside the Top 15 in his five starts on this season’s European Tours wraparound season and comes into this week on the back of a twelfth-place finish in Abu Dhabi. Bezuidenjout had a runner-up finish here last year just losing out in a play-off and will be looking to go one better this week.

Each-way tips:

I am sure Rafa Cabrera Bello 45/1 – with 888Sport – will take a lot of positives from his fourth-place finish at the weekends Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and his third round 73 was really the only blemish to a good week. Rafa is a past champion here and also has a runner-up finish and four other Top 10s and will be in confident mood when he arrives here this week.

Jason Scrivener 66/1 – with BetFred – should also be another player arriving in a buoyant mood after his runner-up finish in Abu Dhabi which he cemented with a final round 66. Jason had three Top 10 finishes after the restart last year and he also has two Top 10 finishes from his four starts in this event, so he obviously knows he can play well here and with that added positive energy from the weekends finish, I think these are great odds for the Australian.

Outside tip:

Another South African who had a good finish here last year is Dean Burmester 100/1 – with UniBet – who had a third-place finish despite firing level par for his final two rounds to make it his second Top 25 from his two starts and it seems the Emirates GC suits his eye. Dean finished last year well, only finishing outside the Top 20 once in his final five starts with two Top 4 finishes and I feel these are very good odds even though he missed the cut last week.

Longer odds:

Try Kurt Kitayama 150/1 – with UniBet

As always good luck
