FASHION, FUN AND FAIRWAYS: LADIES DAY DRAWS THE CROWDS IN ABU DHABI

20 January 2017, Abu Dhabi, UAE: The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship’s famous ‘Ladies Day’ was as busy as ever, as fashion lined the fairways and thousands enjoyed thrilling golf alongside top-class hospitality, entertainment and family fun.

A highlight of the day saw lucky Championship-goer Megan Derricott win a trip for two to New York Fashion Week with Etihad Airways in the highly contested ‘Best Dressed’ competition, judged by Emirates Woman magazine.

“I can’t believe it – I came for the golf and am going home with a trip to New York, so it’s been a really good day!” said Megan. “This is my third year in a row coming to the Championship; the atmosphere is fantastic and the line-up is great.”

The fun continues tomorrow (Saturday) with the Championship offering free entry for anyone wearing Championship red. Fans, families and friends will enjoy sports activities, delicious food truck cuisine and competitions in the Championship Village, in between watching the likes of Henrik Stenson, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler and Martin Kaymer compete on course.
