27 Nov 2017

One lucky fan will get to play a round with him

1D fans, it seems like your 2018 is already gonna be firing away in the right direction.

Irish singer Niall Horan is set to visit Dubai in January 2018 for the 29th edition of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament, taking place at Emirates Golf Club, from Thu 25 Jan until Sun 28 Jan 2018.

But there’s a twist to the story … because for the first-time ever, Niall will not be hitting the stage with his music, but will instead showcase his golfing skills.

Niall said: "I’m delighted to confirm my attendance at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic in January. It's an incredible event on the European Tour schedule and I am very much looking forward to playing with my pal Rory in the ProAm and attending the Friday night clinic also. Thanks to Omega and Golf in Dubai for the invite, I've not been to Dubai for a while so very much looking forward to returning!"

We are looking forward to it too, Niall. And, it seems like fans do actually have a chance to meet the 24-year-old artist, and play a round of golf with him and Rory McIlroy, a professional golfer, and winner of the 2009 and 2015 Omega Dubai Desert Classic tournament.

Here’s how you can be THE lucky winner:
