VPAR Live Golf Scoring announces the launch of its latest international operations centre in the heart of Dubai. From its UAE hub VPAR’s dedicated local team offers the world’s most advanced interactive golf tournament experience to clubs, resorts and event organisers across the Gulf.

“Golf in the region continues to progress at an incredible pace,” says Ross Bain, Principal of VPAR UAE. “From opening its first 18 hole grass course just over twenty years ago the Emirates is now home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring and challenging championship courses.

“Spectacular global events energise the golf scene here, such as the DP World Tour Championship – the season-ending showpiece to the European Tour in November.” Continues Ross Bain.  “I am delighted that VPAR can now offer the same immersive, competitive and professional tournament experience to amateur golfers at every club in the region.”

VPAR UAE’s debut was at one of the Emirates most anticipated events, The Dubai Golf Trophy, at the end of September. This Ryder Cup style event, contested over two days at the famous Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and Emirates Golf Club, saw 16 top ranked amateurs play the top 16 ranked Pro’s in the region. VPAR also supported a number of additional events in October including the Royal Golf Club’s fifth annual Pro Am tournament in Bahrain.

Ross Bain concludes: “I am delighted by the fantastic feedback from our clients and players so far.  It is very exciting to be able to introduce VPAR to the region and bring a whole new dimension to the golfing experience.”

VPAR Live Golf Scoring is the world’s most powerful handheld real-time scoring and live leaderboard experience available at hundreds of leading clubs and resorts worldwide.

With VPAR, everyone can enjoy the action live online – from colleagues back in the office to family at home, or friends watching the interactive screens in the clubhouse. VPAR is the most exciting and powerful way to get inside the game.
