DUBAI: The Omega Dubai Desert Classic held from Jan.28 to Feb.3 at the Emirates Golf Club drew a crowd of fans throughout the exciting week. Dubai Duty Free, a patron sponsor of the event, announced the lucky winner of a Mercedes Benz S500 in the Finest Surprise promotion in Series 1514.

Scotland’s Stephen Gallacher, champion of the tournament, made the draw accompanied by Dubai Duty Free’s Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman, Salah Tahlak, Senior Vice President (Corporate Communications), and Sinead El Sibai, Vice President(Marketing).
