Get into the swing of the celebrations and scoop mega holiday prizes at a specially-designed ‘hole-in-one’ challenge, which gives would-be golfers a chance to show off their short game skills with a testing chip onto a floating green 60 feet away. The competition is being running by the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, another great UAE capital event taking place a fortnight after the Volvo Ocean Race leaves.

Those who make the ‘ace’ shot during the fortnight-long hosting of the Volvo Ocean Race will go into a weekly draw to win a holiday of a life-time to join the race fleet in either Sanya, China or Galway, Ireland – which will welcome the ‘Everest of Sailing’ in February and July 2012 respectively.

Up for grabs are two grand prizes, which include two economy return tickets to either stopover on Etihad Airways, the UAE’s award-winning national airline; four nights luxury bed and breakfast accommodation; limousine airport transfers as well as on and off water hospitality to enjoy all the Volvo Ocean Race action.

In addition, everyone taking part will get a free season ticket to enjoy the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, which boasts a stellar field including three current Major winners as well as four current and previous world number ones, including UAE capital debutant Tiger Woods. There are also extra chances to win cool championship clothing and signed merchandise from many world-class golfers.
