“The beginning of 2022 is an immensely exciting period for Troon International with a series of European Tour events taking place at Troon® managed venues. The Peter Harradine designed course at Al Hamra Golf Club will be a fitting challenge to those playing in the inaugural Ras Al Khaimah Championship“.
