This will be the eighth edition of the prestigious event, held under the banner of sister organisation, World Travel Awards.
A number of category winners will be awarded at a gala ceremony at the Park Hyatt, including Best Golf Resort, Best Golf Course, Best Tour Operator and Best New Course.
Chris Frost, managing director, World Golf Awards, said: “We are tremendously excited to bring World Golf Awards to Dubai for the first time.
“With every continent represented, the day will be a global gathering of the golf tourism industry, as we find out which brands are shaping our future.”
He added: “Despite the challenges that golf tourism has faced in recent unprecedented times; the annual programme has seen a record number of votes cast by both golf consumers and industry professionals.
“The appetite for golf tourism has never been stronger and bodes well for our industry’s future as the global recovery gains momentum.”
