The DP World Tour Championship, Dubai is a golf tournament on the European Tour and is the climax of the European Tour Race to Dubai. It is contested on the Earth course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The title sponsor is DP World, a shipping company based in Dubai.

The tournament was first held in 2009 when the Order of Merit was replaced by the Race to Dubai. It is contested by the leading 60 players in the Race to Dubai at the start of the tournament. It is the replacement for the Volvo Masters, which was a similar event for the leading 60 money winners on the Order of Merit.

Originally the tournament was to have a record prize fund of $10,000,000, of which the winner's share would be $1,666,660, however in September 2009 it was announced that there would be a 25% reduction in both the overall prize fund and the winners cheque.[4] The prize fund was increased to $8,000,000 in 2012.

The tournament also determines the Race to Dubai Bonus Pool, which goes to the top golfers on the Race to Dubai after the tournament. It was original set at $10,000,000 but reduced to $7,500,000 paid to the top 15 players with the Race to Dubai winner getting $1.5 million. In 2012 the bonus pool was cut in half to $3.75 million and reduced to the top 10 golfers, with the winner getting $1.0 million.

The 2013 DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates delivered a US$44 million gross economic benefit to Dubai, according to independent research commissioned by tournament organisers, The European Tour as stated in Vision magazine.
