How would you like to play golf with Rory McIlroy and Niall Horan in Dubai?

Rory McIlroy will make his long-awaited return to golf in January and Niall Horan is confirmed as one of his playing-partners in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic Pro-Am.

That takes place on Wednesday January 24, when you could also be teeing it up alongside one of the world's top golfers and one of Ireland's biggest music stars as a spot in their Pro-Am fourball is up for grabs in a simple competition.

McIlroy won the Dubai Desert Classic in 2009 and in 2015 and will be back in time to go for his third victory after sitting out the end of the 2017 season due to

He will make his return to competitive golf in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, starting on January 18, and the very next week, you could be right there to get a close-up view on how his game's looking heading into a Ryder Cup year.

The winner of the competition, which is being run through the tournament website, will also land - for themselves and a guest - a seven night stay in Dubai, flights and tickets for all four tournament days at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Not a bad prize.

If, like me, you'd be well up for winning that one, download the 'VoxGolf' app, register an account for free and enter a nine-hole score at any available course. Don't forget to submit your scorecard!

After the closing date on January 11, one winner will be selected. The victor must have an official handicap with limits of 18 for men and 24 for women.
