The Omega Dubai Ladies Masters is a professional golf tournament on the Ladies European Tour (LET) that was played for the first time in October 2006.[1] Its prize fund of 500,000 made it the fourth most valuable tournament on the LET. Promoted and organised by golf in Dubai, the tournament is played on the Majlis course at Emirates Golf Club, which also hosts the Omega Dubai Desert Classic on the men's European Tour.

Since 2009, Omega, a luxury watch company based in Switzerland, has been the title sponsor of the tournament.

Annika Sörenstam won the event the first two times it was played. Sörenstam beat out Karrie Webb in 2006, and in 2007 defeated Iben Tinning by two shots. The 2008 event, which was Sörenstam's final tournament before her retirement, was won by Germany's Anja Monke.

The 2016 event was shortened to 54 holes after caddie Maximilian Zechmann collapsed and died during the first round.[2]
