Dubai Golf Holidays
There’s nothing about Dubai which isn’t extravagant. From the never-ending skyscrapers, to the malls draped in gold and designers from all over the world. So when it comes to golf, you can expect to be pretty well looked after too.
Golf Holidays in Dubai are becoming more and more popular with a range of luxury hotels having courses within the resort. You can play Championship Standard courses which are often used for professional tournaments to a backdrop of fantastic weather and no waiting in the clubhouse for the rain to stop.
Where to Spend a Golf Break in Dubai
Across the city you won’t be short of a luxury place to stay. Unlike many other countries or regions to enjoy a golfing holiday, many of the courses in Dubai lie in the very centre of the city, so you’ll never be far from absolutely everything you need.
Locating yourself towards The Palm Jumeirah gives you a great central spot within close range of most courses in the centre of Dubai while giving you plenty of transport options for heading out to the resorts on the outskirts of the city.
The Emirates Golf Club, just a stone’s throw from The Palm was redesigned a decade ago by Nick Faldo and is one of the finest courses in the city. Originally named The Wadi it has bunkers galore, plenty of hazards, glorious fairways, and floodlights, meaning you can even enjoy a late night round of golf should that take your fancy.
A little further out, on the banks of Dubai Creek and just by Dubai International Airtport is Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. With immaculate fairways overlooking the creek, it’s one of the prettiest spots in the city. The creek also has a number of high-end restaurants as well as a yacht club if you’re feeling particularly sea faring. As players on the course you’ll be in good company, Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke currently hold the course record on the club’s 18-hole, par-71 championship course.

What Else To Do
In a place where opulence and extravagance are the order of the day, you’ll find plenty to see and do from grabbing a bargain in the bazaars to malls with just about every designer imaginable.
A must stop for anyone is the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper. With a total of 57 elevators, you can be whizzed up to a height of 555 metres and look down on the city. What you’ll be staggered by is just how many golf courses there are in the area.
It may be difficult to tear yourself away from the course, but if you fancy something active that doesn’t involve (golf) clubs, no Dubai holiday is complete without grabbing a jet ski and heading out to sea. Out in the harbour you can look back at what has become a stunning city before riding the waves at breakneck speed. It really is a thrill a minute.
