Golf in Dubai

Dubai golf courses

If you plan to play golf in Dubai you will be in the midst of not just gushing oil but some of the most visually stunning golf courses in the world where the city's international tag of "bigger and better" is aptly showcased. Located on the coast of the Persian Gulf, it is a truly an amazing playground to combine a golf holiday with some decadent shopping therapy pleasures.

Don't just dream about booking a golf holiday in Dubai; make sure it is on the bucket list of golfing destinations even if you have to bring the family with you. You will not regret seeing this beautiful part of the world where the Arabian Desert conjures up the rich mystery of the East, from flat sandy desert patterns to salt-crusted coastal plains with dunes tinged in red.  Occasional date palms, acacia and ghaf trees, wild grasses, deep gorges and the Western Al Hajar Mountains all bring a different dimension to the design of the golf courses in the Dubai.  The proximity of the coastline to the city, gives Dubai a further dimension to having a golf holiday here.

When booking your golf holiday remember that August is the hottest month in Dubai with humid temperatures soaring to around 41°C and light relief at night around 30 °C. So if the heat is not your thing be careful with the dates when you go for your golf holiday.  Winter is when you can luxuriate as you meander around a golf course in the warmth of balmy temperatures and sunny days and is the perfect time to play golf in Dubai, with January being the coldest time of the year. 

Known as the "shopping capital of the Middle East", Dubai has over 70 shopping centers with the world's behemoth retail fix of the tax-free kind to be found at the Dubai Mall. In Dubai ultra modern architecture vies for attention beside ancient world wonders. The raucous and colorful souk areas on the Dubai Creek have to be seen to be believed, where you can have a camel ride, hop onto a cable car or visit one of the many tourist attractions such as the Dolphinarium.  

Traditional Arab and Islamic culture is reflected in the architecture, music, cuisine, dress and way of life. You will hear the call to prayer from any one of the many mosques dotted around the city five times a day.  A weekend here is Friday and Saturday in deference to the holiness of Fridays to the Muslim religion. This is definitely the city that revealing a bit of flesh is a definite "no no" and it is wise for both men and women to cover up the bare skin, especially the shoulders and the knees.  And, no public displays of affection are allowed under Sharia Laws, if you don't want to be sent packing with your golf bag in tow for having a quick peck in the streets. Apart from these minor inconveniences for Western heathens, Dubai is an opulent, somewhat flashy destination, wallowing in luxury and leisure extravagance. It is not a city for those with mothballs in their wallets.

Best Golf Clubs in Dubai

Golf courses in Dubai range from a pseudo desert oasis such as Al Badia Golf Club where the excellent high standard not just of the course but of the club house as well, will have you wanting to return for just one more game, to the 9 hole championship Jebel Ali Golf Resort where the uniqueness of each hole is almost visually an overload of the senses.  If you want 18 holes the design of the course allows for creating multiple play options.  Using the existing lie of the land, the Arabian Ranches Golf Course designed by Ian Baker-Finch and Dirk Bouts, is a brilliant free flowing course through sand dunes.  The Dubai Creek Golf Club has date palms and coconut trees lining immaculately manicured fairways and greens with complimenting luxurious facilities such as the Yacht Club, where the dreams of being treated like royalty actually do come true.

A must play whilst on a golf holiday in Dubai is both the Faldo and the Majlis Courses of the Emirates Golf Club.  The Faldo should be played for the challenges of the many tees and bunkers. The Majlis, for the abundant native flora and fauna, which weaves around both fresh and saltwater lakes.  The most spectacular and the first course to be built as a championship golf course, the Jumeirah Golf Estates Earth Course is only rivaled by the different challenges to be had on the Fire Course.  The Els Course in Dubai is awash in native vegetation, which adds to the natural environment where sandy waste areas around the holes give the golfer a new set of tricks to learn.  The epitome of luxury is to be found at The Address Montgomerie Dubai, where the golf course truly reflects what money can produce in a golf course. 

Golf in Dubai will leave you awe-struck by the beauty of the scenery of the courses or at the very least they will definitely give your brain a workout in relation to how to tackle that next hole without hitting a date palm. Check out our blog post on Best Golf Courses in Dubai.
