Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates known for luxury shopping, ultramodern architecture and a lively nightlife scene. Burj Khalifa, an 830m-tall tower, dominates the skyscraper-filled skyline. At its foot lies Dubai Fountain, with jets and lights choreographed to music. On artificial islands just offshore is Atlantis, The Palm, a resort with water and marine-animal parks.

Dubai is home to Home to three of the world’s top 100 golf courses and host to three major world tournaments including the Race to Dubai.

The Dubai golf scene is very vibrant, very diverse – there are extremely good golf courses in the region. We have high-profile professional golf tournaments and in the winter months, it really is one of the best places on the planet to play golf. The quality and diversity of the courses are really quite exceptional: you’ve got desert golf, mature parkland-style golf and beachfront golf.

Accessibility to some of the best golf courses and course condition. The courses are always pristine. There’s a lot of variety. And then there’s the service. All the clubs in Dubai really know how to treat visiting golfers and that’s what sets the experience apart. It’s not just about playing 18 holes. From when you arrive at the front door to when you leave at the bag drop, you’re treated like a king.

Flight times from the UK to Dubai are around 7 – 8 hours.
