Dubai is one of the world’s most exclusive and luxurious destinations for high-class travellers, but it also boasts some incredible golf courses. In fact, visiting Dubai for a golfing trip might be exactly what you’ve been looking for. The region’s two main golf clubs, the Emirates Golf Club (established over 22 years ago) and the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, offer some of the best experiences in the world for players looking for a relaxing game with beautiful surroundings.
In 2016 alone, Dubai’s famous courses have received numerous awards, including multiple entries on Golf Digest’s Top 10 Golf Courses in the Middle East, and several titles from 59club including The Ultimate Members Club, Gold Flag Award, Green Keeper of the Year and Golf Group of the Year for Dubai Golf, the group which manages the majority of the premier courses.
In Dubai the hotels and accommodation are of the highest class, and their golf courses are no different. At all the major destinations, you will find beautiful green golf courses surrounded by palm trees, several of them right by the ocean. Since much of the area surrounded Dubai is man-made, including many of its islands just off the coast, the carefully crafted landscapes of its golf courses blend in seamlessly. It’s a unique destination since you can play a few rounds while taking in the breathtaking views of the city skyline, with stunning vistas and immaculate green grass right alongside the world’s finest skyscraper hotels.
Not only that, but the services and facilities on offer at each luxury golf course in Dubai are second-to-none, with fine cuisine, gyms and even luxury homes all in one place. Golfers visiting the Emirates or Dubai Creek courses need not worry about finding any facilities elsewhere, since every need is already catered for. The Emirates Golf Club is especially widely recognised as one of Dubai’s premier leisure hubs, offering almost any activity or service you could need while on your trip.
