Golf Holiday Experience in the UAE

For those of you planning to visit and play on one of the many superb golf courses in the UAE – Congratulations! You have made a very wise decision and the only challenge you and your friends face, apart from making par is where do I start?
Did you know there are more than 20 superb golf courses in the UAE – from the recently opened Trump Course. (Check your Bank Balance!) to the most famous Emirates Golf Course, host of the Dubai Desert Classic. Go there, right by the Metro, buy the tee shirt and make your friends jealous on your return, not to mention the suntan. Sun is guaranteed BTW!
There are many- not so well known courses that are absolute”hidden gems” that will allow you to face your Bank Manager on your return. How about this as an idea for you and 3 of your golfing friends. Flying to Dubai from the U.K or Ireland has never been easier. Frequent flights with top airlines, shop around.
Some tips, based on my own experience from a recent trip.
  •  September through to April is absolutely ideal climate wise.
  •  Bring your own clubs, hiring is expensive.
  •  Do some basic investigation on hotels using a reputable site with proven LOCAL experience.
  •  Plan/book in advance, earlier booking gets the optimum deal.
We flew from the UK to Dubai. Rested up by the pool on day 1 chilled and spoilt ourselves rotten. The choice of hotels in Dubai is genuinely mind blowing. We based ourselves close to the Airport for logistical purposes and because of top choice and range.
 On day 2 we played the Creek Club. It opened 24 yrs ago and it’s iconic club house is worth the visit alone. Superb course, stunning  views, make sure you take a camera. The 17th and 18th are a problem, you just cannot concentrate and then there’s the 19th! Fabulous. At least you can concentrate and re-live your shots there. Sit outside and have a good look at others suffering, lovely panoramic view of the course and the creek.

Courtesy of a good friend who had lived in the UAE and based on his  recommendation, on day 3 we checked out of Dubai and moved to Ras Al Khaimah, fondly known as RAK. Introduce this gem to your friends and become a hero.

Just imagine, 2 nights at the Waldorf Astoria right by a superb course, Al Hamra Golf Club. Check it out, beautiful course, the 18th has to be seen to be believed. Good Luck avoiding the water, not to mention the trees! Once again, a fabulous 19th awaits. Played it again on day 4, it was just fabulous – the course, not my golf.
It is a genuine 65 Min. drive (within the limit!) from the Club to the famous World Trade Centre, Dubai. Day 5 we treated/spoilt ourselves.
Put it on your bucket list, your friends will love you even more! As a tourist n Dubai, I can highly recommend it!
Good Luck and enjoy.
