Modern, luxurious and beautiful …. probably the three best words to describe the city of Dubai. If you are looking for something really special for your golfing holiday this year, then look no further.
With five-star hotels, golf courses and leisure facilities, guaranteed sunshine, beautiful beaches and Arabian hospitality, Dubai offers a unique holiday adventure. As one of the seven emirates which make up the United Arab Emirates, and home to a large expatriate population, Dubai is a cosmopolitan city with a distinctive culture blend of old meets new and East meets West.
At only 7 hours away, why not shoot off for 4 or 5 nights to escape the worst of the British weather and experience great golf on some of the best kept courses in the world.
Founded on maritime trading, the emirate has welcomed visitors to its hot, sandy shores for hundreds of years.
