Dubai may only be a stop-over to many, but for golfers, this incredible city has become a destination in itself.
From its low-key beginnings when the Dubai Creek Golf Club opened in 1971 with just a sandy course, it has since gained an esteemed reputation for its spectacular, pristinely-kept courses, facilities and excellent accommodation and is now considered to be one of the finest Dubai golf courses.
It’s 71 par championship course has 6857 yards of lush fairways dotted with water features, date trees and coconut palms. The club also boasts a nine-hole course, driving range, outstanding coaching facilities and numerous restaurants.
In March 2011 the Dubai Creek Golf Club will host the 2011 Festival of Golf and will act as a commercial hub for businesses such as golf tour operators, hoteliers, property developers and tournament organisers planning for the coming year and beyond.
The event promises to be an outstanding networking opportunity for the sport’s aficionados plus industry movers and shakers like course designers, equipment manufacturers, new product suppliers, high profile personalities and some of the world’s top players.
The weather is certain to be glorious and the setting, which is by a tranquil creek only minutes from the city centre, has helped secure the club’s position as being in the ‘Top 100 Must Play’ courses on the planet.
Bookyourgolf.net can offer excellent Dubai golf holiday packages that include green fees, cart hire and practice balls throughout the Festival period.
