A dream destination in any circumstances, let alone for a golf holiday! Dubai is now the most popular destination for holidaymakers heading to the Middle East and it is not difficult to see why; wonderful friendly people, incredible sandy beaches and sunshine all year round. It is a truly cosmopolitan region that provides the exciting mysteries of the east alongside a unique international feel.

While Dubai is synonymous with duty free shopping, breathtaking architecture, fine dining and lively nightlife, it is not so instantly associated with golf holidays. Those true students of the game will be aware that the country now hosts several PGA events, most notably the Dubai Desert Classic, but most people will not be aware how many other superb golf courses the region has to offer.

The area boasts seven truly world class golf courses and we have selected two courses to look at in detail in order to whet your appetite.

Dubai Creek Golf Yacht Club

This is the venue for the PGA Desert Classic. It is easy to see why the world's top golfers are tempted to this competition. Shaded by the city, Dubai Creek genuinely takes your breath away. A 6,839 yard par 72 rolls through prestigiously well groomed fairways lined with tropical feeling palms and shrubs and some of the most scenic man made water hazards you could wish to hit your ball into!

The Montgomerie

Because Dubai is so new to the world of golf, and its climate does not create natural landscapes that can be adopted for golf; some of the world's best players have been invited to design courses made literally from open desert space.

As the name suggests, this course was designed by Colin Montgomerie, who clearly has a mean streak in him reflected in the 70 bunkers and 14 lakes situated around this 7308 yard par 72 course. A difficult course which offers the world's biggest single green on the par three 13th.

If the two courses identified are not enough to tempt you, Dubai also boasts some of the best offshore sporting activities on the globe and while golf is our main concern, it would be remiss of us not to mention the incredible deep sea fishing, snorkelling and scuba diving on offer in the Arabian Sea which is unparalleled anywhere in the world.

If you are after truly breathtaking vistas with courses that you have to look at twice to believe your eyes then delve a little deeper into your pocket and check out Dubai.
