In our humble opinion, this golf guide is the perfect excuse to go and buy that over-priced sportswear and the matching trainers. To then go and strut your stuff on the perfectly manicured lawns of some of the most stunning, world-renowned golf courses across the UAE. But if you, like thousands of other people in Dubai are avid golf fans and wouldn’t dream of skipping your Saturday morning tee off, then you’ve come to the right place.
Dubai especially has some of the prettiest and most challenging courses around the world, with big names like Trump (love him or hate him) and Colin Montgomerie laying down turf to add to the wide range of golf options here in the UAE.
People play golf all-year round of course, with early morning starts or a round of night golf but right now, the weather is perfect for a great day of swinging your 9 iron, practising the perfect putt and maybe a cheeky beverage in the clubhouse after to quench your thirst.
This is why we thought it prudent to whip up a quick list of golf courses on your Entertainer App because let’s be frank, golf is expensive and if you can get 2-for-1 on a round of golf with your friends, why wouldn’t you!?
