Dubai Golf Courses


Night time at an Arab country may feel mysterious and enchanted but the day brings a sense of freshness and renewal especially for golf travelers in Dubai. First class golf courses offer unique facilities and unmatched hospitality fused with uniquely laid out holes, magnificent sceneries of the desert and rich fairways for golf enthusiasts coming from all over the world.

More and more corporate professionals choose to include golfing as part of their business itinerary or corporate programs. The Managing Director of Dubai Golf, Rod Bogg says, “We have fabulous golfing facilities in Dubai. We have some of the best courses in the world and without doubt some of the best clubhouses.”

One example is the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club with the awesome view of the shoreline and uniquely designed clubhouse. The 18-hole golf course offering a par-72 covers over 6,800 acres and is located along the well-known Dubai Creek.

The Emirates Golf Club which was the home of the PGA European Tour Dubai Desert Classic attracts both golfer- and non-golfer tourists worldwide. The first grass course in the Persian Gulf area is the par-72 Majlis Championship Course which spans over 7,100 yards. The course’s highlight is its 8th hole which tests the golfers’ skills in driving the ball in an uphill turf.

Two golf courses are housed within the Abu Dhabi Golf Club by Sheraton, The National Course and The Garden Course. Both professionals and budding golfers will surely enjoy these course layouts designed by Peter Harradine. The 18-holes are carefully laid and blended with the natural desert setting with scattered palms, lakes and bunkers. Other amenities include night time golfing, practice driving ranges and personal coaching. Shopaholics will surely enjoy the Pro Shop while other wellness enthusiasts can spend time at the different fitness facilities like fitness gym, pools, tennis, as well as other facilities.

Featuring Greece’s The Costa Navarino Resort


Summer is a season of enjoyment and fun under the sun. One European spot worth jetting off is Greece which is very popular because of its sunny climate, soothing beaches and golf resorts. Peloponnese in the southern region of Greece houses the Costa Navarino Resort where golf enthusiasts and non-golfers alike can surely have fun.

Peloponnese has more than 4,000 years of recorded history and is one of the Greek regions with the most cultural heritage evidenced by more traditional Greek culture within its surroundings. Though golf is still in its early stage in the area and with just one resort offering the service, the Costa Navarino Resort is one of its kind and worthy of your visit.

The golf resort houses two magnificent courses in one of the most attractive parts of Greece. The Dunes Course offers spectacular seaside views and rivers within the resort. It offers 6,775 yards of course with compassionately positioned tees and enjoyably challenging holes over landscapes filled with traditional Greek traditions and and legacy.

The 6,229-yard Bay Course is a more relaxing one with amazingly unobstructed views of the sea and nearby mountains offering a more strategically designed layout. Several holes are laid along the coastline while two others are overlooking the historical Navarino Bay.

The Costa Navarino is indeed a memorable place for a golf holiday. Golfers will surely be thrilled while non-golfers can enjoy taking a walk and relax while experiencing the unique ambience that only this part of the world can offer.
