It's a bit of wet Sunday here in Auckland. Are you heading out to the course or are you tempted to stay inside and do some reading on future possible golf travel.

Yesterday we shared the picture below. Do you where it is? If you said Dubai, then you are correct!

Dubai is a major node in air traffic routes connecting New Zealanders with flights into Europe and down into Africa. Known for its opulence and luxury lifestyle, Dubai is an excellent golf travel destination.

Whatever your desired level of accommodation is, whether staying at the most luxurious hotel on the planet, the 7 star Burj Al Arab or perhaps one of the many five star hotels such as the Hilton, the Intercontinental or the Park Hyatt, Dubai easily caters for your lodging needs. 

Here are are a list of three of the most highly rated golf courses in Dubai

The Dubai Creek & Golf Club is an 18 hole par 71 championship course that has hosted many tournaments including the Dubai Desert Classic.

The Emirates Golf Club which has hosted the Omega Dubai Desert Class for many a year has two distinct courses, the Majlis course and the Faldo course, both championship courses that are challenging and testing. The Faldo course also offers night golf which is a great golfing experience.

Jumeriah Golf Estates is a prestigious golf property that has two Greg Norman designed courses - Earth and Fire Championship courses

All the above golf courses have a number of high quality wrap around services from elite gyms and professional fitness instructors, to high quality restaurants, bars and cafes. It is best to see these courses as places to go play golf but also enjoy the company of family and friends in a beautiful relaxed environment.

Considering the distance from New Zealand, we recommend Dubai as either an "entree" or a "dessert" type option on your way or back from one of our premium golf tours in Europe or Africa. Spending 3 days in Dubai either way will help you to feel relaxed and ready to go.
