They say golf ruins a good walk but this really rather impressive package begs to differ. In fact it doesnt even beg - it takes a five iron to Mark Twains nonsense and sends it flying down the fairway. And since it offers you the chance to play your way around two of Dubais finest golf courses before seeing how the professionals do it at the prestigious DP World Tour Championships, it has every right to do just that.
But before you tee off at the world-famous Faldo Course, before you reach for that driver at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club, and before you prepare to watch the likes of Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia and Justin Rose in action at one of the biggest golf tournaments in the world, youll be settling in at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City. Close to all the sights, sounds and world-class attractions that make this vibrant part of the world such a draw for the cosmopolitan elite, there are few better places to stay in a city synonymous with luxury, decadence and superlative service.
And while the fascinating city of Dubai is indeed one thats well worth exploring, when theres world class golf like this on offer its easy to see why your mind might drift away from the Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Mall and the Jumeirah Beach to more important matters - like nailing that tricky par five at Arabian Ranches, or putting for par at a course designed by Nick Faldo. In true Dubai style, these courses really are some of the best the world has to offer, with players travelling from far and wide for the privilege of playing them. And now you can be one of them, with the very welcome addition of luxury accommodation and four days of watching the very best golfers in the game.
