Dubai is a golfer's paradise, but even for non-players the golf clubs are worth a visit for the spectacular architecture of their clubhouses and the successful landscaping of the desert. The world-famous Majilis course at the Emirates Golf Club hosts the European PGA event, the Dubai Desert Classic, and its signature clubhouse is modelled to look like Bedouin tents. Visitors looking for a different golfing experience can arrange a game at the oldest course in the emirates, the Dubai Country Club, where golfers are given a piece of artificial turf to hit their shots from, as the whole course is sand. Or if the heat is too great golfers can even try some night golf under the floodlights at the Nad al Sheeba Club. As a year-round golfing destination, Dubai has the unique privilege of being the only place to host major international golf tournaments on both the European and Asian PGA circuits. The courses and facilities are first rate with all the comforts, including motorised golf carts, beverage carts, quality equipment and automated GPS yardage devices.
