Host Ian Cross travels to Dubai, a city that in just a few years has been transformed from desert into a bustling metropolis. Glittering skyscrapers have replaced the palm huts that were typical just 40 years ago. Dubai is famous for its gold, the only seven star hotel in the world – and its six world class golf courses.
Ian starts at the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, situated in the heart of the city and running alongside Dubai Creek. This golf course is one of the icons of the city, and also has gym, swimming pool, steam rooms and six restaurants and bars.
The following day he plays on the Dubai Country Club, a gift from the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed al Maktoum in 1970, and the first golf course in Dubai.
Next, Ian visits the Burj al Arab hotel. Built on its own reclaimed island, the world’s tallest hotel reaches higher than the Eiffel Tower and is claimed to be a seven-star hotel!
Being there during the holy month of Ramadan, Ian notices the fantastic atmosphere on the streets after dark, and learns a bit more about Ramadan with the locals. But just because it gets dark doesn’t mean the golf has to stop!
Ian goes to play on the Nad al Sheba night course with the manager of the UAE national football team. The big advantage with night golf is that in a country where daytime temperatures can reach 130 degrees Fahrenheit, playing at night is a lot more comfortable. He then attends a horse race before trying an exciting local sport – dune bashing!
