Featured European Tour Destination: Dubai

Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2020

Omega Dubai Desert Classic is a European Tour golf tournament held on the  Majlis course  at Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. When founded in 1989, it was the first European Tour event to be played in the Middle East. 

Emirates Golf Club (
Majlis course): As the long-time standard bearer of golf in the Middle East, the magnificent Majlis course is undoubtedly a course that sits comfortably among the world's elite. Contrasting with its sister layout, the also excellent Faldo course, the Majlis is less exposed to the full-on views of the towering skyline of Dubai Media City and Dubai Marina. The Majli's serenely flowing landscape, in its early days an oasis in the desert, is now surrounded by the voracious property developments that define Dubai. 

Dubbed the 'desert miracle', The Majlis course was the first championship grass golf course to open in the Middle East, and is still arguably the best. It is the regular venue for the Dubai Desert Classic and the first course in the Middle East to host the Ladies European Tour.

Should you want to tee off else where:

If you’re planning to fly in to Dubai for the tournament, it is worth teeing off at the MontgomerieThis is a big, expansive and open layout, a golfing oasis bounded throughout by large villas, and dotted with occasional palms and small trees within the course. The luxury residences should not come into play, they are thankfully set well back from the prodigious roller-coaster earth mounding that defines the often generously wide fairways.
 
If this is your first time to Dubai, don’t miss the city’s famed mall and panoramic views from the Burj Khalifa skyscraper. Visit the souk to check out Dubai’s lust for gold and definitely make a trip to Ferrari World if you’re bringing your kids along.
