When word reached us that golf was about to meet one of the UAE’s fabled bunches, we did a double take. It seemed such a simple, tempting idea, we wondered why it hadn’t been thought of before.
Al Hamra Golf Club are calling it ‘May Madness’ – a month long celebration of golf at the European Challenge Tour venue paired with a selection of tasty clubhouse fare – all washed down with some sensible adult hydration.
Until May 31 golfers can enjoy selected house beverages and food for up to seven hours, including an hour before tee-off and two hours after your four-hour loop of the Peter Harradine-design (they like to play at a steady, slow-play busting clip in RAK). Food can be ordered from Al Hamra’s halfway pavilion during play and afterwards at The Bay Sports Bar where live sports light up the big screens. Alternatively, take advantage of the terrace overlooking the 18th green before the mercury makes Al fresco dining uncomfortable.
At AED 515pp* on Fridays, Saturday’s and Public holidays, and AED 470* during the week, the offer certainly puts some swanky Dubai brunches in the shade and those don’t include 18-holes of Troon International-quality championship golf.
