The mercury is rising and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club has matched it with a hot summer membership deal.
Joe Way won his first UAE PGA Tour title with panache, chipping in for birdie on his final hole to share the spoils with club-mate Cen Mills at the Dubai Creek UAE PGA Pro-Am in October. There weren’t quite the same optics when he secured the Emirates Golf Club title last week but a win, even achieved ugly, is a win nonetheless.
Chasing the sun is normally a hazard of the job for golfers and golf tournaments. Yet at next week’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic, fading light won’t necessarily prohibit golfers from finishing up their rounds.
In arguably the most significant development for the game in the Middle East since golf first met grass in the UAE nearly 30 years ago, Topgolf is coming to Dubai.
