There are a number of sports that go hand in hand and one of the more popular combinations is, Golf and Racing.

Dubai World Cup 2021
When visiting a destination like Dubai, there are a number of activities and excursions that many people desire to tick off the bucket list. Dubai boasts hyperboles and superlatives with the biggest and best of everything from hotels, shopping malls, racecourses and of course…golf courses too. The Dubai World Cup is the perfect Racing Break for anyone wanting to experience the splendour that Dubai is so well known for, with the richest race day in the world taking centre stage and the chance to add a round of golf or two at some of the world’s best golf courses too.
Pick from a number of courses and play at any time of day…or night, as most golf courses are floodlit when light turns to darkness; which is sometimes preferable with the high temperatures during the day. Some favourites are the Els Club; renowned as one of the finest in the Middle East, Emirates Golf Club and the Dubai Creek which overlooks the historical stretch of water around which Dubai was built. Where better to play a round of golf than somewhere that there is almost guaranteed warmth and sunshine, immaculately manicured greens and stunning suburban surroundings.
