Having developed from a desert outpost into a vacation hotspot where tourists from all around the globe visit to enjoy sunshine, shopping and family fun, Dubai offers amazing and unique opportunities for sightseeing. Discover Burj Khalifa (the world’s tallest building), the Bastakia quarter, which preserves a taste of the city's past, and the numerous malls. Dubai is a word-class holiday destination, with warm weather all year round and plenty of luxurious activities for you to choose from, including a marvelous golfing experience. In recent years Dubai has begun attracting players from all over the world with its amazing scenery, spectacular clubhouses and excellent facilities that feature golf academies, recreation amenities and residential developments. The Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, a true golfer’s paradise, is located in the heart of the city, just minutes from the international airport. The majestic clubhouse, with a design inspired by the sails of a traditional Arab dhow, has become one of the most photographed landmarks since opening in 1993. Dubai is also the host city for many world-class international tournaments, among them the Omega Dubai Desert Classic at the Emirates Golf Club and the final event of the season-long Race to Dubai that is played at Jumeirah Golf Estates. The contemporary courses here are equally compelling, with signature designs from the world's best, including Montgomerie, Norman, Bjorn and Faldo, and arguably the finest conditioning that can be found anywhere.
