Host Ian Cross travels to Dubai, a city that in just a few years has been transformed from desert into a bustling metropolis. Glittering skyscrapers have replaced the palm huts that were typical just 40 years ago. Dubai is famous for its gold, the only seven star hotel in the world... and its six world class golf courses.
Ian Cross starts at the Dubai Creek Club, situated in the heart of the city and running alongside of Dubai creek. The following days he plays on the Dubai Country Club, the first golf course in Dubai. Ian visits Burj al Arab hotel. Built on its own reclaimed island, the world’s tallest hotel reaches higher than the Eiffel Tower and is claimed to be a seven-star hotel!
After a brief over view of other golf courses in Dubai, Ian learns more about the national sport of falconry at the Al Maha resort. Finally he heads to the Emirates club regarded by many as the best course in Dubai. Golf, like everything else, is booming in Dubai and whether you’re a golfer or not, Dubai is a really exciting place to be.
