Visitors to Dubai will be able to enjoy a lot of westernised creature comforts side-by-side with historic Arabic culture at any time of the year, but for those wanting to enjoy a bit of sporting excellence the Dubai Desert Classic golf tournament offers just that opportunity.
Held at the lush and green Emirates Golf Club, where the only sand is in the bunkers, the tournament features plenty of prize money and consequently a host of top names in the sport.
This year, for example, saw Swede Henrik Stenson walk off with the trophy, beating the likes of Ernie Els and Tiger Woods, plus a number of other stars.
Visitors to Dubai will be able to see the greats in action between January 28th and February 3rd 2008.
In the meantime, Dubai offers a host of great beaches with guaranteed sunshine and the chance to enjoy good bars, restaurants and a spot of local culture.
