Golf has surged in popularity since Dubai opened the first grass course in the Middle East in 1988. A second magnificent grass course, with luxurious club facilities, has been added since. Visitors are welcomed at both these clubs on a 'pay as you play' basis. There are also several pitch and putt courses around the city.

Forays into the desert are irresistably attractive to foreign visistors. The scenery is spectacular and a surprising amount of wildlife may be encountered in the seemingly empty wasteland. There's a choice of transport catering for varying levels of energy, nerve and skill. Wadi bashing is the ultimate get away from it all experience, heading off the beaten track along dry creek beds(wadis) or any unchartered terrain in an off-road vehicle.

Uncrowded, unspoilt, sandy beaches offer a seductive holiday escape from cold northern winters. Warm waters and an abundance of sunshine make Dubai the perfect setting for water sports of every kind - sailing, power-boating etc. Fishing once the mainstay of the local economy, and still an important commercial activity, also attracts the sporting amateur who can hire fully equipped boats and crews for deep-sea fishing trips.
