Over the last three decades, Dubai has grown in reputation as one of the world’s most exciting golf destinations. With several world-class golf courses including ones designed by the sport’s most celebrated stars, golfing enthusiasts are spoilt for choice in the emirate. As the host of major global tournaments, Dubai also offers one of the most packed golfing calendars for those who are ardent fans of the game. Combined with its five-star hospitality and premium dining and viewing experiences, Dubai is a dream hotspot for golf lovers. However, championship golf courses are not the only places where golf is thriving in Dubai. The city is offering a new golfing experience that is changing the way people interact with the sport and encouraging vast numbers of people to pick up a club for the first time. Leading this transformation is Topgolf Dubai, a sporting and entertainment venue that is bringing together people of all ages and skill levels to test their skills. An all-encompassing entertainment venue with golf at its heart, Topgolf Dubai features a three-level complex located at the Emirates Golf Club spanning more than 60,000 square feet. The facility which opened in December 2020, is the first Topgolf venue to be established in the Middle East and Asia. With the capacity to accommodate 1,100 guests, Topgolf Dubai offers interactive games that provide enjoyable experiences for everyone whether they are skilled golfers or not. Featuring 96 climate-controlled driving bays with more than 300 state-of-the-art digital screens, Topgolf offers both amateur and experienced golfers the opportunity to test their driving skills on a stunning rooftop terrace overlooking the Dubai Marina skyline. Guests can enjoy point-scoring golf games using micro-chipped balls that give them instant feedback on the accuracy and distance of their shots on their driving bay screens. Players can choose between various games depending on their skills. Going beyond gaming, Topgolf offers a unique experience that brings together the best of sport and hospitality. Home to three restaurants, a retail space, luxury VIP suites, a mini-golf course and live music, Topgolf is a great location to unwind with friends, family or colleagues over some friendly competition. The venue also features multiple dynamic social event spaces, ideal for year-round celebrations. The Bunker Minigolf and Arcade is an immersive mini-golf experience that pays homage to various sports, including racecar driving, cricket, falconry, tennis, horse racing, cycling, rugby and soccer. The Bunker combines golfing activity with Topgolf's outstanding service in a cool, casual café setting to provide guests the perfect day or evening out with family and friends. The beating heart of Topgolf Dubai and the city's newest nightlife hangout is The Yard, a vibrant hospitality venue featuring live music, sports, delectable food and an outdoor terrace. Visitors can also unwind on the top floor of the complex at The Loft, a space that is ideal for entertaining guests with front-row seats to one of the most iconic vistas in the world. The one-of-a-kind experience offered by Topgolf Dubai, combining golfing, entertainment and dining, is among a diverse set of attractions being highlighted by the #DubaiDestinations initiative recently launched by the Dubai Media Council to showcase the exceptional events and activities offered by the emirate.
