Even better, head to the city’s most famous course, the Emirates Golf club, which hosts the annual Dubai Desert Classic (total prize moneyis a cool $2.5 million!)

It is absolutley stunning,the 18th hole is reckoned to have one of the finest approaches in the world.

Almost as impressive (though each to their own), is the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, which boasts a challenging par – 72 course along with a fun “Pitch n Putt course, plus an impressive clubhouse whose architecture echoes that of the Sydney Opera House

Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Gran Prix 2015

 

The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix 2015 is the last race of the F1 calendar but is far from the least.

It was introduced in 2009, the Yas Marina circuit is a modern, complex, track which is set on the edge of the Yas Marina which features the world’s longest straight.

One side of the circuit is watched by people on boats moored in the harbour and surrounded by magnificent over the top grand stands and architecture on the other.

Built to the highest of specification, supplies were brought in from around the world, including the surface of the track that was brought in from England, the track, grandstands, and pits were all built in two years. The track is in its infancy after six F1 grand prix races;

Sebastian Vettel has made it one of his favourite’s circuits with three wins, Lewis Hamilton has claimed top spot twice and Kimi Räikkönen has claimed one race win here.

Although the track does not have the history of other tracks in the F1 schedule it does have the prestigious background of one of the world’s richest countries. The final race of the Formula 1 season on the 29th November will be hosted in Abu Dhabi, which crowns the drivers and constructors champion for the season.

With many more magnificent grand prix at the circuit and more history to be made the Abu Dhabi GP, the race will be around for many years to come, a major fixture in the Formula 1 calendar and one that all the drivers and the teams look forward to.

Horse Racing in the UAE

 

 Born of noble Bedouin traditions, racing in the UAE has rapidly evolved and the UAE now has a rightful place alongside the great racing nations.

The modernisation of racing in the UAE has mirrored the development of the nation, and this transformation has been fuelled by the passion of the Emirati people.

 

Professional racing began in the UAE in 1992 coinciding with the formation of the ERA. In the relatively short period of time that professional racing has existed in the UAE, the country has developed an industry and infrastructure that takes many other racing centres decades to achieve.

Since 1992, professional racing in the UAE has been conducted at five racecourse in the UAE – Nad Al Sheba

(Dubai Racing Club), Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club), Jebel Ali (Jebel Ali Racecourse),

Sharjah (Sharjah Equestrian & Racing Club) and Ghantoot (Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club).

The UAE boasts magnificent quarantine centres, modern feed mills, a state-of-the-art equine hospital and a number of private training establishments featuring the very latest, high-tech training surfaces.

The inaugural Dubai World Cup was conducted at Nad Al Sheba in 1996 and was won by the great Cigar.

On Dubai World Cup day in 2001, the Millenium Grandstand was opened at Nad Al Sheba.

In 2005, the ERA hosted the International Apprentice Jockey Challenage at Nad Al Sheba.

In 2007, the ERA hosted the 31st Asian Racing Conference, the largest and most global racing conference in the world. Over 900 participants from 35 countries enjoyed a comphrensive and innovative conference program which cumumlinated in attedning the opening night of the 2007 Dubai International Racing Carnival.

The eve of the 2007 Dubai World Cup saw HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum usher in a new era for UAE racing with the announcement of Meydan, a new world class racing destination that would replace the Nad Al Sheba racecourse.

2009 saw the final races conducted at Nad Al Sheba on Dubai World Cup day, with the impressive silouette of the Meydan grandstand visible in the midst.

The 2014/15 racing season will see racing conducted at five venues –  Meydan (Dubai Racing Club), which will encapsulate the Dubai World Cup Carnival meetings, Jebel Ali (Jebel Ali Racecourse), Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi Equestrian Club), Sharjah (Sharjah Equestrian & Racing Club) and Al Ain (Al Ain Racecourse).
