I’ve been to Dubai couple of times, always enjoyed it very much, did a lot of touristy things, did a lot of expat things, played a lot of golf—but what I didn’t do for some reason is night golf: golfing under floodlights.
See Iona Stephen in this Golfing World video teeing it off at the Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club Dubai to get some impression how that looks like. As I haven’t experienced this myself, it’s hard to assess how the actual feeling might be, whether it’s such a different game that it’s not real golf anymore. Watching the video, it does look like proper golf and I’m intrigued to check it out myself soon.
So, when are you heading to some of the places where night golf is possible? And where is it possible altogether?
Well, taking the COVID-19 travel restrictions aside, this is a list of courses (which I found at leadingcourses.com) that offer night golf for their courses. I’m sure this list is not exhaustive, but it’s a good starting point nonetheless. Keep my fingers crossed there is one near by you.
