Dubai loves its golf! And Topgolf Dubai only reinforces how strong the city has become as a golfing destination.


Now, I'm by no means a good golfer. But here's the great part - you don't have to be when visiting Topgolf Dubai. It's that simple. It's less about the game, and more about the experience.


Think 10-pin bowling and you're on the right track, only with a driving range instead of bowling isles and a club instead of a bowling ball.

Okay, so travel is still not a very viable option right now is it? So, best to stay put and seek out the stand-out experiences closer to home. Good news then that Topgolf Dubai has opened and is an incredible entertainment destination.


And thinking about it, Topgolf Dubai actually provides many aspects that many of you will enjoy on holiday. Great views of a city skyline, a perfect sunset (if you visit from around 5pm), F&B, a sporting activity and a laugh with friends and family.


Who needs to fly away, ay? My golf ball certainly wasn't that's for sure, it was more trickling slowly away from my many mis-hot shots.


What is Topgolf Dubai?

Topgolf Dubai is a brilliant and fun driving range, but built with the aim of providing a great social experience instead of hours and hours of perfecting your golf swing.


There are 96 climate-controlled hitting bays, each accommodating six people and equipped with your tee-off position, clubs, sofas and a table as well as digital screens to guide you through various different interactive games.


Each game involves you aiming for various targets laid out in front of you on the range.


Topgolf Dubai at Emirates Golf Club

Dubai's Topgolf venue is located at Emirates Golf Club and faces the incredible skyline of Dubai Marina meaning not only do you have an impressive venue to enjoy, but also stunning views.


You can get a wet, damp, drizzly day in the UK on the driving range out of your head now!


Prices are impressively reasonable as well. They start from AED130 per bay for the first hour.
