‘Fore! And they’re off’!
Don’t worry, we haven’t got our sports mixed up. We were just getting a little excited about a package that we’re currently putting the finishing touches to. For those of you that love a spot of golf and a flutter on the horses, we at Motive Travel may have come up with the perfect Middle East getaway. If you’re a member of the Royal Perth Golf Club, you can take on the grand fairways of the Emirates counterpart in Dubai, before taking in the splendour of one of international horse racing’s most coveted occasions – the Dubai World Cup.
Golfing greatness in the golden desert
We’re inviting members of the Royal Perth Golf Club to join us in one of the world’s most futuristic cities for eight days of pure, unadulterated golfing action in March 2016.

For your first step into Dubai’s beautiful golf scene, why not take on the Faldo Course, named and designed for six-time Major winner Nick Faldo? This is a course with technical masters in mind – you’ll need every scrap of experience to score well around here. This isn’t the only course open for your playing pleasure during this extraordinary week in March – the Dubai Creek and the Al Badia, both of which present their own distinct challenges. Why not take a look at what else we’ve got planned for your Middle East golfing extravaganza?
Horses for (golf) courses
Don’t yet turn your sights back to getting on the greens of Western Australia, because we at Motive Travel have another treat in store for you. The Dubai World Cup takes place immediately after the golf tour, so if you know your holes from your hedges, why not stick around for the ‘the world’s richest horse race?’ Some AU$23 million will change hands over the course of nine world class races, and if you’d like a piece of that particular pie, get in touch with your friends at Motive Travel to find out more about the double-whammy trip of a lifetime.
Your golfing sojourn isn’t over yet. In the shadow of the gleaming Burj Khalifa – at 828 metres, the world’s tallest building – you can tee off on the lush greens of the Majlis, an exclusive course famous for hosting the Dubai Desert Classic. This difficult course has a par of 72, stretching for 7,301 yards, according to its official website. Its 18 holes are dotted around Dubai’s soaring skyscrapers, but play out over a peaceful fairway.
