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.
However, championship golf courses are not the only places where golf is thriving in Dubai. The city now offers a 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 sq ft. 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, It offers interactive games that provide enjoyable experiences for everyone, regardless of skill level.
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 skills on a 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 is also home to three restaurants, a golf retail store, VIP suites, a mini-golf course and live music.
The Bunker Minigolf and Arcade pays homage to various sports, including motorsports, cricket, falconry, tennis, horse racing, cycling, rugby and football in a casual cafe setting, while The Yard features live music, sports, food and an outdoor terrace.
Topgolf Dubai, with its golf, 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.
