Dubai is preparing for a huge golf tournament this coming weekend. It is called “The Road to Dubai”. The European golfers are heading this way to play at a course not far from my villa. The course was designed by Greg Norman. I was able to get free tickets to attend the event. The winner of the event will walk away with $1.5 million.
I have attached some photos of some of the golf courses in and around Dubai. That is one thing about Benghazi, Libya, a city of a million people, and not one golf course. Dubai has approximately 2.2 million people and I did a quick count and I think they have nine courses.
The one photo shows the Dubai Metro light rail system (Nakheel Station) near the Emirates Golf Club. The EGC is where the Dubai Desert Classic Golf Tournament is played. This event will take place at the beginning of February 2012. I will have to see if I can figure out a way to get some free tickets for that one.
