April – May 2013


Emirates Golf Club reached a landmark milestone last month, marking 25 years since its inauguration. 2013 continues to be a special year of celebration and there is plenty going on over the coming weeks. Take part in the Emirates 25 Hole Open on 18th April, a unique 25 hole tournament across the Majlis and Faldo courses, open to all golfers with a valid handicap. This unique event will certainly be a memorable finale to the Anniversary celebrations. Le Classique’s Business Lunch allows you to enjoy award-winning French cuisine during the day, with a set menu starting from just AED 98 per person for two courses. The popular Gourmet Brunch continues to run every Saturday, offering an array of a la carte dishes and refreshing beverages. Make Spike Bar your dedicated venue for live sporting coverage over the coming months, as you catch all the action on our big screens, including the upcoming Champions League Final and The US Open. Before the summer sets in, enjoy our Sunset BBQ on the terrace every Friday evening, offering a delicious selection of fresh seafood and succulent meats. The Academy’s Learn Golf In A Week programme is an excellent way of learning the basics of the game. Our signature beginners’ group programme sees you get to grips with golf in four lessons spread over just one week. Fit Lab offers a varied and full schedule of fitness classes, with some new additions including Pre-Natal Yoga and Pure Body Blast, along with Pilates, Artistic Yoga, Zumba, Kettlebell Training and TRX Team Camp. I look forward to seeing you at the Club soon. Best wishes,

We all need a little more sleep in our lives don’t you think? Sleep time is so important, and getting in your eight hours really should be a priority, but will your life allow this? Whether it’s getting up for kids, working late or an active social calendar, most people in this city are stressed out and exhausted. Within those eight stolen hours of shut eye, the body is repairing and regenerating cells to make us all look fit and healthy when we wake up. So, as Dubai in general is not getting enough sleep, we decided that we would create a specialised massage to lull you into dreamland. So grab your PJ’S and make your next massage a ‘Pillow Talk’ (60 min AED 350). This super relaxing massage infused with lavender is performed with slow long soothing movements, with a rhythm that will lull you off to sleep in no time (we even have a duvet, and tuck you in to bed)! Post treatment, our very own hot cocoa will be served with marshmallows- yummy! Put the aahh in Spa-aahh with SensAsia, please call +971 4 417 9820 to make an appointment today.
