world luxury | WEEKLY | Issue 9 | DUBAI SPECIAL

CHamPionSHiP CourSe overvieW Although The Address Montgomerie Dubai has evolved into one of the Middle East's most luxurious and desirable golfing destinations in recent times, the key to its success has always remained contingent upon the quality of the golf course that would become the focal point for one of Dubai's most exclusive residential communities, Emirates Hills. The course provides the player with undulating "links land" style fairways with generous landing areas which challenge and intrigue all levels of player. Although large in size, the greens can be very misleading, especially as they are consistently rolling above 9.5feet. Plenty of shape throughout the greens can result in some very trying pus. One of the signature holes is the par 5 fourth, dubbed the Snake hole for its saddleback fairway which doglegs towards the green, with two bunkers behind forming the eyes of the snake. Further on, the par 5 ninth, with water down the le, is a tough finish to the opening half. The par 3 thirteenth, a hole designed in the shape of the UAE, boasts a 360 degree teeing area around an island fairway and green, allowing for a completely different golf hole to be played every time. However, it is the par 5 eighteenth that offers a more classic test.

“At 656 yards it is a monster and, with water protecting the front of the green, it defies even the best player to hit the green in two.” The Address Montgomerie Dubai offers two very different seasons of golf. During winter, the golf course is over-seeded whilst the summer season has the course back to a full stand of Bermuda grass. The turf growth is vigorous during the summer resulting in a very challenging rough. tHe aCaDemY bY troon golF The Academy by Troon Golf, one of the finest teaching facilities in the world right here at The Address Montgomerie Dubai.

golf Dubai has a way of doing things. With year-round sunshine, world-class courses, unbeatable club facilities and frequent visits by the world’s top professionals – golf is no exception.

The nation is home to two major hub airports, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and also two leading airlines. It also has nine major sea ports, including Jebel Ali, the ninth largest container port in the world. The UAE is also a nation built on the power of connections, between seven emirates, and people of 200 different nationalities who meet, work together and form friendships every day. Because of this, the nation is convinced of the ability of Expo 2020 to spark collaboration and partnership amongst the international community to seek collective solutions for a beer future. The UAE has an established track record of successful participation in World Expos. The national pavilion from the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai is now a permanent fixture on the skyline of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi.

ConneCting minDS Creating tHe Future Expo 2020 Dubai’s theme is ‘Connecting Minds, Creating the Future’. It recognises that generating sustainable solutions to global problems demands collaboration across cultures, nations and regions. It is a reflection of the modern world: connected as never before, and changing with great speed. Today, the world’s biggest accommodation provider owns no hotels. The largest soware providers do not write the apps they sell. The number one retailer stocks no products and the most popular media organisation in the world creates no content. These companies have each recognised the value of sharing and collaboration, made possible by new technology. They empower people to say and do things differently; to connect with others, and to create something new. This what Expo 2020, its participants and visitors will explore. How, by connecting, collaborating and forming new partnerships, can we develop ideas and innovate in order to create a beer future?
