2017 Arabian Gulf & Emirates Golf Cruise Vacation by PerryGolf

2017 Arabian Gulf & Emirates Golf Cruise
Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Qatar & Bahrain on board Azamara Journey

10 Nights | 5 Rounds | Dubai - Dubai | 14 - 24 November 2017

PerryGolf is proud to again partner with Azamara Club Cruises for a fabulous golf voyage onboard the outstanding 690 guest Azamara Journey around the alluring and exotic Arabian Peninsula.

This region offers incredible history, culture, food, and shopping, and will deliver a truly once in a lifetime experience to guests fortunate enough to participate.  Our embarkation and disembarkation port of Dubai also offers easy air access with nonstop service from many cities of the world. 

Experience Dubai’s over-the-top opulence at the Burj Al Arab hotel and Gold Souk. In Khasab, take a dhow ride deep into the fjords of the Musandam Peninsula. In Muscat, visit old town bazaars, sip tea at the elegant Al Bustan Palace Hotel, and head to the desert for off-road fun. Visit old town souks and see rare oryx in a wildlife park in Bahrain, and learn the ancient sport of falconry in Qatar. In Abu Dhabi, don’t miss Sheikh Zayed Mosque, an astounding monument that rivals the Taj Mahal. You’ll be impressed by three new museums opening in 2015-2016: the Louvre, Guggenheim, and Zayed National Museum.

Our golf program will also delight.  This region boasts some of the finest golf facilities in the world, with outstanding layouts and the highest of service levels.  Our planned lineup includes Doha Golf Club, annual host of the European Tour’s Qatar Masters, the Greg Norman designed Almouj Golf Club in Oman, the stunning beachfront Saadiyat Beach Golf Club in Abu Dhabi, the private Royal Golf Club in Bahrain, and the Majlis Course of Emirates Golf Club in Dubai, annual host venue to the European Tour’s Dubai Desert Classic.

Azamara Club Cruises Destination Immersion itinerary offers various overnights and late evenings in port assuring  that you will be able to enjoy the allure of the various ports by evening, to experience the varied and exotic cultures at each of our destinations.

Back on board you will be able to enjoy the facilities of the stunningly upgraded Azamara Journey, in the company of a PerryGolf guest list which typically brings together like-minded individuals sharing a love of golf. Inevitably many new friendships are formed. Many guests are golfing couples but an equal number are golfers travelling with a non-golfing spouse. The latter are also exceptionally well catered for as, in addition to the fabulous onboard facilities, a wide selection of Azamara Land Discoveries® are offered in each port. The itinerary also allows for some relaxing “sea time” under blue Arabian skies.

On board, our guests are absolutely spoiled. Azamara Journey is small enough to provide a most intimate experience and nimble enough to access smaller ports, but large enough to provide a great choice of outstanding dining and bars; the ship also offers an exceptional full service spa, and features excellent and varied evening entertainment. In addition to all “normal” cruise features, Azamara Club Cruises include all soft drinks, specialty coffees, boutique daily wines, and a choice of select standard beers and cocktails within the cruise fare, plus all gratuities to create a thoroughly all-inclusive cruise experience. Just read what our past guests say. We know you will love it!

Dubai  may already be mistaken for a movie set featuring a futuristic metropolis, and even greater plans are in the works. Located in the middle of the desert where almost nothing existed 20 years ago, there are so many building projects that foreign construction crews vastly outnumber citizens. Everything is the biggest, tallest, and the first of its kind, including manmade islands shaped like palm trees and the world’s first underwater hotel.  It’s a striking collection of styles, including modern interpretations of ancient architecture.  Consider a visit to the top of Burj Khalifa or the Souk Al Bahar, an Arabesque shopping mall located in the heart of the prestigious Downtown Burj Khalifa, on the Old Town Island. 

Enjoy it on your own arrangements or via Azamara Land Discoveries®

GOLF: Emirates Golf Club, Majlis Course is annual home to the European Tour’s Dubai Desert Classic, and enjoys a worthy reputation worldwide as an excellent layour. The course features hundreds of indigenous species of flora and fauna, beautifully complemented by meandering fairways and seven fresh and saltwater lakes.  The Majlis which was the first grass course in the Middle East takes its name from the Arabic word for 'meeting place'. One of the most prominent features on the course is the Majlis building itself positioned between the 8th and 9th holes and a Dubai landmark since 1988.

Khasab is the capital city of the Musandam peninsula located on the coast of the Straight of Hormuz.  It was built by the Portuguese as a strategic trading port in the early 1600s and was virtually unreachable by land for centuries until a modern coastal road was constructed.  It is now a popular vacation destination especially amongst Emiratis and is renowned as “the Norway of Arabia” for its beautiful fjords and massive cliffs, which you can see up close and personal in a dhow cruise or kayak (keep an eye out for dolphins!).  Other scenic outdoor activities include city tours, Jeep safari rides to Jebel Harim, scuba diving amongst rich marine life, and mountain treks for wonderful views over the Gulf of Arabia and the Gulf of Oman.

Muscat has a longstanding relationship with the sea, its name indeed meaning “safe anchorage” in Arabic.  From its prominence as a trading port in the first century, to its importance as a modern-day commercial center, this elegant town with fine houses has an ocean of things to discover.  Take a stroll along the Corniche and enjoy sweeping views and some of the best shopping in the city at the Mutrah Souq.  The colorful maze-like marketplace is filled with treasures like mother of pearl jewelry and traditional Omani handicrafts such as intricately designed shoulder bags and wooden carvings.   Moving uptown, be sure to visit the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. The third largest in the world, it features a massive Swarovski crystal chandelier with over 600,000 crystals and a hand-woven prayer rug with more than 1.7 billion knots. Now that’s a rug knot to be forgotten!

GOLF: Almouj Golf Club was designed by Greg Norman, who has captured the essence of the surrounding environment and enhanced it to produce a delightful links style course that runs alongside over two kilometers of beach. Norman and his design team were mindful of maintaining the panorama of the breathtaking views of the Sea of Oman ocean and the spectacular vista of the Hajar Mountains which on a clear day you almost feel as if you can touch.

Al Manamah is one of the Arabian Gulf’s important trading centers, the port of Al Manamah (or Manama as it is often referred to) is the capital of Bahrain and home to a very diverse population, with Portuguese, Middle Eastern, and British influences evident throughout the centuries. It’s also home to one of the largest mosques in the world, the Al-Fateh Mosque, the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bahrain Fort with excavations that date back to 3000 BC, and the Tree of Life, a famed lone tree that thrives in the middle of a dry desert, making it a complete mystery to modern science.

Outdoor activities here include dolphin watching, scuba and pearl diving, and bird watching; and with alcohol permitted in Bahrain, Al Manamah—and its accompanying nightlife—is a popular destination for locals and expats alike.

Port Explorer Guide – Al Manamah

GOLF: Royal Golf Club Bahrain was designed by Colin Montgomerie and hosted the European Tour’s inaugural Volvo Golf Champions tournament in January 2011.  The Montgomerie championship course offers a unique blend of links and desert golf, taking advantage of Bahrain’s natural rough desert terrain and combining it with vast manmade lakes. The desert feel is retained through the use of sandy waste bunkers and the attractive indigenous vegetation and grasses used in the landscaping. The rolling links-style fairways and undulating greens are immaculately maintained.

Doha is the capital of Qatar, a bustling and cosmopolitan city which has undergone rapid economic expansion, as evident by stunning new buildings, resorts, and sporting venues, not to mention fantastic shopping malls and revitalized souqs. One of Doha’s premier highlights is the waterfront promenade Al-Corniche, showcasing Doha Bay, city skyscrapers, and Palm Tree Island.  In its efforts to become a regional hub of culture, Doha has also built a number of museums such as the Museum of Islamic Art. In addition to featuring Islamic art from three continents spanning 1,400 years and being designed by renowned architect I.M. Pei, it’s also home to the restaurant IDAM by legendary chef Alain Ducasse.

Port Explorer Guide – Doha

GOLF:  Doha Golf Club is the proud home of the European Tour’s annual Commercial Bank Qatar Masters. Nothing reflects the natural beauty and diverse landscape of Qatar more than Doha Golf Club.  Designed by Peter Harradine and unveiled in 1997, the golf course provides a variety of challenges that appeal to both the novice golfer and the seasoned professional.  Eight strategically positioned lakes, many giant cacti, numerous imposing limestone rock formations and an abundance of lush and lengthy green fairways present a startling contrast to the desert that lies beyond.

It is home to the seat of government, the Al Nahyan royal family, and a population of approximately 20% Emirati citizens and 80% expats. Its commitment to local culture and heritage, combined with international influences, is what makes Abu Dhabi an intriguing, exciting, and hospitable mix of new and old.
