The temperature might be getting hot but golfers can still get into the swing of things at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club with their ‘Summer in the City’ promotions.
Running from May 15 to September 15, ADCGC have announced a series of special coaching deals that are available for everyone whatever your experience.
A three-hour lesson costs Dh999, which includes membership to the academy for one month and one green fee, while a five-hour class costs Dh1,599 (two month membership and two green fees). There is also a 10-hour class available costing Dh2,999, which includes three months academy membership and five green fees.
You can also play 18 holes of golf from Dh150 and nine holes from Dh99.
Even if you’re not a golfer, you can take advantage of their Summer Academy membership for Dh999. This includes unlimited use of their driving range, access to their tennis courts and swimming pool plus member discounts.
Previous years of the summer promotions have been a big success and Dave Taylor, head PGA professional at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club is confident this year will be no different.
“We hope to offer everyone a place to escape the heat, enjoy an active past time and an activity that doesn’t involve going to the mall. There is no better time to take advantage of our shaded driving range, air conditioned swing room and discount prices,” he said.
“Every year, this has been a very popular promotion for us with lots of golfers taking advantage of the offers at the academy, on the golf course and membership benefits.”
He added: “For the first time our promotion this year includes unlimited use of the driving range and includes green fees to allow golfers to play the course. This means all golfers, whether experienced or first time golfers, can learn, improve and play their best golf ever through the summer months all ready for the perfect Abu Dhabi golf season that starts at the end of September. As the only fully covered driving range in Abu Dhabi, there is no better place to practice in the shade, or in our air conditioned swing room.
And Taylor insists there’s plenty of reasons on why people should sign up.
“It can be hard to get out and enjoy sports during the hot summer months, but here at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club we have a fantastic area for you to play, learn and stay cool,” he said. “With fantastic discounts and lots of additional benefits there is no better time to start golf or improve your golf. Our expert team of welcoming and supportive PGA teaching professionals will help you with all your needs and show you why we are Abu Dhabi’s favourite golf academy.”

With summer approaching and temperatures soaring it’s a good time to head inside – at least until the sun goes down.
Located right on the Dubai Autodrome, the Park Inn is the perfect place to be part of all the Autodrome excitement and so much more.
The Autodrome has a full calendar running right up until June including: Thurs, May 17 – Roll Racing DXB (Main Straight); Mon, May 21 – Ramadan Challenge RD1 (Dubai Kartdrome); Mon, May 28 – Ramadan Challenge RD2 (Dubai Kartdrome) and Thurs, May 31 – Roll Racing DXB (Main Straight).
Formula DXB Single Seater Experience and Super Car Experiences also continue through summer.
Away from the track once Ramadan begins the Park Inn will be setting up a special Iftar tent where you can celebrate an authentic meal each night from sunset to 21:00 for just Dh89.
The menus at the Park Inn are carefully selected by their expert chefs focusing on flavor and fun, with special consideration given to nutrition so the Iftar is sure to be both delicious and healthy.
Once Ramadan is over the tent will then convert into World Cup central where you can watch all the action from Russia 2018 – with shisha available.
Or if you feel like hitting the course for a quick golfing-break the Golfers Arabian Delight package is available.
Starting from just AED 500 per night the package includes room-stay, breakfast, 18-holes at the nearby Arabian Ranches Golf Course and a 20% discount on Food and Beverage. Rental Clubs are available for an additional cost.
Discounted course rates are also available at the Els, Trump and Jumeirah golf estates.
If you want to refresh after your 18-holes there is a well-maintained pool area so you can keep in shape with a quick swim, plus the Park Inn offers an outstanding gym.
Or if you are looking for something different try the IMG Worlds of Adventure – Quencher, which includes room stay and a ticket to IMG Worlds of Adventure, the largest indoor theme park in the world, for just Dh429 per night.
So whatever you are after this Ramadan and summer – Iftar, golf, motor sports, or a World of Adventure – the Park Inn by Radisson at Motor City in the place to be.

Whether you’re a total beginner or seasoned runner, the whole family is encouraged to take part in the Cigna Park Run, which will feature events of varying distances – 2.5km or 5km on Saturday, May 5.
Jon Norris from event organisers Race ME said, “We’re very excited and happy to announce one of the first Park Run concepts here in Dubai sponsored by Cigna health insurance. It’s a free timed fun run in a Dubai park that the whole family can participate in and the first of several planned runs this year and more to follow through 2019”.
