DP World Tour Championship … Golf …

On Friday last week Perry and I headed out for breakfast with Brian down at the Yacht Club … before we all headed on over to the DP World Golf Championship at the Jebel Ali Golf Course … breakfast was good and the weather was wonderful for sitting outside … really looking forward to the next few months now … it’s so much more pleasant and less sweaty sitting outside …

Once we got to the Golf Course we made our way to the main “Clubhouse” area and found a map of the course to get our bearings … and decide where to head too … Perry and Brian had been last year so they had an idea of where they wanted to go …

We stopped by this stand where you could get yourself on the front page of the 7Days news paper … well … sort of …

And after I told them to look abit more happy this is what I got …

The bean bag area … the place to veg out in the sun and watch the game on the big screen … a good idea for families with little ones …

Some pretty good views were to be had looking back up towards Dubai and the Marina area …We started at the 6th hole for a bit … managing to find a spot under the shade of a tree to sit down for a while … before going for a wander around some of the other holes …

We stopped again by the 13th hole where there wasn’t any shade to be had whatsoever … but we still settled down on a grassy patch for 20mins or so …

By this point I was over heating (I’m not built for sunbathing), Perry and Brian were getting peckish … so we decided to mosey on down to the 17th hole where there was a Left Bank bar/restaurant set up overlooking the Green …

We had a couple pints of Tiger Beer, some Mini Sliders (Burgers), Buckets of Chips and a Salad … while enjoying the shaded view of the game … we went to take a seat at the grandstand and I left the guys there to go get us all some ice cream … but the queue was so long by the time I started heading back towards them they were coming down the steps claiming the games were nearly finished … apparently there were only another 4-5 pairs left to play … and they wanted to leave before it got too busy at the exit …

I’ve never been a huge golfing fan … and can barely follow a game … have no idea who the players are and really just went along to enjoy a day out and the company … to be honest it was probably a good thing we headed back when we did … by the time we got home Perry and I were both lagging abit … our energy zapped by a day out in the sun (there really wasn’t enough shade around) …

In either case we had all the best intentions to go back on the Saturday afternoon … but after both of us went to the Dr’s on Saturday (Perry for his Eczema and me to see the ENT for my headaches) … we weren’t feeling up for it …

On a side note … Having gone to see the ENT Dr about repeated nauseating headaches he thought it best to carry out tests that involved shaking my head around alot … neadless to say I didn’t feel too well after that and needed to lie down …

Overall we had a great day out at the Golf on Friday … and whilst I’m still not sure what happened … it was good fun …

Till next time …
