5 golf deals to get a hold of this summer
With Golf being one of the latest additions to the Olympics this summer, it’s safe to say the sport is only going to increase in popularity. And let’s face it: most of the important people in your office play Golf. The higher-ups, the decision-makers, the men who write your pay-check. Your father-in-law probably plays it as well. So if you ever want to get in with this group of people it’s never a bad time to pick up the game. It also helps that it’s incredibly good fun and that the entirety of the UAE seems to be catered towards decreasing your handicap and turning you into the next Rory McIlroy.
Here are the 5 best Golf deals available this summer guaranteed to get your nine-iron into action:
