Sports fans looking for property for sale in Dubai may be interested to learn of a development that could boost the emirate's position as a premiere golf destination.

The Dubai Sports Council has joined forces with the Dubai World Championship - the climax of the Race to Dubai competition - in order to boost the sport's profile in the country, Gulf News reports.

One month remains before the tournament commences and the move will bring many benefits to the region, according to Dr Ahmad Al Sharif, secretary general of Dubai Sports Council.

Dr Al Sharif said the championship is an important global event, both for the European Tour and for sport in general.

"It is also very important for Dubai on many levels whether they be generating tourism revenue or additional economic benefits," he remarked.

Golfing enthusiasts looking for property for sale in Dubai may also be tempted to take a few rounds at the Tiger Woods Dubai golf course and resort, which was designed by the world champion himself.
