Mini golf enthusiasts can sign up to an eight-week course for Dhs750. The lessons are an hour long each week and teach little golf fans the basics from putting and driving (that's off the tee and not in a car) to golf etiquette. Plus if they fancy testing out their skills they can sign up to various tournaments when they are ready.
