A native of England, Rod moved to Dubai in 1987 to open and manage the world-renowned Emirates Golf Club, soon to be followed by the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and the Nad Al Sheba Golf Club. These three impressive clubs united to form Dubai Golf, of which Rod was managing director until his semi-retirement in 2010. He continues to live in Dubai.

Having been involved as an advisor on most of the other golf developments in the country, Rod is known locally as 'Mister Golf'. He was an early pioneer of commercial management in golf clubs, was integral in establishing Dubai as a golf tourism destination, and was directly involved in the establishment of the Dubai Desert Classic as one of the most popular tournaments on the European PGA Tour.

Rod's knowledge of the region, and especially its golfing and cultural history, is second to none. He has just completed writing the history of Emirates Golf Club - which will celebrate its 25th Anniversary in March 2013. His next writing project is a history of the Dubai Desert Classic, which will celebrate its 25th year in 2014.

I have the contacts, knowledge, and experience to ensure that your Exclusively Dubai golfing experience is second-to-none. Book with Exclusively Dubai and appreciate the insider access that only we can provide.

Our trip to Dubai was a once in a lifetime experience! It is a beautiful place which offers so much; some of the top golf courses in the world, unbelievable shopping and dining experiences, and the people are fantastic! We felt very comfortable exploring Dubai and all it has to offer. Rod Bogg’s knowledge and personal contacts gave us access to people and areas that are not accessible to other tour operators. I would highly recommend a trip to Dubai . Of all the places we have traveled all over the world, Dubai will always hold a special place in our hearts.
