Sponsored: From Santa Claus and bouncy castles to live entertainment and sophisticated set menus…

The festive season is in full swing and if you’re looking for somewhere to spend the big day then Jumeirah Golf Estates has you covered.

The big man himself will be making an appearance at Earth Terrace for the Christmas Day Family Brunch, where he’ll be loading up on all of the traditional favourites.

You too will be able to tuck into turkey and all the trimmings at the festive buffet, though shaking of the belly like a bowlful of jelly is entirely optional.

There’ll also be a bouncy castle, as well as face painting and live family friendly entertainment for little ones that managed to avoid the naughty list.

The celebrations will tee off at 12.30pm, costing Dhs290 for soft drinks, Dhs445 for house beverages and Dhs135 for kids.

If you’re after something more sophisticated this Yuletide, then Chef Silvena will be whipping up a stunning set menu at Nassau, the country club’s new elegant dining oasis.

From 12.30pm onwards, the chef will be plating up a menu, inspired by eclectic Mediterranean dishes, for a twist on tradition that will make you forget all about the soggy sprouts of Christmases past.

Kids will also have access to the incredible Christmas day activities at the Fire Terrace.

The four-course set menu costs Dhs245 per person, with an additional Dhs90 for soft drinks and Dhs200 extra for house beverages.

Nassau and its Fire Terrace will also be throwing open their doors on New Year’s Eve for one final hurrah before the resolutions set in.

See in 2020 with an elegant dinner at the cosy venue, with a decedent set menu featuring smoked salmon terrine, grilled wagyu tenderloin steak, roasted cherry tomato risotto with parmesan crisps and soft chocolate and dolce de leche s’more cake.

The fun starts at 7pm until 3am, with live entertainment to see you into the new decade.

The dinner costs Dhs185 for kids, Dhs425 for soft drinks, Dhs725 for house beverages and Dhs845 for bubbles, with premium bubbles costing Dhs450 extra.

It’s time to putt your glad rags on…
