Venue: European Tour – Dubai Desert Classic
Dubai Creek is a memorable journey from the first tee to the 18th green with superbly manicured, undulating fairways fringed with water and dotted with date and palm trees.
Multiple tees ensure golfers of all calibres enjoy the course. While length of the tee helps, the premium is certainly on accuracy, especially with the approach shots as most of the greens are multi-tiered with subtle borrows.
Dubai Creek’s 18th in particular requires intelligent play on every shot. There is water on the left and a long bunker on the right, beyond which is water again. A good drive will still leave you with a long iron into the tiered and sloping green, guarded by more water.
Dubai Creek also features a par-three course, a driving range and practice facilities, all of which are all floodlit to allow play late into the night.
