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.
Dubai Hills Golf is a new championship golf course and centrepiece of a prestigious lifestyle community set in the heart of Dubai.
As well as the golf course the development plan includes a variety of residential villas, high-end shopping, fine dining, world-class hotels, and health and educational facilities.
The Course Carved out of the sandy desert Dubai Hills was designed with playability in mind and features wide contoured fairways and large undulating greens. The course design utilises the numerous valleys and lakes that were created along with bold bunkering to add a degree of challenge and drama.
The Desert Miracle was the name given to Emirates Golf Club when it became the first all-grass championship golf course in the Gulf region, way back in 1988.
At Emirates Majlis lush, rolling fairways lead to large fast greens with the surrounding desert meaning you’ll have plenty of chances to practise your sand play. Water comes into play on many holes including the testing par-three 7th, with its long carry, and the thrilling par-five 18th, where the approach comes in across a lake to a long, thin green in the shape of a bow tie.
Emirates Majlis is host to the Dubai Desert Classic whose former winners include Tiger Woods.
The design of the clubhouse reflects a Bedouin tented village with seven gleaming white concrete and glass structures, complemented by the off-course areas where desert flora and fauna flourish.
Jumeirah Golf Estates is home to Dubai’s most desirable residences and golf’s most prestigious destination. With World-Class Championship Courses and luxurious homes, Jumeirah Golf Estates sets a new standard in residential golf developments.
Jumeirah Golf Estates has brought together four legends of the game of golf Greg Norman (Earth, Fire & Wind), Vijay Singh (Water), Pete Dye (Wind) and Sergio Garcia (Wind). Their unmatched understanding of what makes an exceptional sporting venue has enabled them to design four incomparable golf experiences in Dubai.
The Earth course was the host of the inaugural Dubai World Championship in 2009 (Race to Dubai).
The Earth Course was inspired by the great parklands of Europe and North America. The course has an open layout with wide fairways and large sloping greens. The Signature Hole is the Par 5 18th with a rock lined stream positioned up the middle of the fairway leading to a dramatic final green.
The Els Course is traditional (desert) links style design, set on undulating slopes of native desert vegetation. Teasing doglegs and cavernous pot bunkers combined with a surprising amount of wind mean the course is a real challenge at 7,538 yards.
However, there are four sets of tees to make the course playable for golfers of all abilities. The Els Club also boasts the Butch Harmon School of Golf.
Trump Golf Dubai (opens February 2017) provides a one-of-a-kind experience for golfers of all skill levels.
Routed on over 500 acres and forged from what was previously flat and barren desert, Trump Golf Dubai has become a pre-eminent destination in the golf world. Hanse Golf Course Design, led by golf architect Gil Hanse and his partner Jim Wagner, utilized a massive and cavernous barranca as the backbone of the layout.
As players proceed through the course, the barranca strategically interacts with the holes providing elevation change, profound views and many exciting golf shots.
The rumpled fairways, inspired by the beautiful and natural desert contours, took shape on top of the pure, endemic red sand. The juxtaposition of rustic barranca and formal revetted bunkering provides an impressive look and a unique combination of hazards.
Gusty wind, a wide variety of vegetation and an abundance of exposed sand all require deliberate shot making in order to score. Rare to desert golf is the handful of holes which incorporate formidable water hazards encouraging strategic play off the tee and on approach shots.
Further enhancing this exquisite course is the 9-hole, par 3 Academy Course, allowing golfers access to their perfect game. Additionally, a world-class putting, chipping and practice facility, as well as our driving range with LED lighting, allows for optimal play well into the night.
