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.
Jebel Ali is a stunning 9-hole course which until recently played host to the “Shoot-out” curtain raiser to the Dubai Desert Classic.
Arranged on different elevations, the course features a salt-water lake that comes into play on five holes. Each hole is uniquely landscaped with exotic trees, shrubs and panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf. Peacock, guinea fowl, and partridges roam free on the perfectly manicured Bermuda grass greens and fairways.
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.
