Emirates (Majalis) - The flagship course at Emirates Golf Club, The Majlis championship course is a challenging par 72, 7,301-yard layout. Designed by Florida-based course architect Karl Litten, the original 18 holes were built in and around the dunes of a beautiful site on the edge of the city of Dubai, donated by His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on whose instructions the desert flora was maintained in its natural state. The Majlis, the first grass course in the Middle East, takes its name from the Arabic word for 'meeting place'. One of the most prominent features on the course is the Majlis building itself positioned between the 8th and 9th holes and a Dubai landmark since 1988. Within a month of opening the most important regional golf tournament - the Pan-Arab - was taking place on the newly named Majlis course. The Club's international recognition was confirmed in 1989 with its first European Tour event, the Dubai Desert Classic. Twenty four years later, this tournament reaches hundreds of millions of TV screens around the world, and most of the world's top players, including Tiger Woods and Ernie Els, have taken part in what is one of the European PGA Tour's top events. Arguably the most challenging hole on the course is the par 4, dogleg 8th. Stroke index 3 and playing a full 434 yards, it has the unusual distinction of playing up-hill and requires a long, well directed drive to leave a reasonable second shot to its small, undulating green where the dreaded 3-putt is always a threat.
Els Club - This Ernie Els signature golf course is a ‘desert links’ with a natural look and feel; in essence, a combination of a links golf course and traditional ‘classical era’ design. It features broad and gently rolling fairways, steep greenside bunkers, grassy swales and imaginatively designed greens. The putting surfaces are fine-textured Bermuda grass, conducive to maintaining smooth, fast greens that are a joy to putt on all year round. The course measures 7,538 yards from the tips, although in all there are five sets of tees allowing players of all standards a selection of different lengths in order to enjoy this great course to the full. “We really couldn’t be more proud of the golf course,” says Ernie. “Since it opened in 2007 it’s become a favourite among local and international golfers. The all-year round conditioning of the course has by general consensus set a new benchmark for golf in this region. The crisp, clean playing surfaces are literally Augusta-like in quality, which is why many European Tour players make The Els Club Dubai a go-to destination. “This really is a 5-star experience every step of the way and the clubhouse is as good as I’ve seen anywhere; it’s all very classy, very comfortable and not pretentious or overly formal in any way. There are also some tasteful hints of my beautiful homeland, South Africa. For me The Els Club Dubai feels like a home from home. I know whenever I go there my clubs are safely stored in Locker No.1 so I’m all set for a game.”
Jumeriah Estates (Earth Course) - Jumeirah Golf Estates is arguably one of the world’s most prestigious residential golf developments comprising a collection of individually designed homes set amidst a truly breathtaking landscape and enclosed within a secure gated community. Jumeirah Golf Estates will offer four distinctive districts which are being created to offer luxurious villa residences, many with views over Greg Norman’s Earth and Fire Championship courses. Eco-friendly and environmentally-sound principles have been adopted in the Estate’s development. The Clubhouse presents a range of the finest offerings and facilities for golf, sports and leisure enthusiasts. Adjacent to the golf and tennis academies, the 131,00 sqft Clubhouse offers a variety of sports and leisure services.
Inspired by the great parkland courses of Europe and North America, Earth is home to the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai sets the scene for an incredible experience. The rolling fairways, brilliant white bunkering and deep red ochre landscape are framed by a plethora of trees and shrubs making each hole picture perfect. The abundance of nature is reflected in the many lakes throughout the experience which are home to a myriad of wildlife. The journey is concluded where the last 4 holes play alongside or over water culminating in a meandering creek running the full length of the final hole.
Trump Dubai - The Championship-style, 18-hole golf course designed by world-renowned architect Gil Hanse, provides a one-of-a-kind experience for golfers of all skill levels. Further enhancing this exquisite course is the 9-hole, par 3 Academy Course, allowing golfers access to their perfect game. Additionally, our world-class putting, chipping and practice facility, as well as our driving range with LED lighting, allows for optimal play well into the night. Routed on over 500 acres and forged from what was previously flat and barren desert, Trump International Golf Club, Dubai has become a pre-eminent destination in the golf world. Aspects of the design blended with the desert climate work in cohesion to provide a special golf experience and a true test of the game. The many layers of the course are key to developing play strategy and increasingly unveil themselves as golfer’s progress through all 18 holes. 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 routing. 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 decisions 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. While the course is easily a superb test for the advanced player, it is also navigable for golfers of all skill levels with an expansive multi-tee system. Trump International Golf Club, Dubai offers an unparalleled golf experience never seen before in the Middle East.
Yas Links - The first Links golf course in the Middle East region. The first designed by Kyle Phillips, one of the world’s leading golf course designers. The first opportunity to experience the unique traditions of the game. An eighteen-hole course, a nine-hole academy course, clubhouse, golf academy and floodlit practice facilities, set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf—the course combines unparalleled visual glory with the thrill of golf’s ultimate test. Yas Links presents the kind of challenges golfers the world over dream about. A course that will test professionals, enthrall amateurs and excite beginners. A course that honours the traditions of the game, demands respect, yet offers so much. A course that celebrates the best in Links design, utilizes the unique weather conditions and complements its natural surroundings. A course that blends the latest in techniques and technology with the timeless traditions of the game. A course that is ready to be played, enjoyed and discovered by you. Unique in style, in design, in character, with a personality derived from nature, location and history…this is a golfing challenge for the purist, a truly authentic adventure of the senses.
