Dubai Creek Golf Club

The par 71 course that measures 6,967 yards is a memorable journey from the first tee to the 18th green. The fairways are demarcated by mounds, date and palm trees and by water. Apart from the Creek, which comes into play on at least four holes, several artificial lakes add beauty and difficulty to various holes.

The length of the tee helps with the accuracy and the approach shots as most of the greens are multi-tiered with subtle borrows.

The Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club course sets up for a thrilling final with its two par 4 closing holes. The 17th and 18th have the Creek guarding the entire left side of the fairway. While the 17thcan still be conquered with some smart play, the 18th requires mandatory cerebral involvement on every shot.

Golf doesn’t end at sunset at Dubai Creek as the feature packed Par 3 course, the facilities allow golfers to continue playing till late night.

The Creek also offers golfers a systematic teaching program to improve their skills at the first Golf Academy in the Region.

Jumeirah Golf Estates Dubai

Fire By Greg Norman – Fire has a wide variety of captivating flora. Its topography creates a challenging level of play. The Fire course demands a well-thought-out strategy. Going directly at the flag may not always be the best approach, which gives Fire a strong sense of classic links-style play.

Earth By Greg Norman–Earth has a wonderful flora, rolling terrain and rushing water. These natural components provide different angles and changing perspectives from each tee. Water features are also a factor when lining up the next shot, forcing a careful drive and constant consideration of ball carry.

The Montgomerie Course Dubai

The course provides the player with “links land” style fairways that challenge and intrigue all levels of players.

One of the signature holes is the Par 5 fourth, dubbed the Snake hole for its saddleback fairway which doglegs towards the green with two bunkers behind forming the eyes of the snake. The Par 5 ninth, with the water down the left, is a tough finish to the opening half. The Par 3 thirteen, a hole designed in the shape of the UAE, boasts a 360 degree teeing area around an island fairway and green, allowing for a completely different golf hole to be played every time. However, it is the Par 5 eighteen that offers a more classic test. At 656 yards it is a monster with water protecting the front of the green, it defies even the best player to hit the green in two.

The Montgomerie course offers two different seasons of golf. During winter, the golf course is over – seeded while the summer season has the course back to a full stand of Bermuda grass. The turf growth is vigorous during the summer resulting in a very challenging rough.
