The Els Club Dubai - Golf course information & golf holiday offers
Ernie Els, a passionate fan of the great links courses of the United Kingdom, where he has even won two of his four major championships, created in 2008 the Els Club Dubai where he recreated some of these characteristics of British courses in a desert landscape. Thus was born a “desert links”, which was quickly acclaimed by professionals from the media world. The course is laid out in two nine-hole out-and-back loops over 6,800 metres and four sets of tees, giving players a choice of different lengths from which to play. The course offers players a challenging course, with pleasant undulations and strong elevation changes for visual and strategic interest. The vast arrangement of sandy waste areas and native grasses and vegetation between the wide fairways, along with a classic bunkering style, contribute to the links effect. However, it adds large water hazards on the 7th and 15th holes. Fabulous facilities include a bar, restaurant, 450 yard driving range, 2 short game greens and 3 practice bunkers.
