Situated on the shores of Saadiyat Island, and nestled amongst the protected sand dunes, is the picturesque Saadiyat Beach Golf Club. Designed by golf legend Gary Player, this championship golf course was built with strict environmental guidelines and sensitivity to the preservation of the rare hawksbill turtle. As the Arabian Gulf's first beachfront course, it provides unique golf experiences, suitable for all player levels.

Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai

 


Jumeirah Golf Estates is set amidst a prestigious residential golf community located twenty-five minutes from Dubai Marina. It's undoubtedly one of the Middle East's most iconic golf clubs and home to two world-class Greg Norman-designed golf courses Fire & Earth. We recommend playing the Earth course, as it's a tournament course that hosts the DP World Tour Championship & Race to Dubai. This annual event draws a big expat crowd who come out to watch the European Tour season-ending finale. With this year's event taking place from 20 to 23 November, the course, well-manicured all year round, is especially immaculate at this time. Past winners of the event include Lee Westwood, Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Henrik Stenson. If you're not a seasoned golfer, don't worry, as the course boasts both wide fairways and several tee boxes designed for various skill levels. Earth is a distinctive course with its variations in gradient, making uphill and downhill shots the ultimate test for any keen golfer's aptitude.
