Golf is deceptively simple and endlessly complicated
Arnold Palmer is regarded by some as the best golf player in history. We are sure Arnold Palmer would have been delighted with the array of golf clubs that Dubai has to provide. Have a look at a few of them:
Emirates Golf Club
The Majlis Championship course is a challenging par 72, 7200-yard course. It is sculptured around the tall desert dunes. The Majlis was the very first grass course in the Middle East. It derives its name from the Arabic language in which Majlis means Meeting Place.
The 8th hole is one of the most challenging holes. 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 well protected green.
The Montgomerie, Dubai’s championship golf course was designed by Colin Montgomerie in association with Desmond Muirhead. The course covers 265 acres which consist of 123 acres of turf, 49 acres of man-made lakes (a total of 14 lakes), and 93 acres of landscaped gardens and is scattered with 81 large bunkers.
The course provides the player with undulating “links land” style fairways with generous landing areas which challenge and intrigue all levels of player. Although large in size, the greens can be very misleading, especially as they are consistently rolling above 9.5 feet.
Jebel Ali Golf Resort
This resort has a 9-hole, par 36, championship. It is situated within the peaceful grounds of the resort. The Jebel Ali Golf Resort was designed by Peter Harradine. It first opened in 1998. This resort proudly boasts of its ability to hold superior players. It has hosted the world’s best players as a part of the European PGA Tour event, the Dubai Desert Classic; it was a part of the curtain raiser.
Every hole in this golf course is exotically landscaped with the most beautiful and unique trees, shrubs and the natural desert flora. The course also has a saltwater lake which comes into play during five holes. The place has exotic wooden gazebos and the views of the Arabian Gulf. Also, the peacocks which roam freely in the resort have their own mesmerizing charm.
