The Els Club
Drawing inspiration from Ernie Els lifelong love of links golf, we set about recreating at the Els Club Dubai some of these design features into a desert landscape. Stretching 7,538 yards with four sets of tees allowing players a selection of differing lengths from which to play, The Els Club has set a new benchmark for golf in Dubai since March 2008. The course offer players a challenging round accompanied by all the essential facilities that extend beyond the immaculate fairways and greens. The greenside protection system consists of sculpted bunkers, grassy swales and imaginatively designed greens featuring fine-textured Bermuda grass that are conducive to smooth, fast putting surfaces all year round. Extensive use of dunes, sandy waste areas and native grasses and vegetation between wide fairways, along with a classic style of bunkering, add to the links effect.
