Jumeirah Golf Estates – Earth Course
Par 72 | 7706 Yards
Inspired by the great parkland courses of Europe and North America, Earth is home to the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai sets the scene for an incredible experience. The rolling fairways, brilliant white bunkering and deep red ochre landscape are framed by a plethora of trees and shrubs making each hole picture perfect. The abundance of nature is reflected in the many lakes throughout the experience which are home to a myriad of wildlife. The journey is concluded where the last 4 holes play alongside or over water culminating in a meandering creek running the full length of the final hole.
Double Open Champion Greg Norman designed the Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates and it’s his first Middle Eastern course design to open for play. The Earth course is also the first course to have been built specifically for a championship and then unveiled as the first tee shot was hit at that championship.
Emirates Golf Estates- Majlis Course
Par 72 | 7301 yards
Designed by Florida-based course architect Karl Litten, the original 18 holes were built in and around the dunes of a beautiful site on the edge of the city of Dubai, donated by His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on whose instructions the desert flora was maintained in its natural state.
The Majlis course has developed a worthy reputation worldwide as a testing layout for even the best golfers. The course features hundreds of indigenous species of flora and fauna, beautifully complemented by meandering fairways and seven fresh and saltwater lakes.
The Majlis, the first grass course in the Middle East, takes its name from the Arabic word for ‘meeting place’. One of the most prominent features on the course is the Majlis building itself positioned between the 8th and 9th holes and a Dubai landmark since 1988.
