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.
The visionary master plan of Leisurecorp-owned Jumeirah Golf Estates is to create the world’s premier golf destination at the centre of a luxury residential golf community. Four courses are planned, Fire, Earth, Water and Wind which will form part of a massive leisure and real estate facility nine times the size of London’s Hyde Park.
Few people experienced Greg Norman’s Earth course, even though the layout was fully grassed in April 2008. In January 2009, a handful of Pros including Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Darren Clarke were invited to play the last four holes of the Earth course, described by Norman as “the most challenging mile in golf”. Since then, the Earth course was closed for play, waiting for its curtain call at the inaugural Dubai World Championship in November 2009.
We’re led to believe that never before has a course been closed to the public for so long, simply waiting for its debut. The theory being that the Earth course would not only look and feel established but also it would boast a level of conditioning which most of the top pros had never experienced before.
