The Els Club Dubai Sports City

Dubai Sports City



The Els Club Dubai, which is part of Dubai Sports City, was voted ‘best new international course’ by the prestigious US magazine, Links, when it opened in 2008. It is described by the team at Ernie Els Design as a ‘desert links’, featuring pleasing undulations and elevation changes for visual and strategic interest. 

Extensive use of sandy waste areas and of native grasses and vegetation between wide fairways, along with a classic style of bunkering, add to the links aesthetic. The perfectly manicured playing surfaces can be enjoyed all year round and that, along with exceptional practice facilities, has made the club a popular destination for tour pros.
