The first Links golf course in the Middle East region. The first designed by Kyle Phillips, one of the world’s leading golf course designers. The first opportunity to experience the unique traditions of the game. An eighteen-hole course, a nine-hole academy course, clubhouse, golf academy and floodlit practice facilities, set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf—the course combines unparalleled visual glory with the thrill of golf’s ultimate test.

Wow, what a special course this is. This is a true links, great venue, great design in top condition. The service from all members of staff is also top notch. If there was space for grandstands etc I think this would host the European tour event but there isn't, such a shame as this is a superb venue. If you... More

The course is beautiful and very challenging. We played at the twilight rate and finished in 3h 20m and we aren't that good. the food in the clubhouse was delicious and everybody was very nice. We rented a car and drove from Dubai which was a very easy drive. Highly recommended

We could see much of this attractive links course from our hotel balcony so it seemed reasonable to pop into the club house for a late afternoon lager.

I and my wife played here twice in March, were both reasonable golfers and really enjoy playing here, we were not disappointed with Yas - expensive but worth it, I have to say Kyle Phillips design did a great job here. We've played Kingsbarns before (loved that course too) and many other links courses in Scotland and Ireland this is... More

After playing golf, went to the clubhouse (Hickorys) for something to eat. Setting is amazing, food is good but service is slow. Need to improve the speed of service as it definitely lets them down. Flies are an issue if sitting outside.

Amazing course, as if you play in Scotland, except for rain and the cold. Stunning lay out, never flat, lots of bunkers, superfast greens, manicured fairways, friendly staff, all there. Indoor and outdoor restaurant with extensive menus, free water on each hole, shops for food and beverages on 3 holes, can order from the cart in advance, love these gadgets.... More
