The recently concluded 2017 DP World Tour Championship – the Race to Dubai’s grand final – threw up high drama and spellbinding golf in equal measures and amateur golfers in the region can follow in the footsteps of the European Tour’s finest players by taking up a membership for 2018 at Jumeirah Golf Estates.
With two Championship calibre courses, newly opened Flood-lit Practice Facilities, the region’s only European Tour Performance Institute (2016 Best Academy in the Middle East), state of the art fitness centre, and flood lit tennis academy, Jumeirah Golf Estates is a great call for any golfer looking for a well-rounded club atmosphere.
Members definitely won’t go hungry as the club provides an array of food and beverage options with Sports Bar at JGE, Flame Tree Restaurant & Grill, and Fresca Café, and there are numerous club events throughout the year to keep members and their guests active.
Inspired by the great parkland courses of Europe and North America, Earth, home to the DP World Tour Championship, 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 four holes play alongside or over water culminating in a meandering creek running the full length of the final hole.
Framed by a wide variety of captivating flora, carefully selected to reflect the overall theme and to enhance its natural setting, Fire is in complete harmony with its surroundings. The undulating topography, with its considerable protrusions, creates a more challenging level of play. Rustic, and so visually stunning as to captivate even those who do not golf, the Fire course demands a well-thought-out strategy.
Going directly at the flag may not always be the best approach, which gives Fire a strong sense of classic links-style play.
Both courses provide some of the region’s most outstanding golf experiences, allowing members an alternating challenge on a weekly basis.
