If you have an appetite for a first-class golfing experience combined with 5-star service and notable prestige from Dubai’s finest golfing destination, The Els Club is for you.
Those who appreciate life’s finest pleasures will embrace this true sporting gem which has been sensationally designed by US Open and the Open Championship winner Ernie Els.
Ernie Els has a passion for the great links courses of the UK, where he has won two of his 4 major championships, and in creating the Els Club Dubai he set about recreating some of these design features in a desert landscape.
Thus a 'desert links' was born, one that was quickly named ‘best new international course’ by the prestigious US magazine, Links.
Stretching 7,538 yards with four sets of tees, allowing players a selection of differing lengths from which to play, The Els Club sets new benchmarks for golf in Dubai.
The course offers players a challenging round, accompanied by all the essential facilities that extend beyond the immaculate fairways and greens.
The course features pleasing undulations and strong 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 effect. The perfectly manicured playing surfaces can be enjoyed 365 days of the year.

At 60,000 sq ft and with no expense spared, this Mediterranean masterpiece is the perfect complement to the high standards already set by one of the most acclaimed courses in the region.
