Dubai Hills Golf Club locates in the center of Dubai City, the United Arab Emirates. It was built in 2018 and became the latest golf course added to the world-class golf club collection of Dubai.
Dubai Hills Golf Club is an 18-hole par 72 course built on a lush and tranquil landscape. It has a dramatic view over the city skylines, including the Burj Khalifa – the largest building in the world. This is said to be a golf course for golfers of all skill levels, both amateurs and professionals.
The first nine holes have valley style with considerable elevation changes, while the back nine are more desert-like in the setting. The 5th and 18th are the most noticeable holes in Dubai Hills Golf Club. The 5th is said to have the best view in comparison to any other golf hole in Dubai. The 18th fairway consists of several lakes that will swallow up any balls that go off the rails. Valleys, artificial lakes, and wadis throughout the course also make the game more of a challenge.
Dubai Hills Golf Club has lush and well-conditioned greens and fairways, carved out of the sandy desert. It also has unmatched facilities to cater to golfers’ needs, such as a world-standardized driving range and putting green, a pro shop for the latest golf equipment, restaurants serving international cuisine, etc.
