Yas Links

Yas Island - Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates

Yas Links Golf Course situates on the western shores of Yas Island, a short drive from Abu Dhabi International Airport and the Saadiyat Highway. It is considered the only true links course in the Middle East at the time of establishment in 2010.

With a total length of 7425 yards, this 18-hole par 72 club is certainly a challenging golf course, with long fairways and demanding greens. Doglegs, bunkers, and water hazards are strategically placed along the fairways, keeping players on their toes through the golf round.

Don’t be neglected by the pristine beach outside. This challenging course requires a high level of accuracy to enter the end of a golf round.

Yas Links Golf Course was voted the “Top 10 New International Golf Courses” by Golf Magazine USA and the “world’s top 25 courses” by Golf Digest USA. It is also one of the most breathtaking courses in the region. All 18 holes have ocean views, of which 8 are built right up to the shoreline.

For golf beginners, there is a 9-hole academy course, a driving range, and a putting green to practice their swings. Yas Links’ pro shop is well-stocked with golf equipment from world-famous designers.

Here is also a restaurant overviewing the Arabian Gulf. Imagine how wonderful it is to enjoy a cold drink after a demanding golf round while adorning the gorgeousness of the ocean.
