Neighbor to The Els Club, is another one of Dubai newly developed Golf locations, the Jumeirah Golf Estates. Out of the two courses designed by Greg Norman on the estate, the ‘Earth’ is critically acclaimed and said to be one of the very best of the lot. Like its predecessors of great courses in the region, the ‘Earth’ has quickly emerged on to the golfing map with handsome ratings awarded by the famous ‘Golf digest’.
Home to the DP World Tour Championship, the course is well maintained and kept in immaculate condition. To protect the greens, are a menacing 102 bunkers on the course which is a challenge to cope with. Earth’s water features include 20 lakes across the course and 2 streams dissecting the holes 16 and 18 with marvelous artistry.
With daunting and challenging holes over the lakes, you can consider yourself lucky not to get wet. The Earth has a majestic and natural look with almost 3500 mature trees to complete the course’s attachment with Mother Nature.
