About

Some iconic holes and top-notch facilities make this a must-play course

Located just 15 minutes from downtown Dubai, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club is an award-winning 18-hole championship golf course that ranks as one of the best in Dubai. The par-71 course has been laid out beautifully, with well-placed bunkers, man-made lakes and the Creek all making you work to score well. The fairways, attractively lined with coconut trees and dates, are in impeccable condition, and the greens run as fast and true as you would expect from one of Dubai's top courses.

There are challenges right from the off at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. The first is a long-par-4 dogleg left with a massive bunker running up the right hand side and more sand dissuading any attempt to cut the corner.

The second features one of the toughest tee shots on the course, playing to a narrow fairway with water ready to ensnare anything that's either short, left or long, and bunkers in play if you go too far right. With your approach requiring a water carry to a green guarded by a massive bunker to the left, this isn't a hole for the faint of heart.

The 6th is one of the most iconic holes in the Middle East, a par-4 that plays from a unique floating tee box that makes for an exceptionally daunting drive. With the creek to the right and more water some 240 yards down the fairway on the left, the main goal is to keep your ball dry, ideally by finding the left hand side of the fairway. From there, you'll be faced with a tricky approach over water, as the hole doglegs to the left around a picturesque lake to a contoured green mercifully unprotected by bunkers. 

While the 18th isn't technically the hardest hole on the course, it's been ruining scorecards since the course opened for play in 1989. A long par-4 that usually plays into the wind, it features another nervy tee shot with water on both sides. Getting good distance on your drive is key, because you don't want to be hitting close to 200 yards into the wind on your approach to the two-tier green protected by bunkers on the left and water wrapping around the front and right. Often, the sensible play is to treat this hole like a par 5, but it's hard to resist taking on the challenge of finding the putting surface in regulation.

Facilities

Beyond the main 18-hole championship golf course at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, there's a par-3 course and a driving range, both floodlit and built to the highest standards. The service and the welcome that’s on offer at the strikingly impressive clubhouse make you feel as though you've walked through the doors of a palace. There's everything you would expect, including two pro shops and multiple restaurants catering for all tastes. 

Overall, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club is a must-play on any golf holiday in Dubai.

Well worth the money & condition of course was amazing & the girls waitressing were really nice would definitely come back

Played the Montgomerie on Monday but we much all enjoyed the Dubai Creek course today it was an amazing experience for all 3 of us it was a bit more forgiving than Montgomerie which was also a great course and would recommend them both can’t wait to play the ELS course on Friday
