Links golf in the Emirates

Played on 2.2.2020. The flat 18-hole course, modeled by small hills, on the still relatively new "pleasure island" Yas Island near Abu Dhabi is located directly opposite Ferrari World and the huge Yas Mall (is also worth a visit for those who are not shopping). The course definitely deserves the name links, since it more or less corresponds to the generally valid claim to links and, if you stray from the fairway, the high dense grass makes the ball recovery much more difficult. In addition, there are some lanes directly on the sea, with the highlight of the 17, where you have to carry directly 140 meters from the tee to the green. Higher HC should have some extra balls in the bag. The course is also challenging due to the many and sometimes very deep bunkers that are best avoided. The general condition of the fairways was disappointing. Lots of bare patches and a lot of floor in repair. However, the mostly undulated and fast greens were in good condition. Billing boards are missing and would be helpful despite GPS in the cart. The tee marks are also getting used to here. There are no color markings as usual, but numbers on the respective tees. For us it was 70 for Champion, 62 for men and 54 for women. The clubhouse is very sophisticated and equipped with everything you need including a restaurant (not tested) and a swimming pool. You register in the pro shop with the very friendly staff. On arrival, the bags will be removed and taken to the personalized cart. This is then provided on the driving range where the balls are free. The cart has GPS but no plastic water bottles for environmental reasons. You can tap water yourself at various stations. The game was still very busy on a Tuesday afternoon. There were longer waiting times on the backnine where up to three flights accumulated at the tees from the 16th tea. Ultimately, we were 4.5 hours away. The green fee is graded according to days of the week and tee times. The cheaper the week and the later the start time, the cheaper it will be. We paid around 110 € per person for the round including cart (you can also take a trolly on the round) with a starting time from 1:30 p.m. Yes, due to the proximity to the airport you can hear and see some planes and one or the other engine noise from Ferrari World can be heard, but that didn't bother us. You should rather enjoy the views of the Abu Dhabi skyline, even if one or the other construction site on the edge of the square is not so attractive. You should still have played the course once.

Golf course great, but a lot of noise

We played the course in February 2019.
The place itself is fantastic. A great Linksplatz in sensational condition, very varied and interesting holes. From the golf course itself, there are really only positive things to report.
Visually, the drum around is now terrible and spoils the linksplatzdesign. There were many skyscrapers built right on the square, the Warner Brother Studio, the roller coaster of the Ferrari World and of course the racetrack are directly visible and do not fit into the picture.
Bad is the noise from the race track, with us the cars drove without a break from 9-12. The place is also right in the departure gate of the airport.
The golf course clearly gets 5 stars. If you take into account the optics around the square and the noise, there would definitely be a deduction.

A great golf experience

We played the Golf Course 3 times in March 2018. He was in great shape. The nice, friendly staff and the gastronomy after the round made our day a perfect day.
Again any time.

Golf with a difference

Golf Links at 30 degrees in the middle of the flight path and with sound background of the Abu Dhabi circuit. Very beautiful views of the sea and the Ferrari World. The place is very fair, without the optical stress as in Abu Dhabi Golf Club and Saadiyat Beach with the bunkers off the tee. Chicken sandwich at the boarding station mmmhhh delicious.

The finest

Very beautifully landscaped square in the sensational care condition.
Varied course in links style with many holes with ocean views. Each hole has its challenge, sometimes it is the length, all you have to place the ball well, sometimes both. Greens not very undulating, as middling golfer can have fun and play well, but the latter probably not. In the first round, which is played on this space We played the course over the years repeatedly and each time found him in premium condition. The clubhouse is very nice, the view from the terrace spectacular.
There is construction work next to the square, disrupts virtually impossible. Previously the space without edge development was by skyscrapers, that's true, but no longer can see the ugly waterslide now. If that is too unpuristisch, may indeed go in February to St Andrews and there play at 2 degrees, we prefer to play at 25 degrees.
Unfortunately, the starting direction of the aircraft leads often about the place, so we "only" 5.

Mint, terrible place

Course design similar to the links courses in Scotland, with the same amount of "vegetables" off the fairways.
Heavy space, especially in high winds.
Fairways sensational, greens very undulating and fast, but playable.
Most holes are along the sea and especially Hole 4 and 17 have it with dismissed.
Restaurant impeccable, everything was very neat!

Fast links

I played the course in mid-March 2016th The left character was well transposed in course design, but links golf is for me more than just course design. I've left u Scotland played courses in Ireland, and there Yas can not keep up. In addition to the links courses in St. Andrews nunmal is not the Ferrari World and it will built there is no luxury apartments.

The fairways and greens are in very good condition, the rough is however left to themselves mostly. If one is abundantly clear from the direction you can save the search. A straight drive is half the battle. The greens are very generous and have many pin positions. Just to make the greens is not enough. In addition, the wind is a real issue, the default values ​​of the individual holes depend really on the wind direction.

The fairways running along the sea, are already spectacular. Three of the four par 3 next to the sea, the ninth and eighteenth fairway running along the sea to the clubhouse. The practice facility is perfect (incl. A 9 hole par 3 course).

The clubhouse itself is very tasteful, the staff friendly and accommodating.

Conclusion: Heavy square with partly spectacular holes, but rather links in Scotland.

Beautiful, but not easy

The place is very well maintained and well laid out. I find it sometimes very tricky to play because lurking bunkers in most land areas. Especially the last three holes were in some headwind, very interesting to play.
Is perhaps not quite as nice as scenic Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, but definitely a memorable experience.

Declared Dead

Played in January 2016 the place is in top condition. We played with a living in Abu Dhabi player who was himself a member of an Andren Club. He told that the last summer had destroyed the place. After a minor rainy season and some efforts now wonderfully again.

Which toilet, the commentator, the smell and cleanliness complained, I do not know. In the clubhouse, that was hardly.

The course is from the back tees a real challenge and with high handicaps should bring a lot of balls.

Catastrophic health of the entire golf course

Multiple played the course in 2015. Last time on 10/14/2015 - 18 holes, but that will also be the last time. The entire golf course is something burned, so that all are brown spots on the fairway and greens - as the field looks from farmers better. Access roads to the fairways went broken - it's just how bitter was run down the place so, just mega disappointing in clear lines. The sanitary facility on the golf course are a bit disgusting, it smells like urine - just like in the showers. The Greenkeeper, if there is one has totally failed. The only plus is the restaurant, the terrace with a view. The green fees are not worth playing it there.

Okay...

... But the reviews that have written I can not quite understand, because they are too good in my opinion my predecessors. The place is in a very good condition and also the care "around it" (restaurant, pro shop) is fine. Viewed overall the place is but boring. Therefore, by my side just three points. Because offers its Saadiyat and Abu Dhabi Golf more.

Best Place

We played the course today (Jan 2014). The course is from AZ in top condition and offers golf ball at its finest. The place is very beautiful location - on one side you can see the Ferrari World and the Yas hotel from Iceland, on the other hand you can look over the bay with the many watersports. The holes are created fair, but it is recommended to be a good putter ... (Very large, undulating greens). Super nice clubhouse. One of the best places previously played.

Great challenge

've Played here in November 2012.
The driving range is from the top of maintenance, balls and targets on the range.
The place is very well maintained and meanders to the half of the holes along the Waser. He is playing well for all classes through the different teas and the holes are clearly visible. The rough is high, but the fairways are generous.
Clubhouse is very good and also the Pro Shop has it all.

A place that is fun, unfortunately, is only slightly further away away (reservations best driver for the day).

Simply super

The golf club is located outside, about 25 min distance far from the city. The most beautiful clubhouse and very friendly staff bribe. In the pro shop with very nice staff always friendly Antwortn. The course is extremely well maintained. Very fast, but precise greens and of course links course - regular, undulating fair looking. Water comes into play several times violently, especially on the last hole a Challenge in wind or breeze. No stress of place, such as Faldo Emirates in Dubai, where the Marshal passes every 10 minutes, faster to play, even though the flight was still far behind us with the request. Slightly annoying, but really the only point here. Taking off Flügzeuge that rise in 300-400 Hmetern over the place Enough balls in the pocket if no Likscourse specialist - that can not hurt. Away from the fairway eats the place virtually all small white things. We Wüden very welcome to visit again, as it is written - super fine clubhouse with swimming pool in the garden.
