Half a century ago, Dubai was a sleepy trading and fishing outpost, but the petroleum economy changed everything, and one of the consequences of the influx of capital has been the construction of golf courses. The first turf layouts were constructed here in the Eighties and Nineties, and the Dubai Creek and Yacht Club center was one. The urban area has since taken over the area, so you no longer see the pair of sails from junk boats from afar as you approach the club. The course occupies level, sandy ground—oddly enough for a desert locale, the proper kind of sand for bunkering proved elusive and had to be brought in from Oman— overgrown with grass and relieved by water in the form of the creek after which the club is called, and which was the lifeblood of the earliest settlement. Karl Litten's design has something for everyone; just watch out for the winds.

Superbe parcours à Dubai. Les greens et fairways sont en super conditions! Le clubhouse est magnifique et le staff est très gentil et serviable. Un grand merci à All Square pour l’organisation.

The course is absolutely amazing. The fairways were in great shape and the greens were fast but very receptive (compared to what I have been used to so far in my golfing experience). My favorite holes were 5th (beautiful view on the skyline), 6th (they built the tees on the water), 17th (water down the left, bunkers down the right and a tight fairway) and 18th (great finish with the clubhouse in the back). Upon arrival at the club, everything was ready for us to go (buggy with clubs and fresh water). The staff is quite amazing. We arrived slightly late for our tee time (the taxi couldn’t find his way) but George and the reservation team was prepared and managed to get us through without disturbing other groups. The clubhouse is a masterpiece of architecture and offers a great terrace for a nice beer after your round. We didn’t get to eat there but the food that was passing by looked very good. Overall, it was the best golfing experience I had so far.
