The first opportunity to experience the unique traditions of the game. An eighteen-hole course, a nine-hole academy course, clubhouse, golf academy and floodlit practice facilities, set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf—the course combines unparalleled visual glory with the thrill of golf’s ultimate test.

Play par 3 every month with mates and we have the best time having a bash around the rolling dunes at Yas links. We have a few beverages on the go and love to retire at Hickory's for a meal after. Great place.

An exceptionally scenic layout, this links style course is another favorite course of mine in the United Arab Emirates.

Played 4th and 5th April with my 14 yo Son. All staff very friendly and welcoming. Course was quiet when we played at 2pm and 3pm - we were round in under 4 hours both times.

In my opinion the best course in the UAE. We played in the shotgun event at 1pm on Friday 27 March and from start to finish the experience was great. The course is in super condition, it was not slow but a fair pace and each hole offered something different. We felt that to truly get the full experience you... More

We played two rounds here during our visit to Abu Dhabi in March and loved every minute. From arrival to reluctant departure; in the pro shop, on the course and in the restaurant every member of staff was cheerful, welcoming and helpful. The course is beautifully situated and in excellent condition. It is sufficiently challenging for low handicappers but not... More

Very slow play. We lived in Abu Dhabi and have played Yas many times so have an in-depth knowledge of the course. During the winter months when this tricky course is very busy, insufficient times is allowed for new players to the course to negotiate its many hazards eg. Losing and hitting balls out of the rough, water and so... More

Lovely links course - I'm an awful golfer so did a bit of landscaping. However, staff all very nice, facilities excellent and the changing rooms are amazing - almost worth going just to check them out.
