The first Links golf course in the Middle East region. The first designed by Kyle Phillips, one of the world’s leading golf course designers. 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.

Really enjoyed our first outing on Yas links. Excellent clubs were hired and staff were very helpful to us. Greens were slick but true and some great views from the course over the sea and towards Ferrari world. Would like to come back.

Everything was excellent about the golf experience, from the booking process, to the pro shop service to the golf course itself, and finally to the clubhouse and post golf dining experience in Hickories. The greens on the golf course are superb, probably the best I...More

There are 18 holes championship and 9 executive with floodlight. The course is challenging and well kept and the Club House is the best in Abu Dhabi. The green fees are quite expensive even in comparison with the Saadyat Golf which in my opinion has...More

We thoroughly enjoyed playing here, it is a real challenge, beautifully presented. For some reason ordering a taxi presents a problem for some of the receptionists! All in all would definitely go back.
