Yas Links Abu Dhabi
Certificate of Excellence

Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

A challenging but enjoyable course, narrow so you need to keep it straight on the fairways, learn to love bunkers you will be in them. Be prepared to loose golf balls in to the ocean.
Enjoy a meal afterwards in Hickorys, good food I can recommend the schnitzel.

What a golf course, one of the most stunning I have ever played anywhere in the world and I have played quite a few and also one of the hardest.
There is a fairly gentle introduction on the first couple of holes and then it really gets going, ending with 3 truely wonderful / tough closing holes.
I feel high handicap golfers will find this tough and that is before you get to the massive undulating greens.With a handicap of 4, I would also play there when visiting the region, but can understand why it is not for some, also quite expensive. It is worth a visit at least once to make your own mind up.

Very beautiful, however bring alot of balls, if you do not keep it on the fairways, it is going to be a long day, then the wind, just forget about it, come look at the course, and have a drink on the veranda!!

Not quite sure why there is a review on motorsports on here. Yas Links is a new course close to the F1 track and in my opinion, is the best course in Abu Dhabi, despite the serious competition from the National (where the tour event is played) and Saadiyat (Gary Player's very high progile layout) and possibly the best in the UAE.
It's designed by the architect of Kingsbarns and I suspect the character is similar. Although built next to a lagoon, rather than the sea, it has a real links feel, undulating fairways, very slick greens and lots of dunes. Apparently it is all man made, but none the worse for it and kept in beautiful condition. 8 of the holes run next to the lagoon which is very much in play. The last 3 holes in particular are hugely challenging, as is the drive from the back tees on the 9th with a 200 yard carry.
The clubhouse completes the picture, very tasteful, and there are excellent practise facilities including a very enjoyable par 3 floodlit course. The only downside is the cost, it is also the most expesnive of the courses in Abu Dhabi, around £120-140 at peak times, but it is also, in my opinion a superb experience and (just about) worth the expense.

Go to the Yas Hotel via the internal tour bus, after you have spent what time you need at Ferrari World. If you at all interested in Motorsport these two places will leave you stunned.
