Before I went to play on this golf course I had heard about the course's 600 yards par five and I knew that I was in for some challenging golf. Indeed, the course had the upper hand from the first hole.
The Yas Links course is spectacular, if you forget about the temperature for a moment, you could be on the east coast of Scotland. Enough said, I played very much over my handicap but left the course with a burning desire to be punished again...soon!
The clubhouse is beautiful, the locker rooms of the highest standard, the food is very good clubhouse food and the staff on par with any other professionally run golf course in the world. A truly satisfying experience, even more so after the second beer in the club's lounge.
