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.

“Take extra balls!!”

We liked everything about it .Fabulous course as good as anything we have played in Europe ,U.S.A. or Far East . A real challenge for high handicappers , but hope to return with a little more form .

“Hard course, but fun to play on”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Yas Links is an astonishing golf course, with the sand dunes and the water all rolling into one. If you want to take pictures, then the best time to come is in the evening when the sun is either just setting or has gone done, the views are just ace.

The golf course is even better, with holes that are fun to play on, even though they are hard to play on. I would recommend this golf course to anyone who plays golf. One other thing, the golf buggies and trolleys aren't included in the price of your green fee that you have inevitably paid.

“as faux links go, this is one of the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Yas Links really captures links feel, and is beautifully designed in terms of balance and challenge. the finish is spectacular, along the sea shore, but for me the 14th was the best hole - a short par 4 with a long narrow slopey green.... the only drawback is the inland view, sometimes of the hotels, but worst of all the water theme park, reminiscent of the old chemical plant at the real, and still pretty good, links at seaton carew in county durham. play Yas if you're there, or even just close....

“A true links course...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

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.
