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.

This is a great golf course, beautifully presented and with one of the best three closing holes in golf I have ever played!
Condition was excellent with the greens running at around 11.
Super club house and facilities.
If driving from Dubai use a sat nav as the road signs when you get to Yas Island are almost non existant and you can easily miss the entrance whilst being bewildered by the incredible looking building that houses Ferrari World.
Only minor detail to whomever owns this jewel is to buy the nearby waterpark and knock it down..........this magnificent course will never get a 10/10 whilst this monstrosity sits in your eye line on a couple of the first holes. Kids screaming when the wind is in the wrong direction also not golf orientated.
Get rid and you have one of the best golf courses anywhere in the world!

I booked a table outside for 12 of us for dinner at 7pm, which was confirmed by email. We turned up at 5 to 7, and no table was set up outside. When I spoke to one of the staff, she started to say the outside area was closed, but as soon as I said we had a confirmed booking so how could that be, she went rushing off, and all of a sudden, a couple of staff rushed out and started setting up a table. We then waited at least 25 minutes for our drinks order to come, and people who came after us, were served theirs before us........very frustrating. By chance another group of friends turned up who had also booked an outside table, of course not a sign of one being set up in advance, so they then rushed off to set that one up too. By the time we were sitting down to order from the menus, every table outside was full, so I am not sure how the staff ever thought that the outside terrace was closed???? Anyway, once we had ordered everything went more smoothly, the food was excellent - good pub grub type of menu, which is just what we wanted - great views of the mangroves, and plenty of lawn for the kids to run around on, so it was a lovely evening, and definitely worth the visit, but be prepared for a slow start...........

Anytime I find a place in Abu Dhabi that has good customer service I have to give a positive review. It is rare but this place is very nice. Sit outside and enjoy the mangroves. The kids can run and play in the grass. It is very relaxing and enjoyable.
