Al Hamra Golf Club: provides a taste of links-style golf in Ras Al Khaimah, the most northerly emirate of the UAE. Designed by Peter Harradine this 18-hole championship course is laid out close to the shores of the Arabian Gulf, meandering around a large open sea water lagoon, with four smaller lagoons also integral to the course's defences. Five million cubic meters of sand were moved to create gentle elevation changes and rises and falls in the terrain. As with traditional links courses, the front-nine makes its way out and away from the club house, while the back-nine returns home around the lagoon to the clubhouse. The opening holes on both nines and the testing par-5 18th are the most dangerously lagoon-flanked holes. Several others are skirted by large, sandy waste bunkers, and occasionally residential properties are also present, though set well back from the course. Using a combination of holes from the front and back-nines, a composite 9-hole course has been created to allow for floodlit play - golf under the stars is well worth a try. Measuring 7,325 yards at full length, but with five varying tee options, Al Hamra provides a fun and enjoyable test of golf for the seasoned professional or fledgling enthusiast.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
