Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1998

Jebel Ali Golf Resort & Spa: This is one of the world's best championship standard nine-holers, and a great place to play if you are visiting either Dubai or Abu Dhabi.

The opening hole, a testing par-5 with an approach over water to the green, underlines the somewhat tropical and garden-like feel to Jebel Ali, quite a surprise is you are expecting a dusty, dry, desert environment. It also gets you used to the small and fast greens.

Excellent bunkering and tightish fairways, characterise much of the layout. And no shortage of palms, small trees and flowering shrubs, all liberally growing within the sandy waste areas. Peacocks, guinea fowl and all manner of exotic birds don't look at all out of place in this garden-like setting.

The course also features a large saltwater lake with interconnecting bridges which comes into play on five of the nine holes, mainly in front of the greens. Four different sets of tees provides a different aspect to each hole as well as the opportunity to play an 18-hole round of 6375 yards (using the Black / Blue tee-box combination).

Pick of the holes: the elevated tee at the exquisite par-3 8th, gives a wonderful view over the course, the surrounding desert and out onto the Arabian Gulf.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
