Jumeirah Golf Estates (Fire course)

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2009

Jumeirah Golf Estates' Fire course opened in November 2009 coincident with the staging of the European Tour's Dubai World Championship on its companion Earth course. Both Earth and Fire are the first Greg Norman designs in the Gulf.

Harnessing the stark beauty of the desert, Fire has been designed to reward focus and precision while offering players a variety of strategic play options. The shot-making challenge starts with finding some tightish fairways and avoiding a plethora of large terracotta bunkers that punctuate the rolling terrain. Captivating flora beyond the rolling fairways also accentuates the overall fiery theme.

Jumeirah Golf Estates is set to become one of the world's most prestigious residential golfing communities. Inspired by the natural elements of Fire, Earth, Water and Wind, and interwoven with tastefully designed homes, the four championship golf courses of Jumeirah Golf Estates are set to take their place among the world's most prestigious residential golf developments.

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.
