Trump International Golf Club, Dubai

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

Est. 2017

Trump International Golf Club - Dubai, which opened in February 2017, is home to a highly-rated desert-style layout designed by Gil Hanse. The course sits in the middle of the Damac Hills residential development and is complemented by a 30,000 square foot clubhouse, the largest of its kind in Dubai.

Hanse's layout here utilised a large and cavernous barranca as the backbone of the routing. The barranca strategically interacts with the holes providing elevation change, views beyond the course and many exciting golf shots. The rolling fairways, inspired by the natural desert contours, took shape on top of the pure, endemic red sand. The juxtaposition of rustic barranca and formal revetted bunkering provides an impressive look and a unique combination of hazards.

Gusty wind, a wide variety of vegetation and an abundance of exposed sand all require deliberate shot making decisions in order to score. A handful of holes incorporate formidable water hazards, further encouraging strategic tee and approach shots.
