Yas Links Golf Club

5-star: Fabulous – courses don’t get much better than this.

Est. 2010

Yas Links Golf Club is home to one of the Middle East's newest and most exciting golf courses. Highly acclaimed designer Kyle Phillips has crafted a challenging links-style course alongside a broad seawater lagoon, which connects directly into the Arabian Gulf. Also in close proximity to the course is Abu Dhabi's prestigious new Yas Marina Formula 1 race circuit. Aircraft arriving at the nearby International Airport might also get your attention.

This wonderful layout of gently undulating golf holes rides across rolling dunes that stretch two miles along the lagoon's shoreline. The course features nine seashore greens, as the two nine-hole loops weave their way through the undulating sand hills. Yas Links is peppered with 119 bunkers, defining the fairways and defending the greens. Stretching to 7,414 yards from the tips, five different tee settings ensures the course plays tough from the Championship tees, while creating an enjoyable and easier going experience for members and visitors, whatever their golfing prowess.

In addition to the 18-hole championship layout, the facilities here also include a nine-hole short course, golf academy, floodlit practice facilities and luxury clubhouse. Yas Links is part of Aldar Properties’ Yas Island development, a global leisure destination.
