Adding to the choice of residents in Dubai Hills Estate, one of the most sought-after residential destinations in the city, the golf club is central to the mega-development’s lifestyle ethos. With numerous premium villas and townhouses set around the golf course, residents become part of a lush-green community.

A destination for those who seek to live in active and green environment, Dubai Hills Estate is a fully integrated community that offers residents access to world-class choices. The golf club adds to an array of attractions including the Dubai Hills Mall, which will offer over 650 retail and F&B (food anf beverages) outlets, family entertainment, a cineplex and hypermarket, and a vibrant Boulevard, which offers diverse social experiences including cafes, restaurants, recreational facilities, art studios and retail options.

A differentiating strength of Dubai Hills Golf Club is the exceptionally designed Academy Building, which sits at the heart of the spacious floodlit practice facility.

It will serve as a service point for golfers arriving early and will feature two golf studios, teaching bays and an F&B kiosk. The practice facility also includes a 220-m long warm up area with multiple target greens designed to allow golfers to practice shots from wedge up to medium-long irons before going out to play.

The warm up area can also be converted into a 9-hole short course in the evenings. Additionally, the facility will include a dedicated short game area where golfers can hone their chipping and a large practice putting green.

The course will be maintained using recycled water and has been planted with Platinum TE Paspalum (greens) and Pure Dynasty Seeded Paspalum (tees and fairways) along with a wide array of lush desert landscaping.
