The Tournament took place at Dubai Hills Golf Club, a brand new 18 hole golfing experience nestled in the heart of Dubai. Established in 2018. Gary Johnston designed the course featuring sparkling lakes, wide fairways and stunning greens. Set to become Dubai’s most iconic golf course, golfers of all levels can enjoy the memorable holes that are both playable yet challenging, with breathtaking views of the city’s skyline. The 18-hole par 72 championship course will test your skills and leave the iconic view of the Burj Khalifa fresh in your mind. The side was formerly a camel stable on a largely flat property. Quite a few of the holes are played in isolation within little valleys, below the level of the surrounding houses. “The front nine has some dramatic elevation changes with wadi-style features”-says Gary Johnston. “The holes leading back to the clubhouse are built around a series of lakes and are lusher in their planting style, then the back nine, which is more desert-like in the shaping and planting”. An unparalleled 18-hole located just 15 minutes from Downtown Dubai with superior conditioning and World-class amenities is a perfect place for everyone. DHGC designed by European Golf Design and operated by Troon Golf, offers a challenge to golfers of all ability and is billed to become one of the key golfing destinations in the Middle East region.
