Emirates Golf Club
Emirates Hills 2 - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
The Florida-based course architect Karl Litten designed course is a challenging par 72, 7,301-yard layout, featuring hundreds of indigenous species of flora and fauna, beautifully complemented by meandering fairways and seven fresh and saltwater lakes. The Majlis course has developed a worthy reputation worldwide as a testing layout for even the best golfers with its most challenging being the par 4, dogleg 8th. Stroke index 3 and playing a full 434 yards, it has the unusual distinction of playing up-hill and requires a long, well directed drive to leave a reasonable second shot to its small, undulating green where the dreaded 3-putt is always a threat.
