Golf communities in Dubai are among the most desirable places to live, with some of the most beautiful and well-planned neighbourhoods. As a bonus, you enjoy access to a championship golf course at your doorstep and a view of endless rolling greens and beautiful foliage from every corner of your home. One of the communities that is perhaps not spoken about so often and one that has earned its status as a hidden gem among Dubai’s residential areas is Victory Heights.

1. The Els Club
Designed to mirror some of the more challenging features of UK’s courses in a desert landscape, the Els Course is as beautiful to look at as it is challenging to play on. Since opening in 2007, it has become a premier destination for golf lovers in Dubai. Its signature course is the Desert Links, The Desert Links, which complements broad green fairways with little desert touches including indigenous flora and rolling sand dunes.
2. The Villages
Victory Heights is divided up into nine distinct neighbourhoods, known as villages, each of which contains a selection of 763 villas and 98 townhouses, with a further 96 homes in development. There are three primary architectural styles - European, Spanish and Mediterranean - giving the whole area a very pastoral aesthetic. One of the key benefits of living here is that you get very large home and plot sizes for the price you’re paying, as compared to similar neighbourhoods in the city.
3. Life at Victory Heights
This is a community tailor made for families. The paths are wide, quiet and lined with mature greenery. Homes are bounded by richly landscaped yards and gardens. In fact, only about 12% of the total area of Victory Heights is taken up by the villages, with about 50% of the space used for landscaping and the rest for the other key amenities in the community.
The larger area of Dubai Sports City is home to some top-tier sporting institutions such as the Spanish Soccer School, International Cricket Council Academy and Rugby Park. Along with the neighbouring areas of Motor City, it offers a large selection of restaurants and eateries, plus supermarkets and essential services such as healthcare clinics, laundromats and barbershops.
Four of Dubai’s major highways - Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, Al Khail Road, Hessa Street and Emirates Road, are easily accessible from Victory Heights. This allows for seamless access across the city, whether you want to drive over to the heart of the Downtown district, out to the beach and the Marina, or to one of two international airports.
