Community Guide: Emirates Hills

Written by Arpan Ghosh

When considering a community in Dubai that offers exclusivity, complete privacy and the very best in luxury living Emirates Hills tends to hover at the top of the list. A gated villa community located near not just one but two major golf clubs, it offers one of the most lavish settings for any home and features some of the most expensive villas in the city.

1. Emirates Hills Dubai Overview

Emirates Hills is named after Beverly Hills and shares a similar reputation to its Californian counterpart, counting some of Dubai's most prominent figures in the world of business and entertainment among its residents. It also bears the distinction of being the first freehold community in Dubai, which has also made it a popular choice for holiday homes owned by international celebrities.

Best Golf in the Region

The Address Montgomerie is the main highlight of Emirates Hills, with a championship course designed by Scottish eight-time European Tour Order of Merit champion Colin Montgomerie in collaboration with architect Desmond Muirhead. Operated by the highly renowned Troon Golf group, the 200-acre course and academy is considered to be the premier golf destination in the Middle East.

Sitting only a short distance away from the community is the Emirates Golf Club, one of the oldest golf clubs in the country and the first in the region to have a grass course. It contains two 18-hole courses the Majlis course, which hosts the annual Omega Dubai Desert Classic (teeing off later this month); and the Faldo course, designed by golf legend Nick Faldo and the only course in the region to operate at night.

Exceptional Community

The main community is divided into four sub-communities Dyaar Al Hambra, Montgomerie Maisonettes, Montgomerie Hills and the Signature Villas. Each neighborhood has been designed to offer spectacular views of the Montgomerie course, and contain a limited selection of family homes in a contemporary Arabian or Spanish design.
