Community Guide: Jumeirah Golf Estates

Written by Arpan Ghosh

Dubai played a significant role in bringing golf to the Middle East with the establishment of the very first grass golf course at the Emirates Golf Club in 1988. The sport's popularity in the region, and indeed in the city, has grown tremendously since those early days, with the development of golf communities that blend luxury and leisure in one beautiful package. Among the most well-known of Dubai's golf communities is Jumeirah Golf Estates, located in the central district of Dubailand and spread over an incredible 120 million square feet, of which roughly 75% features mature greenery while only a quarter is given over to residential development.

1. JGE Dubai Overview

World-Class Golf

Jumeirah Golf Estates is defined by its two 18-hole golf courses, named Fire and Earth and designed by champion Australian golfer Greg Norman. Each course features a distinctive aesthetic that reflects its name, with Earth using contrasts of green and brown while Fire incorporates bright golden colors. the playing experience on each is unique, with a different topographical layout to provide a distinctive challenge for players.

The Earth Course, which has a design inspired by Norman's favorite golf courses across Europe and North America, is perhaps the more well-known of the two, as it hosts the DP World Tour Championship every winter. The championship is part of the last leg of the European Tour and is a highlight of Dubai's sporting calendar, drawing in more than 65,000 spectators. It is essentially a weekend-long golf festival, complementing the action on the greens with live music, food and a variety of entertainment options. The Fire Course, which has a more desert-inspired look to it, hosts local tournaments and also features a links-style course that is ideal for seasoned players.
