World-class Golf

The two 18-hole golf courses at Jumeirah Golf Estates, Fire and Earth, were created by world-class Australian golfer Greg Norman and serve as the centrepieces of the area. Each course has a unique aesthetic that corresponds to its name; for example, Earth uses contrasts of green and brown, while Fire uses vibrant golden hues. Each offers a different playing experience, with a different topographical layout to present a particular challenge for players.

The Earth Course is the more well-known of the two because it hosts the DP World Tour Championship. The competition attracts more than 65,000 spectators and highlights Dubai's sporting calendar. It is a weekend-long golf festival that includes live music, food, and other forms of entertainment to complement the game on the greens. Local tournaments are held on the Fire Course, which has a more desert-like appearance. It also has a links-style course that is perfect for seasoned players.

A seasonal destination, Global Village is typically open during the cooler months.

The Country Club is the area's jewel, offering a wide variety of top-notch dining options, each with a panoramic terrace overlooking the golf courses. Every day of the week, The Flame Tree Restaurant & Grill hosts special theme nights in addition to its extensive dinner menu. From its terrace, you can see the 18th hole of the Fire Course. If watching golf isn't your thing, head to The Sports Bar, which has multiple TVs set up throughout the space and shows a variety of sports. Additionally serves lunch, dinner, and breakfast. With their healthy dining options, Fresca Delicatessen & Cafe provides a more laid-back, relaxed experience. This is your go-to spot for juices, salads, and other sweet treats.
