Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, voted one of the world's 'Top 100 Must Play Golf Courses', is a resort that incorporates an 18 hole championship golf course, a 9 hole par 3 course, golf academy, six restaurants and bars, a gymnasium, tropical swimming pool, the 225 bedroom Park Hyatt Dubai, 92 residential executive villas and a 121 berth marina.
There is a unique charm to Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, nestled between the serene settings of the tranquil Creek and just a drive away from the bustling city centre. A round of golf at this sporting oasis in the heart of the city is a delightful journey across the fabled landscape of Dubai, a city that thrives in all seasons. Well-groomed fairways lined with date palms and coconut trees, and attractive water hazards and shrubbery lend a tropical air to the Club's 18 hole, par 71 championship course.
The majestic Clubhouse which mirrors the sails of the traditional Arab dhow, has been one of Dubai's most photographed landmarks since it opened in 1993, capturing the essence of the region's seafaring traditions and presenting the perfect fusion of heritage and modernity. The centrepiece of the 80 hectare sports and leisure complex, the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club championship course (initially designed by Karl Litten) was given a makeover by Thomas Björn and European Golf Design in 2004/5, transforming it into a challenging 6,800 yard, par 71 course.
The Club also includes Park Hyatt Dubai, 92 residential villas, awardwinning restaurants and a 121 berth marina, making the Club a true landmark of luxury. Dubai's first ever golf academy boasts facilities such as a video swing analysis studio, a floodlit 9 hole Par 3 golf course, driving range and putting, bunker and chipping greens.
'The cradle of golf in the UAE,' as the Club is known, for contributing to the growth of the game, was voted as one of the "Top 100 Must Play Golf Courses" in the world and hosted the Dubai Desert Classic in 1999 and 2000, offering a true test for the best in the business.
