It’s that time of the year when the weather begins to relent and allows those in the UAE to look for new outdoor pursuits.
And for golf lovers in Dubai, The Els Club is the perfect location to have a ball.
The club, nestled right in the heart of Dubai Sports City, is the ideal location to hone your golfing skills, irrespective of your level, while relaxing with friends and family.
The Els Club brings together characteristics of the international courses on which the legendary Ernie Els made his name; bunkers from Royal Melbourne, the rolling fairways of Muirfield, and greens from Pinehurst.
Each hole has four differing tee lengths, allowing handicap and scratch golfers alike to challenge their skill and strategy against the best the world of golf has to offer. As a destination, The Els Club has a lot to offer.
Run by golf management company Troon, it boasts some of the best practice facilities in the region with a fully lit driving range, open until 21:30, along with a world-class short game area.
Furthermore, The Els Club is home to the only Butch Harmon School of Golf outside of the United States.
Harmon is widely regarded as one of the finest golf coaches in the world, and the school is built on his proven teaching methods and unique philosophy.
Supported with state-of-the-art equipment and elite level instructors, the school offers a variety of options for golfers on all levels. Apart from golfing facilities, there are a variety of award-winning food and beverage offerings.
Named after Ernie Els’ record-breaking score at the 2003 Mercedes Championship, the 261 spike bar is a perfect place to relax and unwind after a round of golf, catch some sport or watch Dubai’s spectacular sunsets over the signature course.
Speaking about the venue, The Els Club general manager Karl Whitehead said: “Here at The Els Club we pride ourselves on delivering quality across the board.
