Set among rolling hills and delicate mangrove plantations, Yas Links Abu Dhabi – designed by Kyle Phillips, the world-renowned course architect – is the Arabia’s only true links course.
Nestled on the western shores of Yas Island, Abu Dhabi’s landmark entertainment destination, every daunting, dynamic Yas Links hole has sparkling coastline views of the Arabian Gulf – indeed eight run right up along the coastline. A favourite with UAE-based players, the course has recently been acclaimed as one of ‘The World’s Top City Golf Clubs’ by CNN Travel and has also been named amongst the world’s most beautiful by MSN UK – the online news, sport and entertainment provider.
Voted among the ‘Top 10 New International Golf Courses’ by the USA’s influential Golf Magazine, and named one of the world’s top 25 by US publication Golf Digest the Par 72 championship course stretches to a demanding 7,450 yards, while a nine-hole Par 3 academy course, floodlit practice facilities and luxurious clubhouse further complement the offering.
Served by seven nearby hotels, including the iconic, five-star Yas Viceroy Hotel – the only hotel in the world straddling a Formula 1® track – Yas Links is distinguished by private boat mooring and a fine dining restaurant, with stunning views of Abu Dhabi’s 21st century skyline thrown in for free, as well as a private lawn for events and croquet.
