Opened for play in 2010, the Fire Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates was, like its well known sibling and host of the Dubai World Championships, the Earth Course, designed by former world number one, Greg Norman. The course measures a staggering total of 7,480 yards which will be more than enough to challenge even the very longest of hitters however additional sets of tees also allow golfers of all abilities to sample this magnificent course.
Throughout the Fire Course, tees have been carefully placed to provide variety of length, direction and elevation, while the landscape's natural features and topography are employed to provide even more challenging round. Surrounded by the Arabian Desert, the Fire Course has distinct links type attributes such as generous, undulating fairways flanked by tall, choppy rough and sloping greens which are well protected by large, well placed bunkers. This is a real thinking man’s golf course. Simply shooting straight for the pins will not always be the best strategy. Despite its modern setting, the Fire Course can be viewed as a bit of a throwback to more traditional courses.
With the Earth Course next door and two further courses – the Water and Wind designed by – on the way, the Jumeirah Golf Estates are set to become one of the finest golf holiday destinations anywhere in the world.
