    Yas Island Links

    Fresh from creating masterpieces like Kingsbarns near St Andrews and Dundonald in  Troon, Scotland, Kyle Phillips, one of the world's leading course architects, has created this genuine, traditional links course out of a flat desert wasteland. It's the first of its type in the Middle East region - and it's a corker.

    Where there were rolling dunes and wasteland, there's now a collection of rolling verdant fairways, deep bunkers, wispy rough and inviting, sloping greens with their traditional heartbreaking run-offs. Against all the odds, Phillips has created a modern classic and the par-72 layout, which plays to a maximum of 7,450 yards, is endowed with nine holes that dramatically hug the coastline, while  all 18 holes boast views of the shoreline. Multiple teeing areas make all this enjoyable for most golfers.

    In addition to the championship 18-hole course, there's a nine-hole academy course, clubhouse, golf academy and floodlit practice facilities, set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf.

    Yas Links is also memorable because it's situated on the spectacular Yas Island, strategically located between the coast and city of Abu Dhabi and Dubai, with a range of world-class hotels, theme parks, golf courses, mega malls, apartments and villas, and much more. There's a Ferrari theme park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, featuring the world's fastest roller coaster, and if you want more excitement the Warner Brothers theme park and Yas Water Park should suffice. This is also  the home of the Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

    The Yas Hotel is also a unique attraction, with a spectacular aerodynamic gridshell exterior that is a fully programmable cloak of illuminated glass panels, enabling it to act as a light show at night, providing different shades and colours, including animations. Like the fantastic Scottish links-style course in the desert, it's all a little surreal, but makes a trip here all the more memorable.

    One of the best courses I've ever played
    Yas is an amazing course which gets better and better throughout the round. The best hole for me is the 18th which has great views. The 19th hole was great with all the sport you could imagine on, including the Ryder Cup which made it even better, the service we received was first class and up there with anything I've seen at a golf resort. Not sure anyone walks the course so make sure you have buggies as it makes it a lot easier in the heat. Would love to return here, could play Yas every day for the rest of my life and not get bored.
    Amazing setting
    We had a fantastic round here and would've like to played another as part of the package. The holes around the water are really enjoyable and with run offs around the greens you really have to have good course management to score well as being the wrong side of the green can make a tricky up and down. 
    A great course, up there with the best
    Yas Links stands out especially as one of the best courses I have played. Not surprisingly there were similarities between it and Kingsbarns in terms of the lay-out, and from every tee position the holes looked spectacular. The short holes were all memorable, and go to prove that a par-three doesn’t need to be approaching 200 yards to make it a real test of golf, but the finishing hole – a great par-5 following the coast line round to a perfect finishing green had everyone talking in the bar afterwards.
    Looking forward to playing again
    Just back from Yas Links so here is my review. We really enjoyed it, we've already booked to come back here in six months time. It is probably one of the best courses you'll ever play, World Class! Has a feel of Kingsbarns but with the added element of sun and cactus! The 17th was a personal favourite for me. Just one small thing I'd recommend to someone playing here is that the buggies give you yardages to the middle of the greens, the other courses in Abu Dhabi give them to flag.
    One of the best golf courses I've played
    I can honestly say I was blown away with just how seriously nice this course was. Yas Links is by far the best golf course I have ever played and I can say that even though I am only a 20 handicapper I have played on some really nice courses all over the world. The holes were just so unique to anything I have ever played before and the last 3 or 4 holes just somehow got even better, finishing off with the 18 being just an incredible hole. I would recommend any golfer to play all three courses in Abu Dhabi we played (Abu Dhabi and Saadiyat being the others) and bet my last dollar that they will not have one single complaint.
