Jumeirah Golf Estates - Fire Course
Opened in January 2010, the second Greg Norman designed course at Jumeirah Golf Estates is a different experience than the more acclaimed “Earth” course and is generally considered to be a stronger links course. Norman has certainly proved himself in the construction of this spectacular course, and is a must-play for your next golfing holiday in Dubai.
Accuracy on your approach to the superbly manicured greens and good course planning is key here at “Fire”; a risk-reward strategy can help you score well here. Even non-golfers can appreciate the visually stunning views of this course which is beautifully maintained throughout the year and the hint of red in the sand of the bunkers here is a unique and rustic touch.
Players are easily deceived by the basic nature of their shot on the first hole, however it is imperative they do not get lured into a false sense of security as the player is then swiftly thrown into the game. Positioning on the tee may be considered to be the largest challenge this course poses, as large sandy regions and rough areas affect your play when aiming for a narrow fairway.
