The Track at Meydan Golf, has a no-members approach, offering a welcoming and accessible environment to all levels of golfers. Another Peter Harradine design, the course replaced the old Nad Al Sheba layout when Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum fulfilled a lifelong dream by building a fitting home for the Dubai World Cup, the richest day in horseracing.
As the nearest golf course to Dubai’s Downtown district, The Track, managed by Troon Golf, is the best place to enjoy views of the spectacular Burj Khalifa, which can even serve as a useful alignment guide on some shots. Like most Harradine layouts, it’s an enjoyable course that encourages golfers to get the ball in play off the tee and then challenges them with some tricky approach shots. The greens are some of the flattest in the emirate, but they’re also among the truest. Eight of the nine holes feature natural lakes with shot accuracy required.
Four tee box options on each hole offer varying lengths and degrees of difficulty, so that every golfer, no matter their ability, will have a chance to experience the enjoyment and tackle the challenge of playing the course. It is definitely a course to think your way around, and not just blast away.
Floodlit golf is available until 11:00 p.m. in the winter and 12 midnight in the summer to enable keen golfers to maximise their game time during the working week.
As the standard is at most Member’s clubs, The Track Meydan golf does not enforce stringent dress codes and allows a casual and relaxed environment. A fully equipped Clubhouse with a TaylorMade sponsored Golf Shop and the Locker room facilities leave no stone unturned on a golfer’s day out. The 19th hole is one of the best in Dubai at Qube Sports bar with delicious menus to choose from along with international sports programming on its giant cube projection screens.
