CHAMPIONSHIP COURSE OVERVIEW
Although The Address Montgomerie Dubai has evolved into one of the Middle East's most luxurious
and desirable golfing destinations in recent times, the key to its success has always
remained contingent upon the quality of the golf course that would become the focal
point for one of Dubai's most exclusive residential communities, Emirates Hills.
- 265 acres covered in total
- 143 acres of turf
- 49 acres of lakes
- 93 acres of gardens
- 81 large bunkers
The Address Montgomerie Dubai's championship golf course was designed by Colin Montgomerie
in association with Desmond Muirhead. The course covers 265 acres which consist
of 123 acres of turf, 49 acres of man-made lakes (a total of 14 lakes), 93 acres
of landscaped gardens and is scattered with 81 large bunkers.
The course provides the player with undulating "links land" style fairways with
generous landing areas which challenge and intrigue all levels of player. Although
large in size, the greens can be very misleading, especially as they are consistently
rolling above 9.5feet. Plenty of shape throughout the greens can result in some
very trying putts.
One of the signature holes is the par 5 fourth, dubbed the Snake hole for its saddleback
fairway which doglegs towards the green, with two bunkers behind forming the eyes
of the snake.
Further on, the par 5 ninth, with water down the left, is a tough finish to the
opening half. The par 3 thirteenth, a hole designed in the shape of the UAE, boasts
a 360 degree teeing area around an island fairway and green, allowing for a completely
different golf hole to be played every time. However, it is the par 5 eighteenth
that offers a more classic test.
At 656 yards it is a monster and, with water protecting the front of the green, it
defies even the best player to hit the green in two.
The Address Montgomerie Dubai offers two very different seasons of golf. During winter,
the golf course is over-seeded whilst the summer season has the course back to a
full stand of Bermuda grass. The turf growth is vigorous during the summer resulting
in a very challenging rough.
At The Address Montgomerie Dubai, our mission is to present and maintain the golf course
at a standard comparable to the best-golf courses in the world and to cater for
golfers from all corners of the globe. This is accomplished through standards and
practices developed and implemented by the Troon Golf Agronomy management team.
