Earth Course

The Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai is a masterpiece of golf course design, seamlessly blending natural beauty with world-class facilities. Crafted by the renowned golf course architect Greg Norman, the Earth Course stands out for its meticulously manicured fairways, challenging water hazards, and striking white bunkers that contrast sharply against the verdant landscape.
