Coming Soon… Yas Acres

Generous landing areas off the tee, the sumptuous, shadow-enhanced fairway ripples that are a trademark of her big sister, sizeable greens and plenty of water to keep you honest.

Those are the initial takeaways from the first images from Yas Acres, the long-anticipated sister course to Yas Links Abu Dhabi.

Details, including official opening dates, are being kept close to the club’s chest but know that the images here are sneak peeks of the 1st and 9th holes, the latter captured under lights. Both are par 5s, 544 and 535 yards from the black championship tees respectively, and likewise rated stroke index 2 and 1. There are five tee grounds for each hole at Yas Acres with the 1st playing as short as 399 yards and the 9th 383 yards.
