The UAE’s latest addition hitting the right spot
By Matt Smith
Yas Acres Golf & Country Club is now in full swing, following its inauguration in December and is a fine addition to the UAE’s ever-expanding portfolio of courses.
For the budding golfers in Abu Dhabi and further afield looking for a new challenge, the Fry/Straka-designed nine-hole course offers something for all skill levels, day or night thanks to its fully floodlit set-up.
The par-36 course stretches from 2,554 yards at its shortest to a challenging 3,700 yards, from five different tee areas at each hole, overlooking impressive scenery in the heart of the Yas Acres community, with generous fairways, sizeable greens and plenty of water to keep you on your toes.
Visitors can also refuel at the clubhouse restaurants, work on their swing at the largest driving range in Abu Dhabi, alongside chipping and putting areas, hit the gym, play some padel tennis or relax at the pool.
