|Description||Al Badia Golf Resort is one of the exciting components of the Dubai Festival City mixed use development. Dubai Festival City sees a golf course within a residential community,Al Badia Golf Resort is to have iconic clubhouse and academy overlooking the 9th and 18th greens and spectacular waterfalls.
The Al Badia Golf Course has eleven lakes of varying sizes and several smaller streams, all feeding water down to Dubai Creek. ‘Rivers of Sand’ have also being created to cast contrasting shadows, which fall across the course as the sun sets.’The academy’s elevated public areas will offer magnificent night views of both Dubai city and the golf course.’ said Phil McArthur, Director Leasing & Marketing, Dubai Festival City.The clubhouse is designed in a wrapping form of golden roofs, stone and blue glass culminating in a central atrium, where an interior oasis is planned. There will be extensive water features throughout. The lower roofs sweep around the terrace providing shade and the use of palm trees perfectly matches the Al Badia theme – which translates ‘Land Of The Bedouins.’
|Reviews||This golf course is a stunning new course to add to the Emirates and Dubai Creek golf courses also situated in Dubai. It is always making you think about whether you take the easy option or to be brave and take the 210 yard drive over the water. This is by far the best golf course I have ever played and I think it will compete with Emirates and Dubai Creek in the near future.|
