An eighteen-hole course, a nine-hole academy course, clubhouse, golf academy and floodlit practice facilities, set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf—the course combines unparalleled visual glory with the thrill of golf’s ultimate test.

Beautiful place! We went for a drink only & sat outside watching the sunset overlooking the golf course & lake. They serve alcohol. Theres a lovely golf gift shop but its top quality so expect top prices. You don't have to be a member to get in or even be playing golf. TIP: This is on the free YAS Shuttle... More

This is easily a course you could play each week. The wind and greens toughen up the course, but the special part is the superb condition it is kept in. Clubhouse facilities offer all you need before and after your round.

Course is fantastic, very well laid out to both playable for the average golfer yet with a challenge. Dont worry if you dont want to bother bringing all your clubs, etc, everything you could want is available to rent there. Course is laid out like a old school links course you would find in Scotland, you almost feel as if... More

This is one of the best golf courses i have ever played. First 3 holes boring, but then you get to see the sea and the rest of the course (especially the back 9 are stunning). Great condition and marshals to keep play moving. Club house also great...

We've been here a few times and it's the kind of bar/ restaurant you can go and find something to eat and drink when you just are close by. You don't make a special trip to the Yas links restaurant but sometimes you fancy something relaxing after a trip to Yas Mall and that's what we were doing on a... More

For a beautiful scenic location to play golf, Yas Links has it all. Lcoated on the coast there are plenty of beautiful views when you go round to play. The course is best suited for mid to good handicappers and not beginners. Facilities are excellent with a great clubhouse and changing room, pro shop, driving range and putting range. Not... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Yas Links. Our green keepers work hard to ensure that the course is in the best condition that it can possibly be in and it sounds like you really enjoyed it! Whilst our Championship course is suited for more experienced golfers, our par 3 Academy course is the perfect place... More

The level of service, facilities and course at Yas links for me marginally outperforms the rest of the courses, all good 4 stars plus, we played in this area to take top marks. From the moment of arrival to departure the process was well coordinated by well trained efficient and friendly staff. The course is a great challenge and immaculately... More

In the middle of my stay & play package booked with The Westin Abu Dhabi Resort, several golfers recommended I take the time to play golf at Yas Links on Yas Island. The course is very well designed, plays like a true links course, and the greens are in great shape considering we're mid-September already. After my round at Saadiyat... More

A very well manicured course. Played off the back tees to add some spice to the game. Thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the Par 3's over water. Can appreciate why it is rated highly in the Middle East. If you live in the ME you have to make the effort to play here, you will not be disappointed.
