About the area
Placed adjacent to the Emirates Road and behind the International Media Production Zone this four course golf estate is set to provide the finest golf estate living in the region. Catering for golf enthusiasts and those enjoy the tranquil and green surroundings that the courses provide, the project will host a series of developments, all styled with a Mediterranean theme. The location provides easy and fast access to the city of Dubai as well as to the other Emirates along the Emirates Road. The four courses are named after the so called Elements of Life, Fire, Earth, Wind and Water and each is uniquely landscaped giving them their own distinctive looks. Each course has been designed by a professional golfer with the Earth and Fire courses designed by Greg Norman, the Wind course designed by Sergio Garcia, Pete Dye and Greg Norman and the Water course designed by Vijay Singh. Wind and Water course have only been conceptualised and construction has not been started, following the global financial recession. The Earth and Fire courses have been completed and most of the developments and already under construction with some looking to complete in the second quarter of 2010. The Earth course will have six developments with a total of 606 villas and the Fire course has seven proposed developments with a projected 438 villas. The developments range from small, 33 villas, to large, 158 villa, but most of them fall in the middle. All the leisure facilities for the Earth and Fire courses will form part of the Norman Clubhouse, located in the centre of the project between the two courses. The clubhouse will feature an exclusive hotel, a luxurious spa, an array of signature restaurants and shops, a golf academy, a tennis academy and a world class fitness centre.
