Jumeirah Golf Estates Area Guide

Jumeirah Golf Estates is a collection of 13 luxury estates set around the fairways of two 18-hole golf courses along Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road and next to Dubai Sports City.

The courses, named Fire and Earth, were designed by the renowned Greg Norman and have hosted the Dubai World Championship since 2008.

Two more courses, Water and Wind, may be created in the future along with more residential communities.

What you see now is the first phase of Jumeirah Golf Estates and consists of 13 different residential communities with a total of 1,050 villas. Not all the villas have been completed, but families began moving in at the end of 2013. A year later around half of the properties were ready for occupancy.

The communities around the Fire golf course are named Fireside, Flame Tree Ridge, Juniper Way, Orange Lake, Sienna Lakes, Sienna Views and Valencia Grove. Those around the Earth course are Lime Tree Valley, Olive Point, Sanctuary Falls, Sundials, Whispering Pines and Wildflower.

Seventy five percent of the properties in this gated community overlook the golf courses, and the remainder face lakes and nature strips. The villas themselves have been individually designed and are set in beautifully landscaped streets suitable for family living.

Plans to build a shopping mall and a Carrefour supermarket in the neighbouring International Media Production Zone were announced in 2014. While waiting for that to happen residents need to travel to nearby communities Sports City or Jumeirah Village for local shopping.

Jumeirah Golf Estates Amenities

The villas in Jumeirah Golf Estates are arranged in residential streets surrounding the two golf courses. The whole place is encircled by a jogging and cycling track linking community parks, lakes and nature strips.

The Norman Clubhouse offers all day dining and its bars and leisure facilities are open to golfers and non-golfers alike.

"Whispering Pines"


Positives:   Its like living in the UK, Golf course views and quiet, but with the security.

Negatives:   Current lack of amenities.

Early days for the development, but singularly the best finished house I have had in my life in the Middle East (KSA, Qatar and UAE) - 6 villa/apartments in 5 years, but I've seen hundreds!!! I have been fortunate to live in some beautiful properties, but this is the best. The development is still maturing and this is a quality development suitable for all western expats, especially if you want your very own golf cart :-).
