The Dunes Golf Course in the Dubai Sports City is in its final stages of completion, and is all set for play towards the end of the year.
The course is officially being planned for inauguration during December 2007, so that there will be sufficient time for the course to mature before its launch.
The infrastructure that was required for supporting the 211 acre site is now all ready. The course has been supplied with 50kms of piping to provide irrigation, supported by a pump station that has the capacity to supply more than two million gallons of water every eight hours, and various other necessary amenities.
The Dunes is an eighteen-hole signature golf course that is designed by Ernie Els, and is expected to be the central point of the Victory Heights in the Dubai Sports City.
