Eat, drink and shop
Many attractions in Jumeirah Golf Estates can be found in The Clubhouse, which hosts a number of shops and several dining options. Flame Tree Restaurant & Grill is an elegant setting offering indoor and al fresco fine dining, with views across the 18th hole of the Fire Course. For something lighter, Fresca Delicatessen & Café is a casual alternative, serving a breakfast menu, pizzas and desserts. Or, enjoy the all-day-dining international menu at Swirl Bar & Lounge, with indoor and outside seating. The golf club also has somewhere to kick back, grab a drink and watch some sport...golf perhaps? The club serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a choice of inside or terrace tables. Several good shopping areas are within easy reach by car, including Motor City and Arabian Ranches.
Location. Location. Location.
Located next to Sports City and Dubai Production City, JGE is near to the junction of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311) and Al Khail Street (E44), giving residents easy access to Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and the Northern Emirates. Dubai Investment Park is close by and for travellers, Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport can be reached quite quickly by car. Al Barsha and Mall of the Emirates are just 15-minutes’ drive away with other city areas nearby, including Motor City, The Springs, The Greens, Barsha Heights (Tecom), Media City, JLT and Dubai Marina.
Out and about
Joggers, walkers and cyclists can take to the estate’s scenic track that links the community’s parks, lakes and nature strips. Not everyone who lives here is a golfer, but the sport obviously plays a central role in the community. There are two courses: the picturesque parkland of Earth Course is home to DP World Tour Championship, while Fire Course is a classic links-style design. However, if you don’t know your links from your parkland, there are plenty of other things to do in Jumeirah Golf Estates. The Country Club has some impressive facilities to keep its members fit and healthy, including an outdoor pool, kids’ play area, billiards and table tennis. For more active members, there’s a cardio and weight room, a fitness studio and a tennis academy.
Primary to secondary
While there are no schools in JGE, neighbouring Victory Heights in Sports City has four schools and nurseries, with plans underway for a further seven to be built. The Wonder Years Nursery operates on the British EYFS system (Early Years Foundation Stage), while the IDEA ELC nursery school offers the American Creative Curriculum. Victory Heights Primary School adopts the British curriculum, while Bradenton Preparatory School follows the US curriculum and offers nursery, kindergarten primary and intermediate secondary education. Many other options are a short drive away.
