For those who consider the sport of golf to be their way of life, an ideal residential villa community to consider will be the Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE) in Dubai. Located in the Jebel Ali District, adjacent to Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, this extremely prestigious golf development is surrounded by other popular residential communities like The Green Community, Dubai Sports City, Arabian Ranches and Jumeirah Village.
A congregation of Mediterranean-themed villas amidst breathtaking landscaping enclosed within a secure and gated community aptly describes the upmarket JGE.
The entire project has been planned in four phases. Phase A is ready while Phases B, C and D will be developed in due course. Phase A is a collection of 13 planned residential communities with over 1,000 villa properties ranging from three to six-bedrooms. Seventy-five percent of the properties face the golf courses, while the smaller section faces lakes and green patches.
The golf courses (each designed by a professional golfer) have been further divided into four distinct themes representing elements of life, namely: Fire, Earth, Wind and Water. The Fire theme course and villas depict vibrant colors such as brown and gold, while the Earth theme features fountains. International golf tournaments like the Dubai Masters are often hosted on the Earth course. The Wind and Water courses are under construction, just like the other phases of the golf estates.
Right in the heart of the Earth and Fire courses is the recently inaugurated clubhouse which aims to provide world-class leisure facilities as well as food and beverage options to residents and visitors. Close to the clubhouse is the Country Club which houses a very large swimming pool. Green parks are scattered all over the development with a large children’s play area within the clubhouse itself.
It has been planned that JGE will have its own community center to cater to the day-to-day needs of its residents. However, for the time being, residents have access to the entire development in the adjoining MotorCity, which houses the largest Spinneys in Dubai. Talks of a mall in the vicinity of the project are also underway.
• Jumeirah Golf Estates is surrounded by hilly topography with golf courses, lakes
• Being a premium development, its rental and sales rates are on the higher end
• The community’s clubhouse and country club are currently fully operational
