Rave Review: Shipnuck On New Trump Dubai Course

Calling it "one helluva course" The Knockdown's Alan Shipnuck gives the course and clubhouse at Trump Dubai a rave review.

Shipnuck writes:

The grand opening of the club is still two weeks away, but a nonpartisan visit on Wednesday revealed a course that traverses highly imaginative (man-made) terrain, boasting a thrilling variety of risk-reward holes, interesting greens and gloriously firm turf that promotes the ground game and accentuates the many challenging runoffs around the putting surfaces. There is nary a waterfall, Roman statuary or other hokum that blights lesser properties in the Trump golf empire. No, the President has created something that is – dare we say it? —understated.

The story also includes a short slideshow of some course photos, and a very positive review from Graeme McDowell.
