There are some highlights along the Gulf shores on the back nine. A number of the greens complexes have some interesting runoff areas which makes chipping a premium around here. If there is wind, having the ball funnel off is a very common occurence. One slight downside is that many of the holes have a "resort-ish" feel to them, something I have seen with a number of other Gary Player designs. But, the bottom line is that it is a fun course to play and probably the best beach location in all of Abu Dhabi.
