Built around the famous Fire and Earth Golf courses, you can find the villas of Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE). It is here that the DP World Tour Championship of Dubai is hosted. The gated community provides villas with unique constructions while the natural landscape and the abundance of amenities cater to a family-oriented lifestyle. The JGE area is the perfect combination of modern life with the wonders of nature surrounding you. Although the area has been around for quite some time now, it is still possible to find new off-plan projects in this neighborhood. So let’s take a look at what it means to live in one of the most coveted areas of Dubai, namely the Jumeirah Golf Estates.
JGE is a golf-style living area that is located only 5 minutes from Sheikh Muhammed Bin Zayed Road (E311). Neighboring districts include Dubai Sports City, Dubai Production City, and Dubai Sports City, with the latter providing many sports and leisure activities that are popular with the residents of JGE. You also don’t have to go far to visit Dubai Investment Park, Jumeirah Village Triangle (JVT) and the Green Village.
Nearby roads include Sheikh Muhammed Bin Zayed Road Jebel Ali - Al Hibab Road.

Jumeirah Golf Estates consists of 16 unique communities that overlook the 2 golf courses Earth and Fire. The Earth side covers 606 villas dotted around 6 communities, which are inspired by Mediterranean architecture. The remaining 438 villas can be found in the 7 communities that are placed around the Fire golf course. This part got its inspiration from the desert and the matching colors that can be found there. The villas in the area have 3-6 bedrooms and each unit has its own individual garden. The Al Andalus enclave also offers apartments and townhouses, situated on a gorgeous hill. Although many parts of JGE have already been completed some time ago, there are still new developments going on, giving homebuyers and investors the opportunity to buy new off-plan projects in JGE.
Public transport is absent in the area with the closest metro station taking 25 minutes by car and the nearest bus stop being in Dubai Production City. However, the large majority of people residing in JGE owns a vehicle of some kind and with easy access to Sheikh Zayed Road, you can easily get to any part of Dubai. Every villa comes with a parking garage while there is also ample opportunity to park your car on the streets. Visitors of JGE can also park their car in the parking of the country club.

Besides the impressive golf courses, the JGE area doesn’t provide much when it comes to amenities. As there is only one supermarket, you will most likely have to leave the territory for your grocery shopping. At the main clubhouse, there are bar and dining options but if you are looking for something fancier you will have to go to one of the neighboring districts such as Dubai Studio City, Dubai Production Cit or Dubai Sports City. You will probably also end up here when you need medical care or a school for your offspring. The lack of amenities might be frustrating at times but it also adds to the peaceful setting of the JGE area.
Many areas within the JGE district have already matured, providing the sense of a real community. However, there are also still areas that are under construction and therefore there it is also possible to buy new off-plan properties in this popular area of Dubai. Here are some of the most in-demand off-plan projects in JGE at the moment.
