Description:

Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour Omega Dubai Desert Classic...

Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, was the first all grass championship golf course in the Middle East when it opened in 1988. Taking pride in its 36 holes of world-class golf, the club sports two of the city’s finest must-play courses, the Majlis and the Faldo Course, which is also the only 18 hole course in the region to offer night golf. Both courses combine the natural rolling desert terrain for a serious golfing test, while the signature clubhouse, remains the most eye-catching in the region. The Majlis Course has been presented with numerous accolades over its 25 year history, the most recent of which were its 2012 ranking by Golf World magazine as one of the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in the World’ and its award for ‘Best Course Middle East’ in the Asian Golf Monthly Awards 2010 .

First time night golf at the Faldo Course. Difficult to measure distance, but gps will tell you, and to see the break on the green. But anyway, great experience, with the skyline at night as backdrop. You do not get a good feel how beautiful the course is, but still unforgettable.

It is quality from the moment you drive through the gates. The iconic clubhouse stands in front of you with its restaurants (not overpriced) and well stocked pro shop. Once inside the building the lavish changing rooms await you and then you step onto the first tee of the Majlis course ... home to the Desert Classic. Playing off the... More

This course is world renowned and hosts the dubai open! Services are excellent and so are the amenities. The course has a 9 hole mashi and a complete 18 hole manjilis course. Which is challenging and very well maintained. There are also some beverage smack stalls around the course where you can even get alcohol. Showers and change rooms are... More

Played the Majlis because everyone was raving about it... on arrival was told no buggys so had a pull trolley for 18 holes in 33 degrees heat. Course was poor.. greens not cut and over watered. If you play here do not do it 2 weeks before a tournament as it was not worth half the money. Really disappointing.
