You will find yourself seated outside on comfortable picnic tables at floor level, with cushions and umbrellas providing the comfort for a lazy afternoon. The service was ok, sporadic but... More

The staff was friendly, and made me feel like a member even though I am not. The course has A great deal of water and bunkers! I almost got my first hole-in-one! Loved playing here.

The picnic brunch here during the weedend is fab. The weather in Feb is ideal for a picnic and the basket they welcomed us with set the mood. The food in the basket is well thought out and the barbeque/dessert stations has enough variety to satisfy most (not for vegetarians though). The live music is bound to put you in... More

An excellent facility with some very scenic views of Dubai's skyline. The golf coarse is excellently designed and has some spectacular views of the greens and the inbuilt water bodies. Located in a relatively quiet part of town, this is a perfect place to watch the sun set... Recommended.
