What a lovely way to spend the day! The picnic brunch at Al Badia can be enjoyed on low tables on padded mats or at a table with chairs which is what we opted for as we had a little one who is easier to manage in a high chair! The setting is beautiful. It was our first time here... 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.

A truly magnificent facility that is reasonably priced. The course has a fair amount of water on it and the landing areas can be tight. So you need to properly manage the course to score. My mates and I had a great time and did not lose many balls. Overall experience was A+.

This is a great golf course which would be a challenge for anyone. The greens run true and are very fast and there is water in play on many holes. The service is great and we enjoyed two great rounds of golf - if only the scoring could have been better!
