I wouldn't recommend to anybody who is a high handicapper as I think you might not enjoy you round. The course was is... More

AlBadia has some authentic cuisine in its outlets! All day breakfast is filling & appetizing at the same time! A quiet place away from city"s life yet in the city

Great place to get your golf on. Nice restaurants, great staff. Been using the facility since July last year and it's difficult to find a fault there.

superb course, perhaps not the best conditioned course in Dubai, but one of the most memorable and highly challenging. Almost every hole is memorable & low handicap golfers will love the challenge
