This Brunch was recommended to us by friends and as we had family visiting with children we decided to give it a go. It is really different experience, the setting is so peaceful on the grass overlooking the golf course. You can choose to have a table and chairs or picnic blanket, we opted for the latter and as a... More

I could not believe the service and amenities for the price! I made reservations for lunch, with rented shoes, clubs, cart and purchased balls for virtually nothing - less than $200. These fees included a driving range with unlimited ball, a concierge to assist in supplying the bottom-less basket of range balls, and a clubhouse shower room fit for a... More

Challenging course, with a great combination of challenging and forgiving holes......unless you cannot hit is straight everytime (which describes me) but this is my favorite golf course in Dubai.

I played here with a local resident whilst on holiday and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge presented. If you are a high-handicapper you may find this a hugely frustrating course, it requires a lot of thought and percentage golf. It is so tempting on so many holes to take out the driver when an iron will get you in play and... More

I visited a golf playing relative in Dubai and we chose Al Badia as he hadn't played it before and he had a two for one voucher. I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. From the moment we arrived we were treated fantastically by the staff. The clubs were dropped off at reception, the car parked for us and, after paying,... More

A great course with a lot more water than you would expect for a course in the desert. Challenging holes, which demand accurate shot placement and length if you want to get a good score. Great clubhouse and all round value for money if you use a 2 for 1 voucher.
