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 .

Took hubby and kids to last day of Dubai Classics. Lovely venue-very clean and hospitable. Got front row seats in the stand on the 18th green and had a great view of the event. Lots of pop up tents with merchandise and food.

Loved the course, the layout, the greens, the maintenance...and the views!! Front nine has water everywhere. Back nine is more desert/scrub land. As a single figure handicapper it was a great challenge - accuracy off the tee is key. The only downside was the 5h 20m round! I was teamed up with 3 Germans playing off 36 handicap. Needless to...

Having attended the 4 days of the Dubai Desert Classic I then played on the Faldo course on Monday - a tougher course than the Majlis ! Green Fees are extortionate and I needed to hire clubs too so the overall 'experience' was a rip off ! I understand that green fees are always very high and thus made difficult... More

What a superbly run event. Easily the best on the European Tour. Easily as accessible on the train system. Loads to do for families. Great food and atmosphere. This was my 2nd visit and it gets better every year. Definitely going next year. Brilliant event and a credit to the administration who organise, staff and volunteers.

Played Majlis on recent trip to Dubai. Good course with some interesting holes. Arrival process, practice range and start was relaxed and well organised. Pace of play quite slow as course busy. Food after play was good. Overall a very nice club and course.
