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 . « less

We played the Majlis on the 11th september, we were made to feel extremely welcome by all the staff. The course was excellent although the greens were a little slow. The extreme heat made it difficult for me but my partner played really well. We were given cold flannels, and there are water stations every few holes,which heped to cool... More

Never have I lost so many balls, but enjoyed it a great deal. Started at 6.50 pm and played the front 9. OUCH, you need to be accurate or this course eats you up. It definitely eats your golf balls. The greens were a little slow but it was very humid, playing on a Friday evening also meant the constant... More

The choice of the Majlis Championship layout, or the Faldo layout gives the golfer a choice and both courses are different. The service is as... More

Lift your game booking staff when the question is asked of you. Know whats going on with your own maintenance program . Every golfers nightmare cored... More

I have played Emirates numerous times and always have food after the round with a few beers. Great location and great food. Even pop over for lunch, it's worth the trip.

Nice course to enjoy once sun is down. The restaurant (buffet) is really good. No need to be a perfect golfer but not an easy course for average players...
