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 .

The Emirates Golf Club is pretty unique today in the UAE, in that it has two full 18 hole courses to play on, and one of them (Faldo) is flood lit for nighttime golf also. Both are great courses, and the Majlis obviously hosts the European tour every year so playing on it reminds you of a lot of shots... More

So, Im not a golfer as I said so this review is about the facility itself. It is a very well finished facility, always well kept and clean.

very nice par 3 course. quite challenging. unfortunately, unusually for Dubai, there was not much control. a very slow 4 ball in front of us slowed everyone down. when playing in the summer, you have to get on with it as you can only stand the heat for so long. abandoned our round after 4 holes and retreated to the...

Is it fair to not give that fifth star for something that the Emirates Golf Club has no control over? Like the temperature? Probably not. It was a very nice golf course and club, with a good restaurant for lunch afterward. They also have locker rooms and showers, which you will use if the temperatures get as warm as they... More

My friends and I play every week under the floodlights on the Faldo course. The last couple of weeks have seen the greens under quite severe maintenance which is not conducive to good putting and is really quite exasperating, especially when you consider that there is no reduction in the price to reflect the very poor quality of the course....

Played the Par 3 course with my 14 year old boy and was very impressed with the course. Firstly it was good value for playing at such as prestigious venue, secondly the quality and condition of the course was excellent. Holes ranged from 100 yards to 190 yards and could have graced any 18 hole course.

Played The Majlis course, excellent facility, staff, track, greens, fairways and tee boxes. Must play in Dubai, I enjoyed the Earth course at Jumeirah estates just a little more, however both courses are equally amazing.

Played the Faldo course this week, which was in excellent condition. Practice facilities were very good, with mats that ensure alignment and ball striking was sorted before getting to the first tee. The course itself is not as long as some others but makes you think all the way round about club selection and ball positioning, and as a result... More

This course is a good test but not too tough. A well thought out course and a pleasure to play. The mixture of desert scrub, lush fairways and lightning quick greens added to a backdrop of the Dubai skyline makes for a sometimes surreal experience. One which will stay with you.
