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 .

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.

The Majlis is the original and most iconic course in Dubai. Whilst the course is fantastic, it is the whole experience which sets it apart. It requires a second mortgage but well worth it!!

We played the Faldo Wadi course which is a good test for all handicaps. The course has plenty of water and sand (not always in bunkers) and is in excellent condition. The spike bar has a varied menu and was good enough to attract us back one evening for a meal.

We had the opportunity to see the round 3 of Dubai Desert Classic 2015. The golf course is awesome. The club house is very well maintained and the lounges have great view of the Hole 9 and Hole 18. It was surprising to find out that the club is 26 years old. The sheikhs do everything in style to say... More

We played on the Majis Course in December, right before they closed it to prepare for the Dubai Desert Classic end of January. That meant carts were not allowed (they are included in the green fee, but there was no reduction). I do not mind walking at all - BUT the trolleys they provided were literally last century (hard to... More
