Nice layout, clubhouse and facilities are brilliant the only problem is that sand, it's really soft and is difficult to hit out of, not the best course in the middle east, a bit expensive for the course.

We've been to dinner with friends and they families there a number of times. Great menu with something for everyone. In the late fall and winter, it's a lot of fun to sit outside and enjoy dinner and a few drinks. Kids can get up and move around without disturbing people. Food is very good. Ribs, butter chicken, and burgers... More

Went to the Spike bar for breakfast and enjoyed the Full English Breakfast. Choice of scrambled, fried or poached eggs. Soft or cooked through. Came with tomato, mushrooms, baked beans, very tasty sausage and bacon, toast and English Tiptree Preserve marmalade. All very nicely presented. Service was quite slow but we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter. Good... More
