For anyone looking at moving to Dubai and thinking of joining a Golf Club, look no further than Arabian Ranches GC. The course set-up for this year's Annual Club Championship was testing but fair. The membership here is the friendliest, most supportive and social that you will find anywhere, as evidenced by the number of early players who stayed around... More

one of the best price performance golf courses in Dubai with a charming club house and an equally charming staff. it´s a real desert course with one beautiful lake but no water hazards. for the ambitious golfer who wants to play outside Dubai´s busy places but doesn´t want to travel too far. The staff is working on improving the cart... More

My experience started off with meeting some one for lunch in the restaurant which was pleasant enough and the burger was good. Reception was nice, allowing me to walk on without a tee time.

This course is not as tough as some of the big name courses in Dubai but is still a very enjoyable test. The course does not have thick rough but relies on sandy edges to provide the penalty for drives and second shots which are off line. The clubhouse is good and the restaurant is a pleasant place to spend... More

In my opinion still one of the most chilling places with its lovely terrace facing the green. Weekdays are various programs such as Mexican Night or Quiz Night which is very popular. The staff is very friendly however could be slightly better organized. Food is great - a little more changes would do good, but perhaps I am there to... More

this was the next big thing when it was built but has been overtaken a little by newer courses since. it is now more of a local / safe bet type of option. the main restaurant in the clubhouse is pretty dreadful - suitable really only for a drink. we have been in UAE for 10 years and give it...
