Built as a true 18 hole, par 72, desert style grass course, a signature course designed by Ian Baker-Finch in association with Nicklaus Design. Miss the immaculate grass of the fairways and greens and you enter the sandy waste, with its indigenous shrubs and bushes. Within the Clubhouse are 11 luxurious Guest Rooms with spectacular views overlooking either the Golf Course or the Lake.

We played this course the Monday after the Dubai Desert Classic. While having breakfast we bumped into Robert Karlson who stayed and practices there during the tournament. Breakfast was very good. There is an excellent range beside the first tee. The course has a lot of sandy waste areas bordering the fairways especially on the front nine. The course was... More

Among the best, but not the best golf course at Dubai ! The golf course has a proper hotel with a cafetaria.

I can't comment about the golf course as I only went there for lunch, but the food was very good and the service friendly. Also reasonably priced for the location.

Arabian Ranches Golf Club was the only golf course that dissapointed me when I was visiting Dubai. It has very narrow fairways and the sand a.k.a. waste ares start almost right away. Too much waste areas for my taste.

Like many courses in the UAE, the conditions here are almost pristine - immaculately manicured fairways, green greens. The previous problems of water logging has been removed. New GPS's and carts as of end 2015. Shower facilities and the club house is a great plus to cap the overall experience.
