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...

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.
