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

Stayed in Arabian Ranches with friends who are residents and visited the restaurant on our last night in Dubai as they recommended it. Really nice setting over looking the course, very friendly and helpful staff and brilliant food. Really enjoyed a massive burger and a couple of brilliantly cooled beers and left wishing we'd discovered it earlier but will certainly... More

I played regularly at the Arabian Ranches when we lived in Dubai 2006-08, so it was good to return again and play this challenging course. This is a true desert course, with whispy grass for rough, before you hit real sand, and the fairways are tight - some are very tight! Quality of greens seem even better than before, more... More

After a good play of golf or even if you want just a good dinner this place will serve excellent tuna fillet or pasta or even a juicy steak along with some cold beer.

Played here several times during the past months, and have to say that the course condition is getting better and better eventhough its summer, side construction is mostly complete so there is no loud working sounds disturbing. Course has good speed of greens and no water hazards, just lots and lots of sand...So keep on the fairways!!

Before I went there, this golf course had many construction places and it was almost impossible to play on the course, and it was more torture than golf as the view was just horrible. When I went there this June, the course was much cleaner and almost no constructions at all! The restaurants are okay but takes a long time... More

After reading some negative comments on the web about this golf course, I booked at other courses. But when my meetings ended sooner, and since it was closed to my hotel, I decided to show up and try to play. The golf wasn't crowded and I was able to play alone under 3 hours after passing only one threesome! Saw... More

We have seen many changes over the years within the Ranches and not all for the better. The ranches Golf Club has not seen so many changes over the years and I mean that in a positive way. The opening of a new Belgian restaurant is long overdue and a welcome addition. The golf club house restaurant is good for... More

Absolute amazing service staff. The food is, well... so lala. The menu hasn't changed in ages and if the head chef wants to compete with Maison Mathis next door, he has to pull his socks up. WAY UP! If you want help, contact my wife.
