I'd been to Ranches golf club during the week for their business lunch. Which was terrific value and really delicious. I took my husband there on a Saturday at 1130am for their Sunday equivalent roast . Nothing wrong with the food however the drunken, swearing idiots at the bar representing Scotland, England, Wales was cringe worthy. Seriously - people trying... More

Went here on Saturday after playing the Els Club. Like chalk and cheese. The facilities were good, but not a mark on the Els, plus the course wasn't as good either, that matched with the fact that fees were higher?? Can't say I was impressed, but the course staff were reasonable and accommodating. For me the course lets this down,... More

Went for the late breakfast buffet this morning. We enjoyed the setting, looking out over the terrace and golf club. The restaurant was quiet early on when we arrived, not many diners around, perhaps it is better patronised later in the morning. The water from the drinks machine was not hot enough to make a cup of tea. The teabag... More

I had visited the golf club last week and had an unsuccessful trip to the restaurant , so complained and posted to trip advisor. With days the management had reacted and invited us back for a complimentary breakfast. We were welcomed t the door, and the executive chef Dermot made himself known to us.

We have played here several times over the last 8 years visiting Dubai and stopped going a couple of years ago after disturbance caused by major earthworks.

As a member I come here often and the service has steadily got worse , . It culminated in not being able to get a bacon roll because it has passed 11am. Hardly the end of the world.
