Owner description: Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, was the first all grass championship golf course in the Middle East when it opened in 1988. Taking pride in its 36 holes of world-class golf, the club sports two of the city’s finest must-play courses, the Majlis and the Faldo Course, which is also the only 18 hole course in the region to offer night golf. Both courses combine the natural rolling desert terrain for a serious golfing test, while the signature clubhouse, remains the most eye-catching in the region. The Majlis Course has been presented with numerous accolades over its 25 year history, the most recent of which were its 2012 ranking by Golf World magazine as one of the ‘Top 100 Golf Courses in the World’ and its award for ‘Best Course Middle East’ in the Asian Golf Monthly Awards 2010 .

“Dream Course.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

My partner played golf at the Emirates when we had a 2 night stop over on the way to Europe. The communication with the booking (via Internet/email) was very fast and efficient.
Once there he was treated very well. Had several people helping him locate the Pro Shop, as well as assisting with rental clubs.
After hitting some practice balls he was escorted to the 1st tee and played in his words "One of the best" courses.

“Doesnt Get Better than This.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

For anyone who tries to play golf it doesnt get better than this. No matter which course you play you are assured of great conditions and facilities. Green fees include practice balls and buggy hire for the day. The resevations team are great and will try to pair you up with golfers of a similair standard.

This is just so good its great value to follow in the foot steps of all the great golfers over the years. The pro shop is well stocked and reasonable. Dont forget to have your photo taken with the Dubai Dessert Classic Trophy that is by the pro shop.

When you finish your round your clubs are taken away and cleaned in the changing rooms they even clean your golf shoes. If you dont take your own clubs the hire Clubs are almost new Pings.

“Good round in pleasant surroundings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I played here and found helpfulness of the staff excellent. Our cart was brought to us - two brand new sets of Ping G10 on the back. Clubhouse does a pleasant snack afterwards - burgers sandwiches or whatever. Good value as well - just leave those clubs at home.
