Attraction details
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 .

“Night golf ?????????”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

Hubby played a round of golf under floodlights. Surreal or what? Thoroughly enjoyable although if doing this don't expect to play to your handicap - only for fun and the changing sunset views.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

While working at the Burj Khalifa as the Facility Manager, I went to the course. Great experience on this very challenging courses, where all the Giants of golf played. Who would expect it to be cheap ? It's not, but on the other hand I've played many MORE expensive course, less beautiful, or challenging.
I enjoyed every minute out there, and enjoyed most of the times a great meal after a round of golf. De kitchen is very good, although not an elite restaurant.

“Dismal dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Had dinner at the club with friends. Nice location but the menu was all over the place. Looks like they were trying to use up the Thanksgiving stuff they hadn't sold. Service was confused as well.
