Description:

Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour Omega Dubai Desert Classic...

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 .

Although we do not play golf, we have been coming to the Spike Bar for 6 years now. We enjoy the peace and quiet of its location, along with its great food and drinks selection. The service is second to none. Particular mention goes to Rias and his wonderful staff, Shafras, Bernard, Acel, Sheryl, Jonalisa, Eddie, Raymond, Donald, Remi, Gladys,... More

My daughter is a member here so brought us for a day round the pool. Despite being the weekend it was very quiet with only another few people there. Great place of calm in the centre of the city with the Marina skyscrapers towering in the near distance. Beautiful pool with swim up bar. Good facilities available in terms of... More

Dubai desert classic was a great day or with a lot of things today between watching the golfers. The food trucks were present with a lot to offer. Companies offering freebies as well which is always a hit for families and groups. A few competitions for hole in one. The weather was horrible how ever the day was highly enjoyable... More

First time night golf at the Faldo Course. Difficult to measure distance, but gps will tell you, and to see the break on the green. But anyway, great experience, with the skyline at night as backdrop. You do not get a good feel how beautiful the course is, but still unforgettable.

It is quality from the moment you drive through the gates. The iconic clubhouse stands in front of you with its restaurants (not overpriced) and well stocked pro shop. Once inside the building the lavish changing rooms await you and then you step onto the first tee of the Majlis course ... home to the Desert Classic. Playing off the... More
