On opening this baker finch was a tough son of a gun, with tiny fairways small greens and a lot of horrible yellow gorse that swallowed your pro v1. Years later after a few water problems the course is an absolute joy and a must play. Food and beers are pretty good too, all in all this a good level... More

Sadly the downstairs bar/restaurant and outside area is closed at the moment having a refurb,... More

We visited as a group of ten and were pleased that the restaurant was open and selling alcohol during the day during Ramadan. The main restaurant was closed for renovation so we went upstairs to a pleasant area. We all had nachos to start which were ok but not as good as normal. For the main course myself and my... More

Lovely lunch in the Belgian restaurant Maison Mathis which was laid back, tasty food, friendly service and reminded me of my days living in Brussels.

With blissful views over the 18th hole, this Golf Club is a firm family favourite with locals. The staff try their best and although service can be patchy when they're very busy on weekends, its still a great place because of the overall fab atmosphere

We were in Dubai visiting family, visited this club only for an afternoon break and took tea on the terrace overlooking the 18th green. A very pleasant hour and decent cuppa! Although we didn't eat, the menu looked fairly interesting and the golfing facilities excellent.
