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 .

“What an awesome experience”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

We phoned at 8am and managed to secure a Tee Off time for 9:45 same day. The staff are very helpful. The club is 5 star and we played on the Faldo Course. The course itself was in excellent condition and the carts and clubs brand new. Ice cold water on Tap and every 2nd hole and a cooler with ice fitted on your cart. The views of the city are amazing and the course is not that difficult. A definite must do if you are a keen golfer. Green Fees and cart and club hire amounted to AED750 - well worth it. Great fun.

“Simple layout but nice condition”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

The course is very popular, but not "spectacular" as you may expect.
Course condition was nearly perfect, due also to next LPGA Tour coming.

“Great course- especially at night”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We played the 9 hole course with friends the other evening- fantastic! Nice challenge, well lit for an evening game, and even the occasional wildlife (the birds & fox were very common sights throughout our round). Reasonably priced for Dubai & we highly recommend it for a relaxed round in the evening!
