Emirates Golf Club

Known as the ‘Desert Miracle’ the Emirates Golf Club is an oasis of green in a city built up from the sand. This course was the first all grass championship course built in the Middle East and is quite a spectacular site. Not only has it won many awards such as being voted one of the top 100 courses in the world by Golf World Magazine, it is the perfect reprise for travelers wanting to enjoy the outdoors. Come and putt on their fantastic greens, improve your game and meet fellow golf enthusiasts.

Golfing in Dubai

At Emirates Golf Club you will be able to challenge yourself at one of the two 18 hole courses named Majlis and Falso. There is also a par 3 course for beginners and those wanting to have a short game to practice their hits. Majlis is the most popular course, being 72 par and stretching over 7,301 yards. The area is beautifully decorated with desert flora and lakes, as the landowner requested that the unique landscape be kept when building the club. If you would like to golf once the sun has gone down, then the Falso course has floodlights, which is also perfect for afternoon games that run a little longer than planned. This course is also 72 par and is slightly larger than Majlis.

A champion of a course

The courses at the club opened in 1988 and have since been host to many international competitions. The European Tour, Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Ladies Masters are allheld here each year. With such an incredible backdrop of skyscrapers against the blue sky, it is no wonder that this club is also one of choice for top golfers from around the world.  If you are planning on spending some time walking around the greens, then book yourself comfortable, stylish accommodation nearby.
