The Emirates Golf Club was quite a ways away from the city when the club opened in the Eighties along the highway to Abu Dhabi. The site was a gift of a member of Dubai's royal family, who stipulated that the native vegetation should be maintained as far as possible. Today the Emirates is an oasis of golf amid the development that has carried like the desert wind across the sand. The flagship course at Emirates Golf Club, The Majlis championship course is a challenging par 72, 7,301-yard layout. The Majlis course has developed a worthy reputation worldwide as a testing layout for even the best golfers. The course features hundreds of indigenous species of flora and fauna, beautifully complemented by meandering fairways and seven fresh and saltwater lakes. The Majlis ("place of gathering" in Arabic) was the first full course here, and it is still a first-rate golfing experience. The course, designed by American Karl Litten, is usually home to the Dubai Desert Classic, a competition that attracts the world's best for the great weather and superb facilities as much as for the quantity of the purse. The fine clubhouse, done up in the style of a Bedouin tent, offers fine dining, swimming, tennis, a gym and a spa. The Majlis course has the honour of hosting the European PGA Tour Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Ladies' European Tour sanctioned Omega Dubai Ladies Masters annually.

The course is in superb shape. It is long with thick rough and the greens are very "grainy" and fast and nevertheless each year it's been won over -20! The design made by Peter Harradine is still up to date, the Majlis at the Emirates is one of his masterpiece with Abu Dhabi.

A nice and interesting golf course. But not the course itself makes the experience something special, it's the location and view of the skyline which makes this old gentleman so charming. Even there are more challenging courses out here in Dubai it's a must to play this course at least once during your visit.

The original and probably still the best...but it’s going to lose out to the new Trump International Dubai. The Majlis can still keep its status if the European Tour and LET continue to use the course to host their prestigious Desert Classics and the fact that the course is right in the heart of the vibrant Marina area will always mean it’s a busy place to get a tee time. If you’re in the area it’s a must play. The layout is excellent. The clubhouse has recently been refurbished to include a new food and beverage area and the service is excellent. As for the course, it was being prepared for the LET event at the beginning of December and the greens were not running as fast as they could. The rough was up compared to what’s it’s usually like ahead of one of their showcase tournaments and there was some working taking place across the course but it didn’t really interfere with play. The range is close to the 1st tee and it’s off mats. They have the Peter Cowen academy which is first class but it’s not convenient to use as a warm up area if you don’t have much time to spare as it’s a buggy ride away. If you’re visiting around the tone of the Desert Classic, a trip to the academy could be worth while to see some of the very best get a lesson from Pete and Mike. I was there to see Graeme McDowell work with Pete and he didn’t look like he needed much fixing :-)
