My favorite golf course in Dubai and host of the Omega Desert Classic which brings some of the best players in the world together!
The design is very enjoyable and the maintenance top-notch. Hole #8 is the signature hole where you will certainly take a picture of your swing with the Dubai Skyline as a background! Very impressive especially when you compare with images from 30 years ago when there used to be only desert surrounding the golf course.
The clubhouse architecture is also very special. It is done in the style of Bedouin tent which makes it stand out from any clubhouse you have ever seen before.
The club has a new restaurant called Carine which offers French Mediterranean dishes. You can also have lunch at Spike Bar or Jones the Grocer which are also located in the clubhouse.
If you visit Dubai in January, you will most probably see some of the best players on the European Tour practice there. Last time I was there, I had lunch next to Rory McIlroy... not too bad!
