Emirates Golf Club

Emirates Golf Club

Established in 1988, Emirates Golf Club was the first grass course in the region. Emirates Golf Club's Majlis Course is the proud host of the annual Omega Dubai Desert Classic and the Omega Dubai Ladies Classic. Through its premier facilities including the Majlis and Faldo Courses and the Peter Cowen Academy Dubai, Emirates Golf Club remains at the forefront of golfing development in the region. Through its mix of casual and fine-dining restaurants including a brand new Spike Sports Bar & Terrace, carine, Jones the Grocer, along with a comprehensive swimming, fitness, tennis and padel tennis facilities, Emirates Golf Club is an all-encompassing leisure hub.

The Faldo Course

Open day and night, Emirates Golf Club's second championship golf course, which opened in 1996, was named 'The Wadi', taken from the Arabic word for 'valley'. Redesigned in 2005 by golf legend and six-time major winner Nick Faldo, the course now combines a stunning visual design with the nuances and challenges of any championship course in just the right measure, providing visitors an exceptionally enjoyable golfing experience.

The new course was re-named 'The Faldo' when it re-opened in October 2006. A par-72, the course has proved to be as popular as its predecessor and lures players to the challenge of its 7,052 yards day or night thanks to incorporated LED floodlights throughout the course.

The Majlis Course

The flagship course at Emirates Golf Club, The Majlis championship course is a challenging par 72, 7,301-yard layout. Designed by Florida-based course architect Karl Litten, the original 18 holes were built in and around the dunes of a beautiful site on the edge of the city of Dubai, donated by His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, on whose instructions the desert flora was maintained in its natural state.

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.
