When the Emirates Golf Club was established in 1988, it was the first all grass championship course in the Gulf region, and was dubbed ‘the desert miracle'. Since then, the Emirates has been at the forefront as Dubai has flourished as a golf destination, and is home to two outstanding championship courses and a 9 hole par 3 course.

Majlis Course

The Majlis is the Emirates' original layout, but it remains one of the most challenging in the region, and hosts the world's best professionals for the Dubai Desert Classic every year. The idyllic holes created by designer Karl Litten are carved into the great swathes of sandy wasteland, and combine to produce a 7,185 yard championship course of the finest standard and the most dramatic character.

2014 Omega Dubai Desert Classic

Stephen Gallacher produced a tremendous back-nine fightback to become the first player to successfully defend the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. The 39-year-old Scot finished at 16-under par, one clear of Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo, with Romain Wattel and Brooks Koepka a further shot back in joint third. After firing an opening round 63, Rory McIlroy’s closing 74 saw him finish four behind Gallacher in tied ninth, while Tiger Woods finished at six-under (T41).

What the pro's say: 

"I always enjoy spending time at the club whether it's during the Dubai Desert Classic or when I'm holidaying with my family in Dubai.  My greatest memory of the Emirates Golf Club was in 2001 when I won the Dubai Desert Classic playing alongside Tiger.  I look forward to returning soon." – Thomas Bjorn

"It's incredible. When I first played here in 1989, the Emirates Golf Club was right out in the desert and now - as you see with the skyscrapers all around it - it's right in the middle of town.” – Barry Lane

Faldo Course

Since Nick Faldo completed his comprehensive refurbishment of the Wadi Course, it has deservedly stood side by side with the more prestigious Majlis layout. Now stretched to a wearying 7,328 yards, the Wadi challenges both ball striking and creativity. The putting surfaces are extremely challenging, while the ever-present expanses of water can quickly upend your scorecard. Always in terrific condition, the Wadi is now well worth playing during your trip to the awesome Emirates Club.

The impressive clubhouse at the Emirates is designed to resemble a Bedouin tented village, and is a reminder of the region's humble origins.

Signature hole- No. 8 (Majlis Course): 

Par 4, 459 yards (Black), SI 3

The spectacular 8th hole is a real favourite amongst many of the pros. In fact, so much so that Justin Rose considers it to be in his top 9 holes in the world. At stroke index 3, the hole is challenging and plays long due to its dogleg right and uphill fairway. From the tee, the golfer is greeted with the magnificent view of skyscrapers ahead, and these can be used as a reference to the line of the tee shot. The green is both small and fairly undulating, and combined with a long yardage, this makes for a tough approach shot. A great hole, with little margin for error and requiring a solid drive to allow yourself to make the green in regulation!
