About Emirates Golf Club
The Emirates Golf Club boasts two championship courses but it is the Majlis that, as well as playing host to The Dubai Desert Classic, has been dubbed "The Desert Miracle", and attracts countless golfers to Dubai each and every year.
Needless to say, plenty of construction went into carving this magnificent course out of the barren desert landscape from which Dubai has emerged. Stretching to a total yardage of 7,301 yards from the championship tees, the Majlis is a demanding course, the hallmarks of which include include numerous salt and freshwater lakes that come into play on several holes, as well as large, fast putting surfaces of the very highest quality. As well as the giant waste bunkers and water hazards, the super-slick greens are one of the course's main defences.
Seemingly though, that is still not enough to stop the world's best players in their tracks, with an average winning score of -16 since the event's inception in 1989 proving just how good these guys are. Expect to see plenty of birdies and eagles during your time in Dubai!
