Has anyone here played any golf in Dubai? Looking to head over October/November time for 5 nights or so. Any advice on where to stay/play? Is there any way of doing it cheap or is it going to be expensive?
Thanks in advance!
I’ll be holidaying in Dubai in June.
Are there any current suggestions about the best course to play this time of year? We’re staying at the Atlantis so by the looks of things we’ve got a few courses reasonably close by.
Emirates Golf Club is the closest to The Palm. Two courses of which the Majlis is the standout. Most expensive course in Dubai though.
Others to have a look at in no particular order:
Jumeirah Golf Estates Earth Course.
Dubai Creek. Expensive as well. But good.
Dubai Hills. New course. Not a fan.
Trump. Good track. Reasonable price.
Arabian Ranches. Not a fan.
June is hot. Be prepared.
I'd rank them:
3. JGE Earth
4. Everything else
You will really enjoy the new Trump course, I was pleasantly surprised.
The rest of the options are average to slightly above average IMO.
Els is amazing and I played it last month and it was immaculate. I love middle east golf especially this time of the year even though it does get pricey if you play before 1:30 pm. I still need to play more courses in Dubai to have a full ranking but of what I played thus far my rankings would go like this:
All really good courses with great conditions. The vibe around Emirates awesome as they were playing music on the range and everyone was out there putting in work and taking lessons and such. Yas had an over watering issue that washed away some of the course so I would not pay prime rates to play. Saadiyat is the best course to me with its combination of challenge 7800 yards from the tips, layout, bunkering, and location. I just flat out love that course. I did come across the best kept secret course in Doha, Qatar called Education City GC and words and pictures do not do it justice if you are in that region.
