Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour sanctioned Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, was the first all grass championship golf course in the Middle East when it opened in 1988. Taking pride in its 36 holes of world-class golf, the club sports two of the city's finest must-play courses, the Majlis and the Faldo Course, which is also the only 18 hole course in the region to offer night golf. Both courses combine the natural rolling desert terrain for a serious golfing test, while the signature clubhouse, remains the most eye-catching in the region.
The Majlis Course has been presented with numerous accolades over its 28 year history, including its 2016-17 ranking by Golf World magazine as one of the 'Top 100 Golf Courses in the World' and being awarded 'Best Course Middle East' in the Asian Golf Monthly Awards in 2015. Emirates Golf Club was the first golf club in the MENA region to receive GEO Certification.
