Set out for an extraordinary golfing experience at the remarkable Emirates Golf Club! At Rayna Tours, we offer exclusive tour to enjoy the advanced golf facilities available at its two premium 18-hole golf courses: Majlis and Faldo. While the renowned Majlis is Emirates Golf Club’s flagship course, Faldo is one-of-its-kind floodlit course in the region.
Opened in 1988 and designed by the renowned golf course architect, Karl Litten, Majlis is credited to be the Middle East’s first grass golf course. Once completely surrounded by desert sands, this 7301 yard, par-72 course now enchants you with the most panoramic views of the city skyline. After all, the whole setting comprising winding fairways, seven lakes and a wide spectrum of indigenous flora well blends in with the city’s dazzling sights as well as desert landscape. Besides being the recipient of the prestigious Best Course Middle East award in 2015, it has consistently been ranked among the world’s top 100 golf courses.
Probably the most awe-inspiring attraction within the facility is the elegant Majlis building, located between the 8th and 9th holes. Also, striking is the distinct design of the clubhouse that resembles a cluster of traditional Bedouin style tents. Beyond its scenic environs and superb amenities, Majlis Golf Course is the venue of the region’s most acclaimed golfing tournament, Omega Dubai Desert Classic, which of course forms one of the major highlights of the PGA European Tour. Having drawn many top players such as Tiger Woods, Henrik Stenson and Ernie Els, this golf course provides both charm and challenges all across its 18 holes.
Speaking of Faldo, it is 7348 yard, 73-course built in 1996. Earlier known as Wadi, it was redesigned by Nick Faldo after almost a decade, thus deriving its present name. It is not just its striking bunkers and serene ambience that make this golf course exceptional, but also its unique features that allow for an amazing night golf experience against the dazzling city views. Apart from world-class practice facilities and several excellent dining options, it is also home to a golf academy.
From Majlis’ expansive double greens, par-5 closing hole, and many doglegs such as par-4 8th hole to wide fairways and ingeniously placed lakes at Faldo, a visit to Emirates Golf Club promises an unforgettable golf excursion for beginners and professionals alike.
