Overview

The 9-hole, par 36, championship standard Resort Course is situated within the idyllic grounds of the Resort. Designed by Peter Harradine and opened in 1998, the Resort Course has hosted the world’s best players as part of the official curtain raiser to the European PGA Tour event, the Dubai Desert Classic.

Each hole is uniquely landscaped with exotic trees, shrubs and original desert flora and the course also features a saltwater lake which comes into play on five holes. The wooden gazebos, views of the Arabian Gulf and peacocks which freely roam the fairways have added a special charm to this course that is a fair and exciting challenge for golfers of all abilities.
