Greens were incredibly slow - they had recently been punched and sanded.

Course is good and enjoyable in a really small space. No fairways between tee box and green, just sand so you have to get the distances right.

Enjoyable round

Faldo course - a Proper test of golf

I've been so lucky to play both courses this week and I can tell you the Majlis is easier! I played the Faldo 6 years ago in the blazing heat and found it tough. Today I played it late afternoon for the first nine and under floodlights for the back nine. Scored much better on back nine (15 points v 9!) though reading putts under the floodlights is not easy and i dare say the back nine is bit less hazardous. The front nine is really hard. Lots of long drives over water or sandy wasteland (wadis).
So don't listen to folks who say play Majlis because 'it is better than Faldo' - yes it is more iconic - but I think they don't like to admit Faldo is actually harder!

I got it Faldo green fee for £125 today (includes buggy and range balls) whereas the Majlis is £200 (but i got it for £130 playing with a member) .....I'd say both courses have to be played to be appreciated!
Faldo course: I'm 14 handicap ...shot 98 (3 blobs on front nine....says it all!)

Wow!

Fabulous course! Played with a member which made it cheaper (600 dirhams so about £120). and I'd say worth every penny! There are so many great holes...not just the iconic 8th and 18th. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Awe inspiring. All staff were incredibly nice...taking care of your clubs, organising your taxis home etc. Marshall even noticed we were wilting walking in the relatively cool 30 degrees so brought us a buggy for the last 6 (where in England would that happen?).....Makes you feel like royalty. Although I've played the Faldo about 6 years ago the Majlis is a bit special! Shot 93, so +21 for a 14 handicapper and I was quite happy with that!

PS if you are peckish after - go to the club house and order chicken curry on chips! Absolute delight

PPS round took only 4 hours and that included me stopping to take photo on EVERY hole

Dramatic course particularly under the floodlights

1st time playing under floodlights, choosing a tough course with a beautiful backdrop of the Dubai skyline. Great fun although don't be a twit and leave your regular glasses in the clubhouse, sunnies don't work in twilight or under lights

Poor customer service

Absolutely amazing to play at the heart of the city, surrounded by high rises, and at night.(Take your mozzy spray if you do decide to play)
However, customer service not up to standards of any of the other courses played at UAE and I felt the staff dindt put customer first here.
Everything was (almost) too much trouble (although they did provide everything I did have to go back for that hadn't been provided first time (ie water, correct hired clubs etc)

Night Golf

Playing night golf in the city is really great.
However staff were not as welcoming as on the other courses we played in UAE and you didn't get the feeling (as in all the other places) that you were their focus.

Absolutely amazing course. Very challenging for a high handicapper like me. The rough is all desert scrub and like a magnet for my ball. However, you feel as though you are walking out with the best in the world. One in a lifetime experience and well worth it.
