The Majlis Championship course
original home of the Dubai Desert Classic and
the flagship course of Emirates Golf Club, The
Majlis Championship course is a challenging par
72, 7200-yard course. Sculptured around the original
tall desert dunes in 1987, The Majlis was the
first grass course in the Middle East and takes
its name from the Arabic for 'meeting place'.
Indeed, one of the most prominent features on
the course is the Majlis building itself, positioned
between the 8th and 9th holes.
8th hole, a par 4 dogleg is The Majlis' most
unusual hole. Stroke index 3 and playing a full
434 yards, it has the unusual distinction of
playing up-hill and requires a long, well directed
drive to leave a reasonable second shot to its
well protected green.
Golf Club's second Championship golf course
was opened in 1996 and was christened 'The Wadi',
taken from the Arabic for 'valley'. A landscaped
wadi between the 7th and 8th holes highlights
the traditional name given to the course. The
Wadi continues in the same vein as The Majlis
with its undulating fairways and landscape.
the unenviable task of competing with The Majlis,
The Wadi performs admirably and more than acquits
itself. Another challenging layout, The Wadi
tempts the average golfer with its space and
large greens, which are cleverly protected by
fourteen lakes and numerous bunkers. The Wadi
is very popular locally and eagerly lures players
to the challenge of its 7127-yards.
