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
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
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.
