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
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.
