The course: Highlights of a round here include sweeping views of the skyline and challenging holes. The par 71, 6,967-yard course is not the longest in the city, but it’s arguably the most storied, having hosted many of the world’s greatest players at tournaments over the years. Hole 6 must be teed off from a floating tee ten metres out into the Creek and many palm tree-lined holes hide undulating fairways, bunkers and water hazards.
Other facilities: As one of the city’s most recognisable spots, you can expect plenty of things to do here. At the club and on its doorstep are a gamut of fitness and well-being events such as al fresco yoga, scuba diving training, swimming classes and even seaplane flights. A simple par 3 course is a good introduction to golf and regular invitational tournaments are organised.
Celebrate a hole in one at: Boardwalk. Built on stilts and sticking out over the Dubai Creek, it’s the place to relieve the finer parts of game. However, there are seven food and beverage outlets on the grounds, ranging from the small academy coffee shop to the signature steak restaurant Legends.
18 holes: Dhs770 (Sun-Thu), Dhs875 (Fri-Sat).
