The Majlis championship course. On the edge of the city of Dubai, built in and around the dunes, you’ll find The Majlis championship course, featuring 18 holes layed out in a par 72 course of 7,301 yards. Florida-based architect Karl Litten was responsible for the design, in which he kept the wishes from His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to maintain the desert flora, alive. Hundreds of indigenous species of flora and fauna and seven fresh and saltwater lakes make up the beautiful layout of the course. The Majlis, which is the Arabic word for ‘meeting place’ was the first grass golf-course in the Middle East and the Majlis clubhouse between the 8th and 9th hole is since 1988 a Dubai landmark. One of the most challenging holes on the course is the par 4, dogleg 8th. 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 small, undulating green where the dreaded 3-putt is always a threat. The course record for the Majlis course is held by Ernie Els, he shot a 61 on 27th January 1994. Facilities offered are Buggies, a driving range, Pitching green, Putting green, Golf lessons, Restaurant and Bar. BESTDUBAITRAVEL
