The Faldo Course is one of two 18-hole championship courses at Emirates Golf Club, which also offers a nine-hole, par-3 course. The course's namesake, Nick Faldo, created a layout that incorporates his trademark tees and bunkers with the naturally rugged terrain to create a visually stunning design. There are also water hazards strategically situated throughout to further test golfers. The Faldo Course is popular among both tourists and locals for its challenging game and immaculate conditions. The Emirates Golf Club with its three courses, extensive practice facilities, and golf academy is renowned for being one of the finest golfing destinations in Dubai.

Emirates Faldo

For starters it was very hot. That is the reason for the poor rating o the weather. The course is well maintained from tee to green. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The clubhouse staff and waitstaff were very friendly as well. This course is definitely a repeat and a must play if you are ever in the area.

Emerites Faldo Course

Great course!!! The layout is awesome, the faiways were impeccable, but the greens a were a little hairy the time I played and they needed to be rolled. Could not beat the price for the experience of a lifetime to play where the PGA tour plays. Its a must play.

Not your average round!

The Faldo Course at Emirates Golf Club is a great course! And playing in the middle of the night, with the bright lights of Dubai around you is a great plus! I teed off right at sunset, 6:15pm. By the end of the first hole all the flood light were on that the fairways were light up like Christmas. It was a great experience and a fun round of golf. The course was is great shape, not as good as the sister Majlis course, but still a great track. This is a must play in Dubai, just for the simple fact that you can tell your friends back home that you teed it up in the middle of the night!!!
