Emirates Golf Club - Majlis
A flagship course at Emirates Golf Club, the Majlis championship course is a challenging par 72, 7,301-yard layout. Designed by Karl Litten, this golf course was built around the dunes on this beautiful site; where the dessert flora has still been maintained to this day. It comes as no surprise that this course was named the Best Course in the Middle East in the 2010 Asian Golf Awards.
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 word for 'meeting place'. One of the most prominent features on the course is the Majlis positioned between the 8th and 9th holes, while 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. Furthermore, the par three 7th is a hole which also sticks in the player’s mind as it is lined with the full length of a lake. In the closing hole, a shot is required to conquer yet another lake to a lengthy yet narrow double green.
