The golf courses in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, are among the most favorite destinations for golfers. Housing developments and large city buildings have been developed around the beautiful green landscapes in the past two decades.

The European Tour includes the city while the Dubai Desert Classic attracts the world’s best golfers. The courses are conveniently located close to hotels and business districts.

There are so many spots to choose from, it’s a pleasure for golfers to select the best for them.

Here are eight top-ranked courses in Dubai:

1. Emirates Golf Club — The first all-grass championship golf course in the Middle East opened in 1988. It has two 18-hole courses, the Majlis and the Faldo, that take advantage of the natural rolling desert land.

4. Arabian Ranches Golf Club — The challenging, 7,658-yard course has beautiful trees and shrubbery lining the greens, native sands, and dunes. It was designed by Australian pro golfer Ian Baker-Finch, winner of the 1991 Open Championship, in association with Nicklaus Design.

5. Earth, Jumeirah Golf Estates — It has been called “the best manicured course in the Middle East” by Scott Sullivan, an Arabian Ranches champion, in Golf Digest Middle East. The layout has plenty of vegetation for a natural golf feeling.
