Description The clubhouse is designed in a wrapping form of golden roofs, stone and blue glass culminating in a central atrium, where an interior oasis is situated. There are extensive water features throughout. The lower roofs sweep around the terrace providing shade and the use of palm trees perfectly matches the Al Badia theme – which translates 'Land Of The Bedouins.'

What a beautiful course. A short par 4 with wide fairways lulls you into a false sense of security and after walking away with a par be prepared for the fun and games to begin. With water lining what seems 75% of the course, Al Badia requires a straight tee shot on most holes. The dog legs are more like Boomerangs and the tee shots to clear the water definitely require a Driver fully loaded. The fairways could be a little softer but overall a great place to play. The dressing rooms to wind down are just amazing.

This golf course is a stunning new course to add to the
A Robert Trent Jones 2 course quite close to the airport, Al Badia sometimes gets left off visitors' lists because it is a little further from the main hotel drag. BUT it is a wonderful course, almost always in pristine condition with some great holes. The final hole is wonderful fun - strangely less demanding than an awful lot that has gone before. Like so many UAE courses, which tees you play off is crucial - off either of the longer sets of tees the course can be brutally challenging - in particular the front 9. For golfers with an aversion to water this is NOT the course for you. There are at least 10 holes where water is in play and I suppose this would be my primary criticism - there's just a bit too much of it! That said, if you can get past the 9th hole with a half decent score you can have a real go at the back 9.
The 'Clubhouse' has to be seen to be believed...:-)

Emirates and Dubai Creek golf courses also situated in Dubai. It is always making you think about whether you take the easy option or to be brave and take the 210 yard drive over the water. This is by far the best golf course I have ever played and I think it will compete with Emirates and Dubai Creek in the near future.
