If you like playing golf in the middle of a building site this is for you.
A good golf course designed by Monty spoilt by the building of hundreds of houses around the course which makes it noisy and unpleasant
The cost of 70BD for 18 holes is around 190 usd which is quite a lot for dodging construction workers whilst you are waiting to tee off.
Shame - its a good course but one to miss with Doha and Dubai so close.
Colin Nunn July 26, 2009

Course provides a challenge to all golfers. Fairways are undulating with little prospect of a flat lie if you haven't played to a position. Approach to most greens are protected by bunkers or grass swales.
All greens present a challenge with 3 to 4 levels on every one.
Best time to play the course is early morning or a twilight round from April to October as the heat can be oppressive.
Course is over sown in November with the full benefit being from December to March. One of the tougher courses in the middle east worth a look if you a mid handicapper. High handicappers will be frustrated.
