Built as a true 18 hole, par 72, desert style grass course, a signature course designed by Ian Baker-Finch in association with Nicklaus Design. Miss the immaculate grass of the fairways and greens and you enter the sandy waste, with its indigenous shrubs and bushes. Within the Clubhouse are 11 luxurious Guest Rooms with spectacular views overlooking either the Golf Course or the Lake.

The "New" Restaurant (recently renovated) is fantastic. Very open and bright. The food and service were excellent. The lamb chop were amazing

Lighting inside this restaurant is so bright you need sunglasses. Outside has a nicer atmosphere and view. Food is ok but nothing special. Prices are reasonable for Dubai. Takes a long time to get your drink so order in advance.

Nice friendly welcome on arrival. The club is shoehorned in the middle of Arabian ranches and is a links type course, rather barren and featureless apart from the contours of the greens and fairways which were a challenge. Of course we are in the desert so be prepared for many shots out of the waste areas if indeed like me... More

We spent Christmas Day at the newly opened Ranches restaurant and we had a fab day. The kids were entertained with bouncy castles, face painting and even a visit from Santa. The food was great and so much choice - the BBQ king prawns were amazing!

We have been frequent visitors to the club house as we live in the area. We love their food and the atmosphere, especially in winter when you can enjoy the outside seating area. Their service staff was never great, some are friendly and efficient but the majority lacks enthusiasm, are slow and don't make you feel welcome. We visited the... More

We are frequent UK visitors to Dubai staying with friends in the Ranches and having enjoyed previous visits to the Arabian Ranches club house we were looking forward to returning following the closure during refurbishments.

I haven't played this course for 12 months mainly because it's not got the best reputation in Dubai. I'm a convert. I've played twice in three weeks and I've got to say that it's a delight. It's a fair test of golf ... not easy by any stretch of the imagination. The layout is interesting and the condition was excellent.... More

Wonderful golf course in town with its unique combination of sand and green. Better be safe on tee otherwise you may spend most of your time in sand. Pleasant staff, good food and nice facilities in club to enjoy your time.

We popped into the turn up and play par 3 course and had a quick practice on the driving range first. We were pleased with the facilities and all the staff seem friendly and helpful. Although it was dark we found the flood lit par 3 course easy to negotiate and had a lovely evening here.
