I'm a beginner. The course is challenging for experienced players and offers enough encouragement to keep me coming back. The fairways are beautifully maintained, if you miss them you are in sand. Greens are well defended, they are immaculately manicured and a tad quick. Service is good. Check in is efficient. The club shop has everything you could need. Pre... More

Played here many times but went last night to use the practice areas. 100 AED for unlimited range balls, time, putting and chipping. Great areas, lots of space (driving range could be bigger).

One of the nicest golf courses I have played. From the clubhouse to the greens everything is impeccably designed and maintained. Would definitely recommend this course to anyone. Greens are really difficult but so much fun to play.

If you like to golf I would visit this El CID golf course. From the front desk to the caddies the whole place is very supportive and helpful. Talk about laid back and enjoying a round of golf, no pressure.

The Els is a little way from the center of Dubai located in Sports city but well worth the trip. Great facilities and a good course in very good condition for golfers of all levels.

The 621 restaurant and terrace bar overlooks the putting green and down the course. Beautiful view, great food and drink. Perfect for unwinding at the end of a busy day. Lift your eyes from your screen and soak in the view

I was taken to play this course by my nieces husband and was really impressed by the quality of the course and all the associated facilities such as practice area, putting green, golf buggies and even the hired clubs. The Clubhouse was stunning, and the staff very helpful and attentive. An excellent golf facility. Played many courses in Scotland and... More

The Els Course is a wonderful course for a more serious golfer, with a beautiful layout, great facilities, exceptionally friendly people which all translates into a great experience. A participating course in the Troon Golf experience, this gives Troon Golf members an excellent discount making this an affordable course -- definitely well-worth the price based on the quality of the...
