|Description/History||Dubai Country Club is the oldest club in the Emirates.Dubai Country Club is proud to host the first ever golf course in Dubai. In 1971 history was made, as its 9 hole sand course was ready for the first swing & putt! The club now boasts two sand courses offering a unique golfing experience for beginners & seasoned grass players alike.The Al Awir course has 18 holes with an exceptional layout of 6,346 yards. The course is a challenge to both professionals and amateurs alike, with the unique experience of carrying your own piece of ‘fairway’ with you. Although it is a sand course, there are water hazards and bunkers to be carefully negotiated.The shorter 9-hole Creek Course also has an interesting layout ideal for beginners & juniors
The ‘browns’ are the putting surfaces and are regularly brushed to keep the smooth surface that arguably has a truer roll than grass.
Dubai Country Club has always been host to Dubai’s Men’s Open. The Open Golf Championship is Dubai’s oldest championship, dating back to 1976. It is open to both Professional and Amateur Golfers holding a handicap of 9 or less and is played over 36 holes on 2 consecutive days. Over the years, the Championship has attracted the cream of golfers from the UAE, the Gulf region and internationally.
