I must say their Pro Shop has improved dramatically over the last year, both from merchandising and selection point of view. It is actually a very decent pro shop! They carry good variety of top golf clothing brands, good shoe selection, souvenirs, glasses, club covers - like everything. Al Badia is also an ambassador of Taylormade brand so if you play with Taylormade(I do) they are the best to get advise from. Girls working in the shop are absolute sweethearts and very helpful. They just got a delivery of some nice new grips - ask for Mathew if you are planning to change yours.

Played couple times this week and the course is looking insanely beautiful! Immaculate and ready for MENA tour that starts next week. Greens were so perfect this morning you couldn't find a bump - and suuuper fast. Keep in mind sand here is way softer than in most other clubs in Dubai, so swing confident when in bunker :) Al Badia will be closed for public use from Sunday to Thursday because of the tournament. If you are looking to golf try to squeeze in a round before Sunday - greens are a real treat

I don't play golf but my husband is getting into it now so I guess I will have to bear with it. Had lunch at spikes. They have good servings, but quality can improve. So much chunky meat is a bit hard to digest for me. Maybe smaller portions......hmmm.....

Haha, so true Decker! I am a member here and still the course gets me every time! Some holes they are, well, frustrating. H13 and 5 for instance: they are bloody loooong. H11: beautifu!!! but oh have we all lost our balls here, literally. H6...-i don't even want to talk about it...okay ill talk about it: very narrow and curvy hole with multiple water and sand features, so you always end up or roll into A)the sand B)the water! But to summarize though Al Badia is one of the most beautiful courses in UAE, the landscaping is stunning. On humid days when EGC is boiling this is the place to be, as it gets dry breeze from the desert. Playing as the sun rises or sets will have you pull out your phone camera a few times. Club facilities are top. Food outlets are pretty good, they even have a great little cigar bar in the main clubhouse.

The game of the rich and famous... That is the idea movies,books,news always portrayed,i wanted to experience and reach to the bottom of this. And i did few days back,and my God is a lovely experience, the shiny golf clubs the amazing carts,with nothing but the green grass around you is itself a overwhelming expirience. Play golf,is pheeew a very hard task,i was suprised to know how much detailing exists in this sport. It was a hell of an experience,for all you dads out there,go for it.

Lost a few balls this time around. Some pretty tough holes out there. Thought I was crazy for booking tee times in the middle of the afternoon, but by the back 9, it wasn't so bad. I'll keep braving the heat for now...

played here yesterday and the greens were still a little sandy from being aerated, probably in 2 more weeks they will be back to normal. they do have a good deal, a round of golf and lunch for 400AED if you can deal with the heat.

Great, challenging course with a lot of diversity. The grounds are very well kept (although the greens had just been aerated so they were a little tough), and the locker room facilities are some of the best I've seen. During they summer, they do a deal that includes a meal at Spikes with 2 drinks and a round of golf for AED 399. Looking forward to going again...
