My partners introduced me this club as one of the most elite places in Dubai. But I must admit that I came there and was extremely surprised. Commercial European beers, a snack as if I were in McD…. or some medium-priced fast food restaurant. Fried chicken, fries from a bag, tortillas with cheap sauces. Damaged and wobbly tables and extremely worn carpet. I have seen various "miracles" in Dubai, but this club is definitely not it.

Beautiful course in fantastic condition. My complaint is with the rental clubs. Old clubs. No pitching wedge or approach wedge in the bag. Childrens sized putter. Embarrassing for such a nice golf club that they felt the rental set was appropriate. Recommend playing here but if you rent make sure you check your clubs before you head out because it’s too hard to come back and exchange them once you get going with the course layout.

Good day Chris, Thank you for your review regarding your experience here at Dubai Hills Golf Club. We are sorry you felt the rental sets were inadequate, and that they were incomplete. Although our rental sets are Ping G425 and only a couple of years old, we should have supplied you with a set in their entirety. We will be shortly receiving a brand new collection to supplement the service standards we desire and expect. That being said, we would love to welcome you back during your next visit as our guest (once the new rental clubs arrive). Please feel to ask for me personally during your next visit. Kind regards, Karl

We played here as a fourball a week ago on the Saturday of the coronation, What an outstanding day we had, arrived had a drink in the restaurant not overly expensive, great views of the course, then of to the range excellent facilities for chipping putting and driving range. We played at mid day starter was a nice chap very informative. the course what can i say bloody awesome greens like lightning in absolutely perfect condition. we are a 3 two 9 and an 13 handicap golfers and we loved it every hole a challenge, me personally as I'm the shortest hitter found a couple of the par threes off the blues a little long 17 was a driver into wind for me but what a hole! Then after a shower into Duck Hook for food and drinks great atmosphere live singer decent prices and by the side of the 18th green superb wish our club at home would chill out a little like this place, This will be first on the list next year without doubt.

I would have given the review a 4 star if it hadnt been for the lack of signeage, we got a taxi to the golf club and you have to enter through a security barrier for dubai hills estate , we said we were looking for the golf course so were let through. From then on there were no signs to tell you how to get to the course, its like you are in a housing estate. The taxi driver went back to the security barrier and asked the security guard how to get to the course, we followed his instructions and still couldnt find it, asked somebody else who lived there and he just pointed to the road we had come from. Drove round again and still couldnt find it.we saw a driving range so the taxi driver let us off there. Luckily there were two guys on the practice range and we asked them the way to the clubhouse, they said we were quite a long way away. They very kindly lent us their golf buggy so we could get our buggy and come back and collect our clubs. We still dont know how to get to the main entrance. Finally got on the course and it is in nice condition, not too long and enjoyable. We just played as a two ball, the speed was good until we caught up with the fourball in front, but it was not too slow. They are building all around the course, anywhere there is space a villa is being built, this spoils the nice skyline view of downtown dubai. All in all a nice round but they need much better signage to the clubhouse.

Thank you for your review and feedback Swish53. We are extremely disappointed that you struggled to find directions to Dubai Hills Golf Club. We have signage directing guests from after the security gate entrance, but possibly it had been moved for maintenance or the taxi driver had failed to see it. We will of course try to look at ways to improve the guest journey once you enter the estate and improve any required signage. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your "golfing" experience and look forward to welcoming you back once again. Thanks again for your time and feedback. Karl

This golf course is always in very good condition. It is generally a confidence builder for most players with generous fairways and not extremely long. Greens run a consistent good speed.
Unfortunately, course Marshalls were absent during our entire round which lasted 4 hours and 50 minutes. Someone, somewhere was not keeping their pace and I feel sorry for the afternoon tee times who would not have made it through the round.
I think it is an easy fix during busy times - get a competent manager on duty to go out when you start seeing your groups fall behind. Get the culprits to skip a hole - also green fee players. And we can all have a 5 star experience which this place deserves.

Played Dubai Hills on a recent trip to Dubai and would highly recommend. Booking was easy, price very reasonable for this part of the world. The welcome on our arrival at the club was excellent. Cart with GPS, ice flannels, unlimited water, range balls and complimentary club clean were some of the features before you even got on the first tee. Stephen was our caller for the day and was an exceptional host. As for the course itself, amazing. Impeccable tee boxes, carpet like fairways and slick, undulating greens were surrounded by lots of strategically placed bunkers and water features. Definitely a good test but also set up to score well. After our round we enjoyed some superb hospitality in the bar and restaurant with our Swedish playing partner for the day who was excellent company. If you are looking for a round in Dubai, I would highly recommend this great course and club.

Dubai hills golf course is one of best course in Dubai in terms of golf course, facility, and restaurants.

Course is very well designed for intermediate and good golfers with many challenging holes. From many holes, we could see Burj Khalifa! Green condition was always perfect whenever we visited.

Service is also very prompt.

The course suffered from a watering issue but has recovered remarkably well in a short period of time. Greens were still in good condition. Some bits of rough were thin but sometimes that was good news

We played this course, part of a small tour in dubai. Tee off at 10am so very warm. The course is managed by Troon Golf who also run courses like The Grove in Ebglabd so you know its going to be good. Huge driveway meandering through lots of villas. Amazing clubhouse and great friendly staff.
The course is stunning and was in great condition. Lots of bunkers and a few holes with water. You get a water container given to you to start and can refill every hole with cold water. A lovely range to use at the start also. Truly a great experience and looked after ever so well. Enjoy

This is a top notch golf course in Dubai.

The experience is polished with a buggy allocated at the outset and then an impressive grass driving range.

The course is tough but a fair test, with lots of very attractive holes with a stunning view of the Dubai skyline from a number of the holes.

There are a number of lakes on the course and it is in very good condition. Soft drinks, alcohol and snacks are available from on course outlets and buggies.

There are also excellent food and beverage options at the end - Duck Hook and Hill House.

At 330 for a round, the price was fair.
