Nice and wide golf course for forgiveness. Very well maintained by Intercontinental. Unfortunately it's going to be closed by Jan 2017, so hurry up if you want to experience this course.

Firstly had an afternoon organised picnic with many friends, then following week had an evening meal with family. Top class service with superb well presented delicious food. Absolutely great sat on the terrace watching experienced and beginner golfers using the driving range.

Had been told that this course was okay by friends but have to say it was more interesting, in better condition, had better facilities and was much better value for money than the Emirates. Play it before it shuts in early 2017! Great track !
