The golf course was opened in 2004 and was designed by major winner Ian Baker-Finch in collaboration with Nicklaus Design. Ian Baker-Finch together with design partner Dirk Bouts took their time designing the course, with the aim of creating a free flowing and aesthetically pleasing layout, which complimented and utilized the existing terrain.
Baker-Finch´s vision has created a course that provides a wonderful variety of holes, requiring the golfer to use their imagination and all of their skill throughout the 18 holes. The design without doubt has maintained and utilized the wonderful natural landscape perfectly creating a golf course that flows seamlessly through the sand dunes.
The course is primarily a desert course, which underwent a 2 year enhancement program, which was completed in 2014.
The fairways and greens at The Arabian Ranches Golf Club are superb and maintained to exacting standards that golfers have come to expect from courses within the Dubai region. But beware miss the fairway and you will be faced with a perilous shot from the desert waste areas which feature many native plants and shrubs.
The course has two loops of 9 which both start and end in close proximity to the practice facilities and clubhouse.
This course is a true testament to the expertise and eye to detail that Baker-Finch possesses.
The facilities at Arabian Ranches are superb, a world class practice facility is available for golfers that wish to warm up before they play, and a golf academy is on site for those last minute check ups, the floodlight driving range is a real bonus.
The clubhouse offers everything you could need with dining and catering facilities that are second to none. The beautifully designed clubhouse, in a Spanish Colonial design offers a large terrace overlooking both the 9th and 18th greens.
