Tee off at Dubai's night golf spots

Mon, August 24, 2020

While year-round sunshine means golf is popular during the day, playing a round after sunset presents a cool alternative.

1

Emirates Golf Club

The Majlis Course at the Emirates Golf Club may have become famous as the host of the European Tour’s Dubai Desert Classic, but its sister course, the Faldo, is the star at night. The fully-floodlit grass course is one of the most spectacular in the game, and the only 18-hole night course in the entire region. Its central location also means that you play with a backdrop of lit-up skyscrapers on some holes.

Address Montgomerie

For a shorter, but no less beautiful round, the Address Montgomerie Dubai course designed by Colin Montgomerie and Desmond Muirhead offers a floodlit nine-hole par three course that's open until 10pm. In addition, there’s a putting green and driving range accessible until 9pm. Gather your friends to play nine holes, and you'll also get unlimited balls at the driving range.

Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club

If you’ve already checked out of your hotel and want to sneak in another round before your flight, the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club is five minutes from Dubai International Airport. The sail-shaped clubhouse is one of the city’s most famous landmarks, while the par-3 course is lined with palm and coconut trees adjacent to the Dubai Creek, giving it a totally different feel to other courses in the city. Note that 8:15pm is the last tee off time, and lights have to be out by 10pm.

The Track at Meydan

For something more casual, The Track – next to the Meydan Racecourse that plays host to the annual Dubai World Cup horse race – is a Peter Harradine-designed pay-and-play golf course. The lights come on in the afternoon at 4pm, while the last tee off time for night golf on the nine-hole course is 9:30pm, with lights going out at around 11pm. 

5

Arabian Ranches Golf Club

The driving range and putting green at the Arabian Ranches Golf Club is lit up until 9pm. For some Dubai locals, it is not uncommon to put the kids to bed then head out for a round of golf, to make the most of one of the city’s many after-dark advantages. Bonus: the putting green is often free to play in summer. The clubhouse also has a lively restaurant and lounge, which has great dining deals every night of the week.

Trump International Golf Club

Trump Golf Club Dubai

For a more challenging experience, tee off at the Gil Hanse-designed floodlit par 3 course at the Trump International Golf Club. Located in the heart of Dubai's DAMAC Hills development, Trump Golf Dubai’s 9-hole course features undulations and hazards that mimic the championship course, providing golfers with opportunities to perfect their game. The course is open until 9:30pm, with green fee packages that include unlimited balls and range access.
