Where2Golf says: 

Doha Golf Club: This is (currently) the only golf course in Qatar, but what's missing in quantity is more than compensated by the quality of Doha Golf Club. This terrific layout, combines the best characteristics of classic parkland golf, with nicely rolling fairways, occasional water hazards and splendid bunkering, all presented in an unmistakably desert environment. Palms, a variety of other modest-sized trees and on the back-nine, tall imported cacti, all provide good definition to the pleasantly undulating holes. There is more grass here than sand, at least on the slightly longer front-nine. The back-nine is sculpted from limestone quarries, giving rise to many memorable holes, which, like those on the front, are bordered by a generous amount of lush grassy semi-rough, before sandy wasteland comes into play. Finding your ball is not usually an issue, but playing from the hard-pan will require some adept shot-making. With par-5's opening and closing both the inward and outward nines, and four demanding, water-protected par-3's, this is a course that will challenge you from first to last, but also reward you with one of the best golfing experiences in the entire Middle East.

Did you know?

Doha was one of the first grass golf course built in the Middle East. As yet it has not been joined by other golf developments in Qatar, although building projects in Doha seem to be rivalling those of Dubai. | Doha's championship course has regularly hosted the European Tour's Qatar Masters (see our Tournaments section >by Venue >Doha). | One of the best vantage points to view the course and the desert beyond is from the excellent clubhouse terrace.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
