Top 10 Courses: 2018 Best in the Middle East

This ‘best of’ section combines the views of our official Top 10 Courses in the Middle East panel with your reader votes

This is our fifth biennial ranking of the best golf courses in the Middle East, and for the second time, we have broadened our scope to include a range of excellence that exists beyond the boundaries of 18-hole layouts. Unsurprisingly, these categories were just as hard to separate as the courses themselves.

This is a region that excels both on and off the course. The amenities are among the best in the world and the service is exemplary. Of the six nine-holers in the Middle East, not one doesn’t leave us pining for its imaginary second nine. As for the category of Best Clubhouse, there is scarcely one that doesn’t combine arresting architecture with a seamless blend of comfort and convenience.

We sifted through the views of our panel and tallied the reader votes to arrive at this, the final list of winners and runners-up. The very best of the best in a region that consistently sets its own international benchmark. – RG

Never mind that my actual calendar says it’s only February.
