This just about sneaks 5 starts, but its a 4.5 I think. I cant really put my finger on it, but I left slightly underwhelmed. It's always fun play the famous courses and test yourself against the pro's, but the course didn't excite me much. Great condition and fun to play, but it is all quite samey. You stand on every tee and look out a sea of bunkers all over the fairway. You then get to your ball and find that you cant see the bottom of the pin. Nearly every approach shot seems to be uphill, and I think you can only see the bottom of the pin on 3 or 4 holes. Its well worth the twilight rate, but in my view there are some much better courses in the region (Majlis, Yas, Al Zorah).
