The location of Arabian Ranches Golf Club is about 30 minutes by car from most of the places one might reasonable wish to visit, from the airport to Dubai Marina to The Creek, and including all the Malls from Ibn Battuta to Irdif, and including Emirates Mall and Dubai Mall. Malls are more than simply shops, they are experiences of Dubai, with restaurants, skiing, iconic buildings such as Burj Khalifa.
It isn't necessary to play golf to stay at the Golf Club, but it made me think about picking up some clubs and having another go.
The room - 110 - was a good size with an excellent en-suite bathroom, and a view over the golf course. The free broadband was reliable, if a tad slow.
The restaurant was very good - breakfast especially was excellent.
You really need a car to stay at the hotel, though taxis are nearby and not expensive, and there is a regular bus service from Arabian Ranches to the Emirates Mall metro stop, which then opens up all other areas of Dubai, except Palm Jumeirah, which has a completely separate monorail system.
Staff at the hotel were all most professional, cheerful and helpful - I couldn't fault them.
No real negatives about the Golf Club - it would have been nice to have had access to a swimming pool - but it IS a golf club after all!
Hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. The pool looked very inviting and very clean, although I did not fell the need to take a dip. Room was as expected, clean, temperature set to cool. Restaurant was just down stairs, a nice walking view of the pool to the restaurants available. Room service was good, when I didn't feel like leaving the room. Breakfast was nice, buffet type deal.
We arrived late after our flight delay and the reception staff were brilliant got in our room straight away. The room was lovely nice and big had everything in what you need. The security staff were very helpful when needing taxis which are easily to get outside of the hotel. We only stayed for five nights but would definately stay again and recommend.
Staff made the hotel a home away from home. Anything we needed was immediately attended to. Any advice needed was given clearly, this made it easy for us to explore the City. Train station nearby too.
A bit difficult to find the hotel for the first time. A signage at the rear entry too would help find the hotel a bit quicker. Nice place to stay!

This hotel was great value for money. New, clean and modern. The room was well equipped and spacious with full kitchen and very nice bathroom. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. A big thanks to the porter who went way beyond the call of duty in helping customers. Close to the metro station with access to shopping malls and the Marina. I will definitely stay there again.
