Abu Dhabi Golf Club

A - Khalifa City - Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates

Abu Dhabi Golf Club is known as “an oasis of tranquillity carved out of the desert.” It is a short drive from Abu Dhabi Skyline and home to the PGA European Tour, witnessing the triumph of many golf legends such as Chris Dimarco, Paul Casey, Martin Kaymer, Robert Rock, Rory McIlroy, etc.

Abu Dhabi Golf Club is a 27-hole championship course, with the first 18 holes on par 72 and the rest on par 36. Players can choose to play a 9-hole or 18-hole round.

The front 18 holes (The National Course) are built with lush fairways, generous greens, and strategically placed bunkers. It is amazingly challenging, even for a golf professional. The back 9 (The Garden Course) is, on the other hand, more forgiving and suitable for new players.

Water hazards are featured in many holes of the courses. The 12th is the most distinctive hole, in which players must overcome an artificial lake to a wall defended by deep bunkers. The 18th can be a noteworthy finish to your 18-hole round. It is a bit long and marked with rolling greens.

Abu Dhabi Golf Club has a striking clubhouse in the shape of a falcon outstretching its wings with modern facilities, from a driving range and putting green to a restaurant, bar and lounge, locker rooms, massage room, etc. All contribute to bringing players the best golf experience ever. Imagine how wonderful it is to relax in a 5-star clubhouse after conquering an 18-hole championship course.

Green fees are quite high, following the high-end service. However, it is worth a try. Never miss Abu Dhabi Golf Club if you have a chance to visit the United Arab Emirates.
