Saadiyat Beach Golf Club

Sheikh Khalifa Highway - E12 - Abu Dhabi - United Arab Emirates

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club has been constructed on the breathtaking beach of Saadiyat Island, away from bustling city life. It was designed by Gary Player – a golf legend and author of more than 400 golf courses worldwide. This course hosts the Gary Player Saadiyat Beach Classic charity event every year.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is an 18-hole par 72 course. At the time of building, it was the first ocean course in the Persian Gulf, with six holes featuring panoramic gulf views. It is also an environmentally friendly course, designed under strict environmental guidelines.

This Player’s course features many challenging golf hazards. It utilizes three natural saltwater lakes as the water hazards, combing with large dunes and numerous bunkers. All elements are strategically placed throughout the course to keep players on their toes. Despite the long distance, a large variety of tees on each hole makes this course playable for golfers of all abilities.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is one of the most beautiful golf courses in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, where players can adorn the white sandy beach with pristine clear water in many holes. Have you ever seen dolphins play under the water? Here is a chance. The clubhouse within the ground is also an ideal place for golfers to relax and socialize after a demanding golf round.
