The Abu Dhabi Golf Club is one of the world’s most prestigious golf clubs which hosts the annual Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship presented by EGA and other popular golf tournaments. Besides the two glorious golf courses and unique playing experiences, the majestic clubhouse with its signature winged falcon design also attracts a large number of visitors. Here’s all that you need to know about the award-winning facility managed by Troon Golf.
ABU DHABI GOLF CLUB
The oldest golf course in the capital city started as the Abu Dhabi Golf & Equestrian Club with an 18-hole sand course in 1976. But in 1998, it became the capital’s first all-grass course with nine holes designed by Ian Scott Taylor, a well-known British golf course designer.
Presently, this oasis of tranquillity is a Par 70 course with 6,307 yards of dedicated space for male golfers and 5,403 yards for the ladies interested in the game. You can find one Par 5, six Par 4 and two Par 3 at the Abu Dhabi City Golf Club.
Seven spectacular saltwater lakes, the challenging terrain and pockets of ornamental palm trees make this place heavenly. Managed by the world-renowned golf resort management company, Troon Golf, Abu Dhabi Golf Club was among the world’s top 100 courses nominated by the Golf World magazine. The National Course and Garden Course offer a stimulating challenge even for top professionals and gives golfers a chance to enjoy an unforgettable game.
Designed by Peter Harradine, the Par 72 National Course is one of the best golf courses in Abu Dhabi. Covering over 7,334 yards, it has lush green fairways and 90 bunkers that are strategically placed. Well-positioned water bodies are also present to make it more challenging. One really has to be a top golfer to master this course.
The Garden Course is a little kinder towards golf enthusiasts. For budding golfers, this Par 36 Course is the ideal place to improve their game. The fully floodlit facility allows you to enjoy a round of golf at night without the scorching sun. The iconic venue is a dream for every professional and amateur golfer.
ABU DHABI GOLF INSTITUTE
If you are a budding golfer, you can take coaching sessions under the guidance of experienced trainers. This fantastic golf club in the heart of the city offers the perfect surrounding to challenge yourself and improve your skills. The coaches at the Abu Dhabi Golf Institute are ready to assist both amateurs and professionals. The use of TrackMan Ball radar, video analysis and golf fitness screening ensures that all basics are covered.

The cost of training with the Director of Instruction is AED 535 per session.
