Abu Dhabi City Golf Club

Tee off with Abu Dhabi’s soaring skyline as a backdrop, or lengthen your day by booking a twilight round under the city’s night sky: the UAE capital’s first nine-hole facility, also known as ‘The People’s Golf Course’, offers golfers a playing environment unlike any other in the emirate.

Tee off with Abu Dhabi’s soaring skyline as a backdrop, or lengthen your day by booking a twilight round under the city’s night sky: the UAE capital’s first nine-hole facility, also known as ‘The People’s Golf Course’, offers golfers a playing environment unlike any other in the emirate.

Open to members and visitors, the club - which has the only two-tiered driving range in Abu Dhabi – sits conveniently in the heart of the city and is an ideal venue to escape the hustle and bustle, or cap off a day of business meetings or sightseeing. Crucially for business travellers, overhead lights cater for tee-times until 9pm.

With the club celebrating its 35th anniversary in 2011, the notoriously difficult test through Holes 7-9 has not got any easier with the passage of time. Dubbed ‘Amen Corner’ by locals, the Par 3, Par 5 and Par 4 trio is arguably Abu Dhabi’s closest match to the harrowing Holes 11-13 stretch at Augusta National Golf Club, home of the Masters.

Elsewhere, newly re-laid greens and a brand new fleet of GPS-equipped golf carts add to a compelling urban golf experience that is only a 10-minute drive from Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

After your round, players can also unwind, relax and dine on the club’s brand-new outdoor pavilion, which features terrific course views.

SIGNATURE HOLE

You can’t pick one on this course – instead watch out for the three hole stretch from 7-9; it will quite literally make or break your round.
