There’s no better time to experience this fabulous course, one of the finest in the UAE
Home to the season-opening Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, held each January, the 7,440-yard Abu Dhabi Golf Club course was designed by Peter Harradine and is ranked by Golf Digest (italics) as the fourth best course in the UAE.
Winding its manicured way around seven sizable (and penal) saltwater lakes, no fewer than 90 strategically placed shallow catch-bunkers and through undulating pockets speckled with palms, ornamental trees, flowering bushes and shrubbery and the occasional stone wall, the course rounds out at the monumental 18th, anchored by the iconic falcon-shaped clubhouse.
This building is an ode to the national bird of UAE, which is a symbol of force and courage, both of which are needed to tame this beast of a course.
