An unexpected oasis of tranquility carved out of the desert, Abu Dhabi Golf Club offers one of the most luxurious golf resort experiences in the Arabian Gulf.


The 27-hole layout, managed by world-renowned Troon Golf, weaves through undulating terrain that features pockets of palms, ornamental trees and shrubs, as well as seven spectacular saltwater lakes. The par-72, 7,600-yard Championship course provides a tough-but-fair challenge, with 18 holes of lush fairways, strategically placed bunkers and generous greens. The 3,299-yard, par-36 nine is more forgiving, making it an enjoyable experience for all players, especially those new to the game.


Each year, TCA Abu Dhabi, in conjunction with Championship organisers IMG and Abu Dhabi Golf Club, plan new improvements to the course to keep our players on their toes. When the players arrive in January they will find a few new strategically positioned bunkers and a completely new 18th tee which, because it is elevated and to the left of the previously used tee, gives a new and more challenging perspective to the final hole.
