About Abu Dhabi Golf Club

"Give me a patch of desert and I will give you a golf course to be proud of” - Peter Harradine

Abu Dhabi Golf Club, designed by Peter Harradine in 1998, is a 27- Hole Championship course that opened its doors to golfers and non golfers alike in May of 2000. The impressive clubhouse, built in the shape of a falcon with its wings outstretched, overlooks the golf course. The Clubhouse dominates the scene as you look across the lakes from the far end of the course.
The superbly designed building exudes a relaxed elegance both inside and out.

With lush fairways, strategically placed bunkers, and generous greens, the 27-hole championship course, has hosted 16 consecutive editions of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship.
Abu Dhabi Golf Club, with its 162 hectares and one of the best world-class 27-hole championship golfing facilities in the world, has been dubbed a “super course” by leading sections of the golfing press.

Abu Dhabi Golf Club takes great pride in its exceptional leisure activities and fine amenities. Since we started, the Golf Club has undergone a significant expansion and renovation of its facilities in order to upgrade the experience for members and guests. We are committed to meeting and surpassing the needs of our valued members

All About

Abu Dhabi Golf Club

In 1995 a man once said “Give me a patch of desert and I will give you a golf course to be proud of” – Peter Harradine. By 1998 a spectacular Championship Course emerged from the dust now to be recognized globally on the European Tour. Set in the shadow of the national symbol of the United Arab Emirates, the National Course, set at 7600 yards from the back tees provides a tough test for golfers of all abilities and will be sure to test all aspects of a golfer’s game. Each hole on our golf course has a unique layout offering risk and reward opportunities for those who dare to take on the National Course.

The Falcon clubhouse reflects the national symbol of the UAE and the historical associations with the country. According to Dr. Sleiman Najm Khalaf, Heritage expert for the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage. “The falcon stands for valor and chivalry; a bird that fights for itself, that hunts for its food with elegance and ferocity.” An attribute needed for golfers to excel around such a demanding golf course. Comprised of three floors the iconic clubhouse can oversee unspoiled views of golfing perfection and is now instantly recognizable all over the world.

Here at Abu Dhabi Golf Club, we take great pride in being a European Tour host venue by hosting the HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship, attracting the best players in the world to come face to face for the chance to win the first Rolex Series event of the year. We pride ourselves in being the ‘Home of Champions’ and we invite you to come to walk in the footsteps of greatness.

Set deep in the grounds of Abu Dhabi Golf Club lies a premium 9-hole golf course shining through the darkness. Set below a state-of-the-art floodlight system our 3341-yard 9-hole golf course can be played dawn until dusk making it perfect for those quick 9’s after work.

Our Garden Course boasts a variety of hole layouts featuring two par 5’s measuring 500+ yards. With an offering of four different tee options, this makes the Garden Course the perfect short course for practice for beginner golfers before their graduation to the full Championship Course.
