Abu Dhabi City Golf Club
Abu Dhabi City Golf Club is a tranquil oasis in one of the Gulf’s most beautiful cities. The facility provides members and visitors with a relaxed atmosphere away from the hustle of modern day life. What was once an undeveloped sandy area is now arguably one of the finest recreational retreats in the region.
The 9-hole Golf Course offers a challenging game to beginners and experienced players alike, with water coming into play at more than half of the holes, and surprisingly for a 9-hole Course, only two Par 3's.
Offering Night Golf at the flood-lit facility adds another benefit and makes it the ideal facility for not just busy business men. Abu Dhabi City Golf Club prides itself for being a valuable contributor and key to "growing golf". The well established Abu Dhabi City Golf Academy, which is not only well reputed for its annual Junior Golf Academy of up to 300 children, gets you started on the game, and comfortable to get out on the course in a feasible time frame.
Our relaxed and uncomplicated approach displays a welcoming atmosphere and encourages beginners, to get started on the game. The Abu Dhabi City Golf Club began life as the Abu Dhabi Golf & Equestrian Club in 1976. For 22 years it was an 18-hole sand course but, in 1998, it was transformed into Abu Dhabi's first all grass course. Its then nine holes were designed by the respected British golf course designer Ian Scott Taylor.
Since then, thousands of golfers have enjoyed matching their skills against the tricky nine holes encircled by the Abu Dhabi Equestrian horse racing track in the Al Mushrif area, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the capital city's town centre. Today, Abu Dhabi City Golf Club is the oldest Golf Course in Abu Dhabi.
Our Abu Dhabi City Golf Academy offers you the 1st 2-tiered Driving Range in the UAE, a long game and short game area, as well as Coaching facilities and our renowned Junior Academy Program. The first 2-tiered Driving Range of the UAE was built on 2010. All 36 bays, 30 of them shaded, allowed practice even at mid-day or during summer months in a comfortable environment.
