The golf course has gone through many changes over the years and has turned into one of the best sand courses in the world.

The club also has a state-of-the-art academy which has been developed to coach players of any standard, from beginner to scratch player. With the advanced technology used we are able to not only show players what needs to be done to improve their game but are able to make them understand and feel it as well.
“Your improvement is our goal”.
We are a lot more than just a golf club; the facility also has a sports field which is now home to the Abu Dhabi Football Academy.
There is also a health club equipped with gym, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi and there are three tennis courts and two multi-courts where basketball, five a side football and volleyball can be played.
“Why not be a part of the friendliest golf club in the UAE”
The 18 hole Al Ghazal Golf course, which opened in 1997, measures 6711 yards of the white tees, with a par 71 and presents an exciting challenge to the novice and the experienced golfer. Instead of greens there are browns.
These are created by compacting rolled and treated sand and, as the players quickly discover, they give an extremely true putting surface. The front nine holes (par 35) are based around an archaeological site which was once an old coast line.
The back nine (par 36), which have recently been developed, present a great challenge. Be careful of the water on the 11th! Members of this club make it so special, no matter what standard of golfer joins or visits the club, he or she is always made to feel welcome.
"Everyone is welcome"
Everyone can play golf. We have the knowledge, technology and the commitment to make it happen
“Understanding what you have to do is half the problem”
There is no better feeling than hitting a good golf shot and our Head Professional Mark Ireland at the Golf Academy is committed to making every player experience that feeling. Golf is not easy, whether you are a beginner or a scratch player, the game always presents challenges. The academy has been designed with all the latest technology to help each and every player meet those challenges. More importantly however, is our highly trained Head Professional Mark Ireland, who is able to give each individual personal instruction.
The academy boasts a ‘state of the art’ GASP video system which allows the player to watch his or her swing from three different angles. The professional then explains frame by frame what the player is doing correctly and what needs to be adjusted. The player can then work on the swing by watching each move on a monitor directly in front of them.
