Saadiyat Beach Golf Club
The Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, a Gary Player design, is a spectacular golf course and is one of the world’s most fascinating golf projects. The Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is located just 10 minutes from the centre of Abu Dhabi, and is a must play on your Abu Dhabi golfing itinerary.
The golf club has utilised the sheer beauty of Saadiyat Island to create a golfing experience unrivalled by any other. Finished off with picturesque views of the sparkling blue waters and white sandy beaches that the Gulf provides, this is a magnificent beachfront course which features 18 breath-taking holes, each containing its own unique character. Extending across over 300 acres, this course has been designed to incorporate the stunning natural environment, whilst being a challenge for all levels of golfer.
The greens of the course weave in and out of multiple five-star resorts, and six holes include breath-taking panoramic views of the Gulf coast. To impose a challenge on the player, hazards such as a saltwater lagoon, sand dunes, lakes and 67 bunkers have been strategically placed. Despite multiple challenges on this testing golf course, players still have the opportunity to play from five different tee positions. Therefore even the most amateur golf player can still experience this spectacular course.

It is essential to align yourself well, or you will be swiftly punished. Golfers need to choose which hazard is preferable to aim towards; and the likely choice is to aim right on the fairway towards the bunker. Once you land on the fairway, you are then faced with a second challenge; there is a long stretch of water on the front of the green. This hole is undoubtedly a memorable one.
