Enjoy a challenge few golfing destinations can offer: sand golf! Better yet, the uniqueness of Al Ghazal is not limited to the colour of its fairways. The eco-friendly course - basically an unofficial reserve for Abu Dhabi’s abundant natural fauna and wildlife - even features an old falcon trap, which according to urban legend was used regularly by the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s founding president, and his sons.

Refuting the impression that sand courses should be easy, this championship-length, Par 71 has a good mix of tricky Par 3s, 4s and 5s, while the smooth ‘browns’ provide some of the truest putting surfaces anywhere.

Now 15 years old, the family-friendly club - one of the best kept secrets in Abu Dhabi - also has a 30-bay driving range, state-of-the-art teaching academy with video tuition technology, event facilities and a licensed clubhouse.
