For a sporty day out in Abu Dhabi, why not pair a round of golf at the Middle East’s only links course with a spin around a legendary racetrack? 

Take a swing at Yas Links Abu Dhabi, set among rolling hills and delicate mangrove plantations, or just enjoy its world-class facilities. Yas Links Abu Dhabi – designed by Kyle Phillips, the world-renowned course architect – is the Middle East's only true links course, in line with the traditional links golf commonly associated with the coastal towns of Scotland and Ireland. The Par 72 championship course stretches to a demanding 7,450 yards, while a nine-hole Par 3 academy course, floodlit practice facilities and luxurious clubhouse further complement the offering.

Next, speed things up at Yas Marina Circuit. Launched in 2009 to host the Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, Yas Marina Circuit is still one of the UAE’s most epic motorsports, sporting and business venues. Winding its way around the beautiful Yas Marina, this ultramodern race track not only offers a bespoke and captivating racing spectacle, but also extensive year-round professional and grassroots motorsports, as well as other sporting events and experiences.
