Tee off with Abu Dhabi’s soaring skyline as a backdrop, or book a twilight round under the city’s night sky at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club. The UAE capital’s first nine-hole facility, also known as ‘The People’s Golf Course’, offers golfers a playing environment unlike any other in the emirate.
Open to members and visitors, Abu Dhabi City Golf Club - which has the only two-tiered driving range in Abu Dhabi – sits conveniently in the heart of the city and is an ideal venue to escape the hustle and bustle, or cap off a day of business meetings or sightseeing. If you’re in the city for business and work late hours, you’ll be glad to know the overhead lights cater for tee-times until 9pm.
There’s a notoriously difficult test through Holes 7-9. Dubbed Amen Corner by locals, the Par 3, Par 5 and Par 4 trio is arguably Abu Dhabi’s closest match to the harrowing Holes 11-13 stretch at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia, USA.
Elsewhere, lush greens and an impressive fleet of GPS-equipped golf carts add to a compelling urban golf experience.
