Al Ghazal Golf Club

See All

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

Challenging the misconception 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.

This decades-old, family-friendly club also boasts a 30-bay driving range, state-of-the-art teaching academy with video tuition technology, event facilities and a licensed clubhouse.
