Abu Dhabi Golf Club

United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi
6 (3)
Designer: Peter Harradine
Course Opened: 2000

Tournament host of the annual Abu Dhabi event on the European Tour, this well established and well presented club near the heart of Abu Dhabi is best remembered for its quick greens, well presented fairways and iconic grand clubhouse, complete with gold eagle atop the roof.

The golf course isn't poor by any stretch, but this is a flat site and the design is somewhat uninspired. The rounded, shallow bunkering hardly stirs the imagination and the lack of drama around the greens or through the fairways means engaged golfers and design connoisseurs will likely feel underwhelmed when they play here. Plus, the weather here in the Middle East gets very hot here, making the Abu Dhabi Golf Club – great turf aside - a pretty difficult place to golf at certain times of the year.
