Featured European Tour Destination: Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship 2020

The Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, presented by EGA, is being played at 
Abu Dhabi Golf Club, which we have rated a solid 5 for its immaculate presentation, terrific bunkering, a good choice of water hazards and beautiful greens that give the course a parkland feel rather than the desert ambiance you may expect. The course is open to visitors on weekdays and weekdays.

If you’re going for a sand course where you will play on the ‘browns’ rather than the ‘greens’, head to 
Al Ghazal Golf Club, which has interesting elevation changes on many holes and a challenging layout. Another option is Yas Links Golf Club, an excellent 18-hole championship layout along a seawater lagoon with floodlit practice facilities and a luxury clubhouse.

Abu Dhabi draws close to five million tourists each year, with proximity to cosmopolitan Dubai – whose tourist footfall exceeds 14 million annually – allowing visitors to experience the luxurious cities without spending too much time on travel. A bus journey from Dubai to Abu Dhabi takes roughly 2-2.5 hours while a fast car should take you less than 1.5 hours.

The city’s chief attraction is the awe-inspiring architectural marvel Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque featuring 82 domes, over 1,000 columns and a stunning white and gold façade. If you’re visiting with kids, plan a visit to Ferrari World, home to the world’s fastest roller coaster.
