Featured European Tour Destination: Abu D'Habi

Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship 2019 Underway

The tournament 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.

Latest golf course reviews
Heritage Golf Club, (formerly Golf du Château, Domaine de Bel Ombre): Nestling down beneath a lush, verdant ridge, the Heritage Golf Club does much to evoke its sugar plantation origins. In a relatively open and always undulating environment, this excellent Peter Matkovich design has many holes lined by thick "cane-like" grasses. Read more...
Banchory Golf Club: Heading west into the Scottish Highlands from Aberdeen, you'll travel for many miles through an area known as Royal Deeside, with the famous River Dee always close by. Read more...
The Royal Sydney Golf Club: The Royal Sydney Golf Club: Exuding all the pomp and character that's reflected in its Royal status, RSGC's Championship course presents a demanding test of golf in very pleasant surroundings. The clubhouse is a fabulously large, almost fortress-like building; the course itself a delight to play and always immaculately presented.
