Former home of the Fatima Bint Mubarak Open on the Ladies European Tour, this is one of Abu Dhabi‘s must-play golf courses. Thankfully, it’s right next door to the hotel. Designed by legendary South African golfer Gary Player, it was the Arabian Gulf’s first seaside course when it opened in 2010, with several holes commanding views of the ocean, while others weave in and out of the luxury hotels that line the beach.
It’s a course of great variety to keep you on your toes, with hazards including a saltwater lagoon, sand dunes, lakes and over 60 strategically placed bunkers. It’s a huge 7,806 yards in length, but with five different tee positions, this spectacular par 72 course can be enjoyed by amateurs and pros alike.
There’s excellent practice facilities and the clubhouse’s Hawksbill Restaurant – named after the endangered turtles that nest on the adjacent beach – serves up great dishes on a large terrace overlooking the golf course, with the city’s gleaming skyline as a backdrop.
More than just beautiful beaches and hotels, Saadiyat Island is also home to Abu Dhabi’s thriving arts and culture scene, with highlights including Louvre Abu Dhabi, a stunning art and civilisation museum, while Guggenheim Abu Dhabi and Zayed National Museum are both due to open soon.
