About
The Royal Golf Club, acclaimed as Troon Golf's "Facility of the Year 2013", is conveniently located just 20-minutes drive from Bahrain's capital, Manama, and the same distance from the Saudi-Bahrain causeway. The Club's 7,102 yard, 18 Hole Par 72 Montgomerie course offers a unique blend of links and desert golf, taking advantage of Bahrain's natural rough desert terrain and combining it with vast manmade lakes. The Championship course is complemented by the Mini Monty 9-hole, Par 3 course which is ideal for beginners in the sport, junior golfers and those wishing to work on their short game. It is a scaled down version of its big brother with par 3 holes ranging in length from 60 to 140 yards. State-of-the-art floodlights are installed on the Back 9 holes of the Montgomerie course and across the whole of the Mini Monty course meaning that golfers can enjoy a relaxing round of golf day or night. Additional facilities at the Club include an Academy with shaded driving range bays and immaculate practice putting greens, a well-stocked Golf Shop, a Country Club with a cooled/heated swimming pool, and several award-winning restaurants.

9 Hole Wee Monty
Apr 2021 • Couples
My first golf experience is undeniably amazing.

We booked 9hole Wee Monty course 24hrs in advance. We have been told about the procedures and dress code.

When we arrived, the staff led us to the RGC shop to pay and check-in. If it is your first time, they will advise you to buy your own balls; 1 box is enough. (Gloves too if you want). Then you will be provided with set of golf clubs with trolley.

Next, we proceeded to the practice range where swings are unlimited. :)) some staff are helpful and will even give you a quick guide on proper grip and swing.

Then, after the practice, we headed to the course. It was easy, map will be provided as well a scoring card. The course are well directed and easy to locate.

Refreshment is available within the field but it is a little bit pricey.

I must say that I enjoyed every minute of it. Take your time to finish the course but also be mindful when the course is busy.

The game is highly recommended to any group; whether couple, family or friends. It’s a great sport to unwind and socialize.

Covid constrained championship course challenge
Mar 2021
Passing through Bahrain and an old pal arranged a round at this oasis.
Clubhouse and course was everything you'd expect and the prices reflected it. Club hire is available. Green Fee was BD 55 ie (GBP 110) and club hire another BD25.
Covid constraints meant that lockers/showers etc were unavailable which is never good in the heat of the ME, and refreshments were limited to the coffee shop; that said it was good to get out amidst covid constraints.
The course is definitely a challenge. Narrow fairways, and undulating greens with plenty (too much?) shape. Greens seemed slow (furry) but the ball often continued to roll, and also received the ball well. If you've played in Oman think Ras Al Hamra meets Al Mouj! as it has the championship difficulty set amongst the wadi's and oil field production pipelines/nodding donkeys etc.

Good service!

Nice grounds and ambiance. What impressed me the most is the service at the restaurants. It was cozy for me to comfortably spend a few hours reading and sipping coffee before the lunch feast.

Fun in the Sun

Starting off the escape from Saudi with a bacon buddy and a cold beer is always a good idea. If you book far enough ahead, it won't be Pebble Beach prices. It's a little gimmicky, but beats playing on tar greens!

Lovely Mid Day Lunch in the restaurant
Nov 2018 • Couples
Take a trip out to the Royal Golf Course to see the beautiful golf course and experience the ambiance of a great clubhouse. We visited with a friend who has moved to Bahrain and recently joined as a member.

It was lunch time, and we tried out the restaurant on the first floor. Staff were extremely friendly, good choice of options on the menu and the food was good. This is a really nice place to just go for a visit in the afternoon, have some food and enjoy the views.

Overall, a good experience and the next time I plan to bring the golf clubs and try out what looks like an excellent golf course.

Boring

Extremely overhyped brunch. Apparently it used to be good? Now a bit of Sushi and Carvery with very limited selection. Same with the alcohol. Very disappointed

Trying.
Sep 2018 • Couples
We planned a trip to the Royal Golf Club weeks ago. Every time I phoned the course to get information the person had a difficult time understanding my questions and giving information about tee times, etc. After a few times I finally received information but it took a lot of time and patience. When we arrived at the course we were told we had to play with other people, and this information was not provided beforehand. We were not expecting to play with others, and didn't really want to. The receptionist helped out and allowed us to play the back nine first, and then we got to play with the 2 of us as planned. We were also told that we would have to join others for the 2nd nine, but this didn't happen. Anyway, it seemed a bit unorganized at the beginning. We had to talk with the receptionist for 10-15 minutes to sort all of this out beforehand, but it all worked out in the end. Thank you. We appreciated the vouchers very much! Thanks!

First achievement progress dinner

Around 200 people were there at the royal club restaurant we enjoyed the food in the evening (buffet style) and the people went outside to have some beer and alcohol staff near the BAR.

The place is very nice and quit and you will see some people playing golf for enjoyment.

It good choice to go even if you are not Fan of golf 😉.

We are members at the Royal Golf Club. This place is amazing. The view is so relaxing. They serve delicious steaks at Links and have freshly made pizzas at the other restaurant. The pool is nice, including their big football court and kids play area.
