“Wonderful view and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

Elegant decor greets you in the parking lot. Then you enter this palace nicely placed with a gorgeous view of the fairway from the restaurant/bar. The food is exquisit and reasonably priced, and the beer is cold. If you want to pick up a few items for gifts, the golf shop is stacked with bargains.

“A Green Retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

Beautiful manicured green area in the City.
Lots of facilities; health club, tennis courts, riding school & of course, Horse Racing. Visit the Licensed Club House during race evening.
Be careful of the food though.

“fantasy golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

If you're used to playing courses in the UAE you know that they can be very impressive. Perhaps its the contrast of lush grass with a background of sand and big buildings. But, by any standard they are breathtaking. Because they are built from scratch, the outcome of design seems to offer no compromise. Every hole is a treat. ADGC is the nicest golf course of the dozen or so I've played in AD and Dubai. Its challenging, makes you think about your shots, punishes you for bad decisions, but showing up at the tee box on each hole is like opening another Christmas present. We felt very lucky to be there. I played two rounds during our visit and on the first one I took unnecessary chances and underestimated the challenge of the greens, I paid. The second round was like a playing a whole new course and I ended up shooting a pretty good score. I found the staff in the pro shop annoyingly similar to those at the nicest courses i've played, as if they're doing you a favor by talking to you. Otherwise, Abu Dhabi Golf Course is a treat in every way. I highly recommend it.

“Excellent, hosting main events”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

If Tiger and Rory are visiting Abu Dhabi from times to times to play the HSBC Championship, there is a reason.
Of course beside the money for the winner, this course gives you always a lot of pleasure.
Challenging par 3, here and there, long PAR 4, all you need to enjoy a nice round of golf is there.
Located nearby the entrance of the city, it's very conveneint to reach.
The Pro Shop is well appointed and the club house offer large variety of F&B's
Defently a good choice to try, go for it

“Best golf course in Abu Dhabi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Still the best course in Abu Dhabi out of the three there are...challenging picturesque...greens need attention but they are getting better....the course will look perfect soon as we approach the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship in January. Friendly with first class facilities.
