In 1995 a man once said “Give me a patch of desert and I will give you a golf course to be proud of” - Peter Harradine. By 1998 a spectacular Championship Course emerged from the dust now to be recognised globally on the European Tour. Set in the shadow of the national symbol of the United Arab Emirates, the National Course, set at 7600 yards from the back tees provides a tough test for golfers of all abilities and will be sure to test all aspects of a golfer’s game. Each hole on our golf course has a unique layout offering risk and reward opportunities for those who dare to take on the National Course.
The Falcon clubhouse reflects the national symbol of the UAE and the historical associations with the country. According to Dr Sleiman Najm Khalaf, Heritage expert for the Abu Dhabi Authority for Culture and Heritage. “The falcon stands for valour and chivalry; a bird that fights for itself, that hunts for its food with elegance and ferocity.” An attribute needed for golfers to excel around such a demanding golf course. Comprised of three floors the iconic clubhouse can oversee unspoiled views of golfing perfection and is now instantly recognisable all over the world.

This oasis of tranquillity sculptured in the desert, Abu Dhabi Golf Club features 27 Championship holes of golf, over 162 hectares of land. The course features undulating terrain meandering through pockets of palms, ornamental trees and shrubs with seven spectacular saltwater lakes.
Situated majestically overlooking the golf course is the iconic, Falcon Clubhouse, built in the shape of a falcon with its wings outstretched, peering over the 9th and 18th greens. As you look across the lakes from the far end of the course, the clubhouse dominates the scene.
It is a spectacular, superbly-designed building that creates an atmosphere of relaxed elegance.
