Golfing in Abu Dhabi

Golfing is one of the major activities in the Emirates. Abu Dhabi offers a range of beautifully located golf courses with breathtaking views and award-winning designs.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club
Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is located just across the hotel and can be easily reached within five minutes by car. Designed by golfing legend Gary Player, the eighteen hole masterpiece golf club is the Arabian Gulf’s first and only ocean course, with beach front holes on the iconic island. The amphitheatre-style 72 Saadiyat Beach Golf Club features spectacular views of the Arabian Gulf, with over a third of the course having views of the Saadiyat coastline where dolphins are regularly spotted.

Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi offers special golf packages for hotel guests. To arrange your booking please contact our Concierge team on +971 2 407 1234 or email abudhabi.park@hyatt.com.

With the meandering, eco-conscious course providing stunning sea views, there is also the chance to spot dolphins at play in the glistening Arabian Gulf. Three salt water lakes and restored beach and sand dunes provide majestic on-course hazards, while more than sixty bunkers force even the bravest to pause for thought on this challenging par 72.

Designed with amateurs and professionals in mind, carefully positioned tee boxes ensure the total yardage starts at 5,290, although the course can be extended to a whopping 7,784 yards for pros.

The clubhouse is renowned as a dining treat, and has a great terrace for prize-giving ceremonies or outdoor socialising.

Yas Links Abu Dhabi
On the west shores of Yas Island, the Yas Links Abu Dhabi golf course features a 7,450 yard, par 72 course, utilising five teeing grounds per hole, with eighteen benefiting from ocean views. The golf course offers an eighteen hole course, a nine hole academy course, clubhouse, golf academy and floodlit practice facilities.  Located approximately fifteen minutes from the hotel, our guests benefit from specially designed packages. Please contact our concierge for more information and to arrange your booking.

Set among rolling hills and delicate mangrove plantations, Yas Links Abu Dhabi – designed by Kyle Phillips, the world-renowned course architect – is Arabia’s only true links course.

Nestled on the western shores of Yas Island - Abu Dhabi’s landmark entertainment destination - every daunting, dynamic Yas Links hole has sparkling coastline views of the Arabian Gulf: indeed, eight run right up along the coastline. A favourite with UAE-based players, the course has been named amongst the world’s most beautiful by MSN UK, the online news, sport and entertainment provider.

Voted among the ‘Top 10 New International Golf Courses’ by the USA’s influential Golf Magazine, and named one of the world’s top 25 by US publication Golf Digest, the Par 72 championship course stretches to a demanding 7,450 yards, while a nine-hole Par 3 academy course, floodlit practice facilities and luxurious clubhouse further complement the offering.

Abu Dhabi Golf Club
The par 72, 7,334 yard Championship course provides a tough-but-fair challenge, with eighteen holes of lush fairways, strategically placed bunkers and generous greens. The 3,299 yard, par 36 nine is more forgiving, making it an enjoyable experience for all players. The 27 hole championship course is located twenty minutes from the hotel.

Abu Dhabi City Golf Club

Tee off with Abu Dhabi’s soaring skyline as a backdrop, or lengthen your day by booking a twilight round under the city’s night sky: the UAE capital’s first nine hole facility - also known as ‘The People’s Golf Course‘ - offers golfers a playing environment unlike any other in the emirate.

Open to members and visitors, Abu Dhabi City Golf Club - which has the only two-tiered driving range in Abu Dhabi – sits conveniently in the heart of the city, and is an ideal venue to escape the hustle and bustle or cap off a day of business meetings or sightseeing.  Crucially for business travellers, overhead lights cater for tee-times until 9:00pm.

There is a notoriously difficult test through holes 7 and 9.  Dubbed ‘Amen Corner’ by locals, the par 3, par 5 and par 4 trio is arguably Abu Dhabi’s closest match to the harrowing hole 11 to hole 13 stretch at Augusta National Golf Club.

Elsewhere, newly relaid greens and a brand new fleet of GPS-equipped golf carts add to a compelling urban golf experience.

Distance from Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas: 30 km (18.6 miles)
