We were expecting a lot due to some of the posts and Youtube content that shows the course, unfortunately all the greens had recently been scarified, we were not informed about this prior to play (green fee at £150 each). A simple notice or being...More

Oceanic type course quite different from Yas Links and Abu Dhabi GCs. Bunkers galore and slick greens give a very tricky track. Wild gazelle/oryx, flamingos, eagles and other wildlife following you around, lots of water to contend with. As with most courses in Abu Dhabi,...More

This is a review of the golf course, so if you’re looking for a review that isn’t golf related, this isn’t the one for you. If you’re an avid golfer, read on :) I had my first round at Saadiyat many years ago, and it...More

Another new venue and new experience in very relaxing surroundings. Not being a golfer always wary of taking kids to a meal with serious golfers around but the terrace setting and garden opposite with the bouncy castle made this a very pleasant relaxing meal with...More

We tee’d off at 1.30 and by 5 o’clock we had just finished the 13th, very over crowded! No refund offered, or even a back 9’to finish what we started! Cost us £300 pound for two people and we only played 13. Awful awful service

You can tell that sand comes cheap in this country! I lost count of the bunkers and wastelands on this course after the first few holes and probably shot more bunker shots during one round than over a whole week elsewhere. The course is beautifully...More

The course was in the final stages of preparation for the Ladies European Tour event, so there was a load of work going on, TV towers, grandstands etc., but still it provided a wonderful day out.

Come to this brunch! The food is amazing! The service is spectacular and the drinks are on point. The live music is one of a kind. Truly, the cost is worth listening to her sing.

A beautiful course designed by Gary Player winding between the sand dunes and the shores of the Arabian Gulf. The service was excellent as one expects from a Troon managed course. The course itself was not in the best of condition but that is understandable...More

The capacity: The course is a typical 18 hole course. For an event that would be 144 golfers max. They have a restaurant that could support an event of that size.

I don't remember specifics, but the cost of drinks at the club house were in comparison with the rest of the area. They are willing to make your drinks to your specifications as well.
