Yas Links GC - 13th hole

Abu Dhabi’s three championship-ready golf courses have dominated the prestigious regional golf course rankings list compiled by Golf Digest Middle East magazine.

Yas Links Golf Club, set against dramatic views of the Arabian Gulf, was crowned the region’s best facility by the editorial panel, while Abu Dhabi Golf Club - host venue for next month’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship - and the Gary Player-designed Saadiyat Beach Golf Club placed third and sixth.

Abu Dhabi ranked even higher in its reader’s poll, with all three Emirates championship courses ranking in the top four.

“These vital recognitions highlight the significant progress Abu Dhabi has made as a world-class golf tourism destination,” said Dayne Lim, Director, Product Development Division, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority.

The ADTA recently launched ‘Golf in Abu Dhabi’,featuring a diverse range of golf-driven packages and experiences, to make it easier than ever before for international golfers to visit one of golf’s most exciting and desirable destinations.
