Head to Abu Dhabi for world-class (and warm!) golf this winter

Abu Dhabi Gc

For most golfers, it’s impossible to think of Abu Dhabi without thinking of Abu Dhabi Golf Club and its iconic Falcon clubhouse – the home of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, presented by EGA.

Abu Dhabi Golf Club has crowned many great champions over the years, such as Martin Kaymer, Rickie Fowler and Tommy Fleetwood, with the tournament a mainstay on the European Tour calendar.

In part, the world-famous conditioning and management is a result of Abu Dhabi GC’s relationship with Troon, the world leader in upscale golf course management.

Its sister course, the Gary Player-designed Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, is also widely revered. Also managed by Troon, it too hosts a major golf event – the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open on the Ladies European Tour.

As a snapshot into some of Abu Dhabi’s most popular tourist attractions, there is Ferrari World, which is home to the world’s fastest rollercoaster, and the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, which was voted the world’s second favourite landmark by TripAdvisor.

Art lovers can enjoy the newly opened Louvre Abu Dhabi, while Yas Waterworld and Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi both provide hours of fun for people of all ages.

• Courses that should be on EVERY golfer's Bucket List

In terms of accommodation, The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf & Spa Resort is highly regarded, where every single room overlooks the course. If this sounds like your type of holiday, packages this winter are available from £500 to £1,200 per golfer.
