Abu Dhabi Golf Club and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club are proud to support the inaugural Abu Dhabi Golf Festival which invites golfers from across the globe to visit the booming Emirate region for a week of luxurious golf and premium hospitality and entertainment.
The week-long festival, held from 1st to 8th December 2017, is presented by golf.extra and offers avid golfers a unique opportunity to explore the very best of Abu Dhabi, on and off-course.
Golfers will be treated to two rounds at the sensational Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, the region’s first oceanfront course which surprises and delights with its stunning scenery of clear ocean, blue skies and resident gazelles and hawksbill turtles. Recently rising to global recognition, the Gary Player designed championship course welcomed the Ladies European Tour to Abu Dhabi for the first time ever as it played host to the inaugural Fatima bint Mubarak Ladies Open.
A chance to walk the fairways at the Home of Champions also awaits golfers as they are invited to play a round at the home of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Follow in the footsteps of Rickie Fowler, Martin Kaymer and Paul Casey and take on the award-winning layout.
Two rounds on the premier Yas Links complete the championship golf itinerary where guests will be challenged to a friendly format of 18 hole Singles Stroke Play Stableford with the best three of five rounds counting for the player’s total score. A prize giving and farewell dinner to round-up the event sees the week resemble that of a professional tournament.
To ensure the week off-course is as equally luxurious as on-course, the package will include airport and golf transfers, as well as a 7 night, half board stay at the five star Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi Resort.
Clinton Norris, Sales Manager of Abu Dhabi Golf Club & Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is delighted to present this new amateur tournament week to the market. He said: “The Abu Dhabi Golf Festival is a unique competition week that we invite all tour operators to take advantage of and sell to their customers.
“Played across the three Championship golf courses in Abu Dhabi and hosted at the iconic Yas Viceroy Hotel, we are very much looking forward to welcoming all levels of golfers from across the world to our wonderful golf destination.
