The 27 holes of championship golf on offer at Abu Dhabi Golf Club are some of the very best you can hope to play in the entire Gulf region. The Championship Course is a tranquil oasis carved out of the desert and at 7,334 yards from the back tees it is more than long enough to test talented golfers. The perfect fairways weave their way through undulating terrain that features native palm trees, decorative plants and shrubs and seven salt water lakes. Generous greens are well protected by strategically placed bunkers so well struck shots from the fairways are a must. As the host of The Abu Dhabi Golf Championship which attracts the world's top golfers each year, anyone visiting Abu Dhabi Golf Club on their holidays is sure for a treat. Whilst the pros seem to breeze round the course well under par, for most club golfers playing off the yellow tees will have to play well to challenge their handicap with a premium on accuracy rather than length key to playing well here, courtesy of the deep fairway bunkers and snagging rough.
For those looking for a more relaxing round of golf there is also a par 36 nine hole track which is also a great place for beginners to begin their love affair with the game of golf. After dark this course comes alive under the floodlights with Night Golf. There is nothing better than seeing a white golf ball trace into the black sky around the pristine layout at Abu Dhabi, with a mixture of par-3's, 4's and 5's this makes for a great evening of golf.
2014 Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship
Spain’s Pablo Larrazábal held his nerve on the final green to deny a chasing pack including major champions Rory McIlroy and Phil Mickelson. The 30-year-old holed a five-foot birdie putt at the last for a closing five-under-par 67 and 14-under total. That left Mickelson needing an eagle from the middle of the fairway, but despite finding the green in two the American was unable to hole his putt from 50 feet. He finished alongside McIlroy at -13.
What the pro’s say:
“I've started here every year since I've been on Tour since 2007. I've been very successful. This is always a place where I like to come. There's more competition, but it's in general, I really enjoy coming here overall; the people, the golf course, the food, the hotel, everything feels really comfortable to me.” – Martin Kaymer
“We have got great practice facilities here, as well as a golf course that can identify your strengths and your weaknesses. It's a world class course and in immaculate shape and you can easily identify where you're playing well and where you're not.” – Phil Mickelson
“It's a golf course that's always sort of suited my eye. I've always done well here. I had a couple of chances to win, and Martin Kaymer was just too good those times. It’s a long golf course and you've got to hit it well off the tee and take advantage of the par fives, which I feel like I can do.” – Rory McIlroy

Also in contention on Sunday was the likes of Martin Kaymer, Victor Dubuisson and Thomas Pieters, which made for an excellent Sunday finish.

Would thoroughly recommend a trip out there to anyone, and for those worried that the 19th hole may be a little tame, then they need not worry.
