Abu Dhabi lies on a T-shaped island jutting into the Persian Gulf from the central western coast and is located to the south east of Dubai, with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia across its southern border. Built on the back of extraordinary oil and gas reserves, Abu Dhabi is phenomenally wealthy and is becoming increasingly cosmopolitan.
The increased opening of Abu Dhabi is being helped by the emirate’s efforts to become the cultural capital of the U.A.E; the highlight of this is the $200 million project currently underway to turn Frank Gehry’s design for a Guggenheim into reality. The golfing focus is on the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, which is becoming increasingly well known. The emirate is just a 45-minute drive from Dubai, which is a more developed golf destination; why not bolt on a short trip to Abu Dhabi during your golf holiday in Dubai?
