The National course is the main evidence of the interest in golf in Abu Dhabi, where the game has developed more slowly than in neighboring Emirates such as Dubai. Indeed, in Abu Dhabi as elsewhere in the Middle East, the popularity of Western sports in general as much reflects a desire to demonstrate openness to European and American culture as it does the intention to produce star athletes. Peter Harradine, known for work in nearby Doha and Ras al Khamaiah, constructed out of bare desert a course at the center of a residential development. Harradine sculpted gentle relief onto the flat plain and ringed the water hazards with stone walls in a nod to native Arabic construction. The Abu Dhabi Championship attracts a distinguished field as part of the European Tour, but the course remains playable for anyone with a sensible tee selection.

One of the best courses in Middle East! The best is to try and play it just after the HSBC Championship – the course stays at the same condition with a very thick rough which is tough for anyone! The clubhouse is really cool as well and the vies on 18th green is one of the best you cannot in golf. Not too impressed with the restaurant there though, but the atmosphere at the club house is really great.

It is not a secret that Abu Dhabi Golf Club is one of my favorite golf courses in the world. I enjoy playing the course because of the challenges it provides. You have to hit every kind of shot (fade and draw) and I really like the greens. The course suits my eye very well. My favorite hole is the par 5 18th. To me it is one of the best par 5's on tour. The tee shot fits my eye and ball flight perfectly. The second shot is great too and most of the time I can reach the green in 2 shots. I have great memories from this hole, especially from 2008 when I won my first European Tour event here. My Abu Dhabi experience in one word: unforgettable.
