Architect

Peter Harradine

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.

It is a low scoring course with tight fairways and strategically placed bunker to make things tricky so the usual combination of accuracy off the tee as well as some solid putting is definitely key to posting a good score.

Fantastic course which hosts the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship every year in January with some of the best players in the world! Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose... pretty impressive line up over the last years! I guess that the secret to shooting a good round on this course is to be accurate of the tee as you can quickly have tough lies in the rough or waste areas. Hole 9 and 18 have amazing views with the Falcon style clubhouse in the background. My favorite stretch on this course are holes 10 (tough and narrow par 5), hole 11 (par 4 where you have to cut the corner off the tee) and hole 12 (par 3 over the water which can cause some drama). If you're planning a golf trip, I would recommend to stay at the Westin Hotel as it offers great service, spacious and beautiful rooms and it is located right on the resort. So you literally walk 2 minutes from your room to the 1st tee or driving range!
