Golf Courses

Al Badia Course
18 holes
Par 72
Designed by Robert Trent Jones II
Capturing the character and beauty of Arabia, the 18-hole, par-72 Al Badia course was designed on an oasis theme by internationally renowned golf architect Robert Trent Jones II . The championship course features abundant water, rivers of sand and plants indigenous to the Arabian Gulf.

Water moves throughout the course. The layout incorporates eleven lakes, several smaller ponds, streams and numerous cascading waterfalls. Strategically, water is used for lateral hazards as well as carry hazards on twelve of the holes.

The 'rivers of sand' concept adds another layer of texture to the design providing a visual extension of the lakes and streams. These sand areas provide visually crisp playing surfaces that, unlike bodies of water, give a golfer the opportunity to recover from an errant shot.

Providing a challenging round for the seasoned golfer, Al Badia is also welcoming for the recreational player. Four sets of tees are featured on each hole - with most offering a variety of teeing angles. The course can be played from the maximum 7,303 yards for championship players, down to 5,398 yards for newer players.
