Saadiyat Beach, Abu Dhabi

The soon-to-open Saadiyat Beach Golf Club – the Arabian Gulf’s first and only ocean front course hosted a once-in-a-lifetime Gary Player golf clinic for more than a dozen of Abu Dhabi’s leading junior golfers last week.

The session was arranged by Saadiyat Beach Golf Club’s master developer, Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), as part of the Abu Dhabi government’s long-term commitment to developing the emirate’s aspiring sport enthusiasts at the grass-roots level.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club – which is located on the flagship Saadiyat Island project, the global leisure, residential and cultural destination under development by TDIC – is situated just 500 metres offshore from Abu Dhabi’s city centre.

The amphitheatre-style Par 72 course, which has been designed in a classic ‘figure of eight’ with over a third of the course having views of the Saadiyat coastline will officially open to the public in February 2010.
