Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), the Abu Dhabi-based master developer of Saadiyat Island and its stunning Saadiyat Beach Golf Club designed by 8-time major winner Gary Player, are delighted to celebrate the first anniversary of the gulf’s first and only beachfront golf course.

Launched at the inaugural Saadiyat Beach Classic hosted by Player, the picturesque venue has received critical acclaim from the world’s golf and travel media since opening to the public in March 2010.

With unrivalled panoramic ocean views and expansive bunkering, the championship course has been particularly acknowledged for its rapid maturity and excellent conditioning, having received numerous awards over the past 12 months, including “Best Golf Course” in the Middle East and Africa, at the 2010 CNBC Property Awards.

With a host of new developments coming to the Island in the near future, in addition to the existing Golf Academy and exquisite Hawksbill Restaurant, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club looks set to become one of golf’s most highly sought golfing developments.

“It is a great feeling for all the team involved to celebrate a milestone of a year and look back on how far we have come. The facility continues to progress and our course will be “framed” by 9 exclusive hotels and we eagerly anticipate the opening of our first 2 great hotels; Park Hyatt and St Regis which will enhance our growing international golf market,” commented Ray Manulat, General Manager, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.

“Together with the Monte Carlo Beach Club due to open in April we are blessed to have these world class facilities at our doorstep and watch the evolution of Saadiyat Island into an international hub for tourism and leisure,” he continued

Managed by Troon Golf, the world’s largest golf management company, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is the flagship sports facility on Saadiyat Beach, a future magnet for high-end visitors and residents with its host of exclusive 5-star resorts that will create one of the world’s most premium and stylish destinations.
