On Course: Al Badia Golf Club

Designed by the internationally renowned Robert Trent Jones II, this 18 hole par-72 Al Badia Championship Golf Course lays over 7,303 yards adjacent to Dubai Creek. The course is rich in water features, with eleven lakes and several smaller ponds and lush with plants indigenous to the Arabian Gulf.

The design is environmentally responsible – which is evident through the use of Paspalum grass, specifically SeaIsle 2000 on the greens and SeaIsle 1 on the tees and fairways – whilst providing a challenging round for the seasoned golfer and a memorable experience for the recreational player.

Al Badia’s design has achieved maximum variety with relation to the one existing site condition that was to remain untouched, the wind!

Key to this unique personality is the extensive incorporation of water throughout the golf course. Water moves throughout changing in presentation as it transitions from open water bodies to waterfalls downstream. Strategically, water is used as lateral hazards as well as to carry hazards on twelve holes.

The Robert Trent Jones II ‘River of Sand’ concept adds another layer of texture and design, derived from and is an extension of the lake and stream system that moves through the golf course. These areas provide a visually crisp hazard that, unlike a body of water, provides the golfer an opportunity to recover from an errant golf shot. Distance, length and direction, the strategic integrity of the course routing, is evident through these 3 factors. Multiple sets of tees have been factored on each hole with most offering a variety in teeing angle. The course can be played from the maximum 7,303 yards for championship and quality players, down to 5,398 yards for players with less skill or strength. Al Badia’s fairways are generous for the majority of golfers, narrowing as you move through to the landing areas. Variety is paramount.

Positioned in the most prominent location overlooking the 9th and 18th greens and enhanced by views of Al Badia’s dramatic waterfalls, is the iconic Al Badia Clubhouse. Likened to a swirling wind, the dynamic form of the clubhouse design quintessentially celebrates the human spirit and celebrates life’s possibilities. Al Badia golfers and visitors can relish in its first class hospitality and the comprehensive leisure alternatives presented within.
