Our History

The Abu Dhabi City Golf Club began life as the Abu Dhabi Golf & Equestrian Club in 1976. For 22 years it was an 18-hole sand course but, in 1998, it was transformed into Abu Dhabi’s first all grass course. Its then nine holes were designed by the respected British golf course designer Ian Scott Taylor.

Since then, thousands of golfers have enjoyed matching their skills against the tricky nine holes encircled by the Abu Dhabi Equestrian horse racing track in the Al Mushrif area, just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the capital city’s town centre.

Today, Abu Dhabi City Golf Club is the oldest Golf Course in Abu Dhabi.
