Abu Dhabi Golf Club Claims Best Course in the Middle East

For the second straight year, Abu Dhabi Golf Club has been awarded Best Course in the Middle East at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit Awards.

The course played host to the European Tour’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship in January.

This award joins an impressive tally of awards for Troon-managed Abu Dhabi Golf Club including Middle East Golfer’s Best Improved Facility award 2011 and Golf Journal Travel Award’s Newcomer Destination of the Year 2011.

Abu Dhabi Golf Club’s facilities were significantly enhanced with the opening of The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf & Spa Resort.

This hotel sits alongside the famous Falcon clubhouse and guests are able to walk a few yards straight from the hotel to the first tee.

Meanwhile Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, another Troon-managed venue, was named first runner up for Best Pro Shop in Asia Pacific.

This award capped a memorable night at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit awards for these two Abu Dhabi properties, which were developed by the Tourism Development & Investment Company.

“This performance reinforces Abu Dhabi Golf Club and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club’s position as leading venues in the Middle East and the appeal of Abu Dhabi has as a destination in Asia Pacific for golf and leisure travellers,” said Troon Group General Manager Chris Card.
