Golf In Abu Dhabi moving on to a new level.

It’s out on its own and Sat Nav gets you there but limited signage there is a golf club approaching – sits between York and Scarborough
Not overly enthusiastic from the pro-shop to the bar they said hello because we were there but no “chat” – it’s not an easy place to get to at least be thankful that we did!
From covered bays to a great short game area you are well served to be prepared for what lies ahead. The putting green is fast and true and unlike so many courses are exactly what you are going to get when you start.
Dress code – you need to be aware, the Thirsk room is smart casual, no golf shoes or waterproofs. The Vardon and Dining Room are Jacket and Tie from 10.30 am, traditional and we don’t mind that. Visitors need to respect and be aware. Changing rooms do exactly what they are meant to and can’t fault.
This is why we are here and it doesn’t disappoint, my golf did but you have to heed to what’s in front of you and this course is 100 years in the making. There are trees, heather and bunkers that all welcome an errant shot but this is a true test of golf and why it is always mentioned as a top top golf course.
It is a bit even when talking to them on the phone but they know what they are and if you are ok with that embrace it.
Absolutely but need my “A” game
The course did not disappoint I heard great stories about it and was excited to play the course, measuring just under 7000 yards off the back this is a true test even at 6000 yards for the Ladies its tough. Took me a while to “get” the club – but once I got it I was fine, just be prepared for a Yorkshire welcome – once they know you though friends for life.
