Abu Dhabi's Saadiyat Beach Golf Club has joined Al Mouj Golf in Muscat in gaining a United States Golf Association (USGA)-endorsed certification recognising world-class environmental practices in golf.
Players representing 18 nations teed it up in the inaugural Abu Dhabi Amateur Championship last December, wooed by the promise of valuable World Amateur Golf Ranking (WAGR) points. The lure will be even greater when Saadiyat Beach Golf Club hosts the second edition of the 54-hole strokeplay event from Dec. 15-18.
Starts in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship, Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Moonlight Classic Pro-Ams will again be the reward for the champions at the 11th Golf Digest Middle East Classic.
The dream of teeing it up with a superstar the likes of Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose, Jon Rahm or Shanshan Feng is again real for UAE amateurs with the launch of the 2018 Golf Digest Middle East Amateur Golf Series presented by King’s College Hospital London and AutoRoute.
Saadiyat Beach Golf Club has partnered with Abu Dhabi Golf Club to offer two further tournaments that will not only expose the Troon International managed sister properties to a wider amateur audience, but also the emirate’s tourism jewels.
