One of the better courses in Abu Dhabi, expect many and big bunkers. Good quality greens and fairways. Convenient practice areas just before tee 1. Enjoyable course, but expensive like all courses in Adu Dhabi.

This is a great course. It is very challenging as you have to place your shots very carefully. Stay out of the rough as your ball will be lost.

You pay money to line people up and ask them to practice golf in a sand pit. Cannot get a firm stance and cannot get a decent lie. Then you herd everybody together so when one person takes a divot the person beside gets covered in sand. Its a disgrace. The balls are worn out and scuffed. Plus the golf... More

This is the second time I have played this course. Unfortunately the morning I played this time there was a thick blanket of fog. It was difficult to see where my ball went let alone enjoy the views However it was an enjoyable experience. One issue that I might add is that it was a very slow round of golf.

I love it here, the sheer volume of sand makes it a fusion of the desert & beach. Some great holes especially on the back 9. It's s shame that so much building is going which has harmed the views of hole 6. The clubhouse is good and they do a great BBQ. At weekends they put screens up to... More

One of the most beautiful courses I have played. Sea views and most challenging course. Club house and restaurant are great and staff very helpful. Good contrast to play this and Abu Dhabi golf club

For the price we paid I would have expected better conditions. The greens were slow and full of ball and cleat marks. A lot of the course is surrounded by construction which is so What distracting. The one positive thing is that the staff were very welcoming and helpful.

Great course. Played last week before a big tour event. Views of the sea are great. Small Dhabi's (deer) all over the course and looking s of bird life. If being picky the clubhouse feels quite small and the Driving range isn't great - very sandy with grass breaks up very easily. Short game area excellent though. All in all... More

SBGC used to be a club with reasonably priced simple good food served by attentive staff. It is now "managed" by someone who is rude and clearly lacks in management skill or experience in hiring or training staff. Consequently, the staff can't get the basic orders for drinks or dinners right. A real shame as this used to be a... More
