Al Badia Golf Club by InterContinental Dubai Festival City boasts an 18-hole championship golf course designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones II, as well as award winning club house facilities. This serene and picturesque setting beautifully complements the five dynamic bars and restaurants of Al Badia Golf Club, including the signature ‘Terra Firma’ steakhouse, the Asian-fusion ‘Blades’ restaurant, chic ‘Tee Lounge’ and exclusive ‘Trent’s’ bar.
Capturing the character and beauty of Arabia, the finely manicured grounds showcase a magical desert oasis theme, including 11 lakes, several ponds and numerous cascading waterfalls. Plants and trees are indigenous to the Arabian Gulf, while the rivers of sand concept adds further texture to the design – providing a visual extension of the lakes and streams.
A challenge for the seasoned golfer, Al Badia also welcomes the recreational player. The par-72, 7,303-yard course offers four tee positions on each hole, giving every handicap an appropriate level of play.
Al Badia Golf Club is also home to the region’s only TaylorMade Performance Lab golfing academy, for seasoned golfers to fine-tune their swing, or the novice to learn their first pointers.
The golf course is managed by the neighbouring InterContinental Dubai Festival City, which offers its guests a 30% discount on green fees, including complimentary transfers to and from the golf club.
