AL Dhafra Golf Club
The Al Dhafra Golf Club, a unique club in its own way, which is located in Ruwais, nearly 250km from Abu Dhabi, the capital of UAE. There on a peacefull spot, where the desert meets the see, you can find the golfcourse.
Our beautifully tended 9-hole, 5,754 yard par 72 sand course is located near the coast, alongside the Al Dhafra Beach Hotel and enjoys panoramic views over the Arabian Gulf and the nearby massive Oil refinery. The course was build to satisfy the thirst for golf which every dedicated member of the then construction team needed quelling! The grand opening was in 1988 - two years after the idea was first mooted.
As the only golf course in Al Gharbia, the western region of Abu Dhabi Emirate, the Al Dhafra Golf Links is mainly sponsored by the neighbouring oil companies and by organised events sponsored by companies in the locality.
Visitors can see Sir Baniyas Island, the home to rare wildlife.
Al Dhafra Golf Club is located at East of Al Dhafra Beach Hotel and Danat Jebel Dhanna Resort.
Small track on right hand side just after hump before round about at Al Dhafra Beach Hotel.
To get there take main road E11 direction Sila and Saudi border.
The journey on the E11 highway will take at least 2 hours from Abu Dhabi.
We are located at Jebel Dhana being an exit to the right just after Mile Stone 99 on the E 11 ( Al Sila Road).
Driving from Sharjah/Dubai, you take Emirates Rd E 311 or Sheikh Zayed Road and turn off right when you see signs to E 11 signed as Tarif, Al Sila. This right turn is actually a fly-over that takes you left so that you go onto a bridge over SZR. You then stay on that road all the time, until you reach exit 142, following signs for Ruwais until pass the industrial area on your right hand side where shortly after you see the hotel and golf club signs exits.
Follow that road for about 4 km and take the exit to the right. Go straight on the first round about and after the hump before next round about, you take the sandy track on your right. This will take you up to our parking and clubhouse.
