The Royal Golf Club will always be one of my favorite golf courses in the Middle East. It doesn’t have the status of some of the more well-known courses in the region, but in my opinion, it is right up there with the best of them. The course looks and feels really good.
Fairways are mown nicely, and the vibrant green stands out against the surrounding desert area. The greens are what I can only call exciting. With large contours, and protected by steep run-offs, you need to be able to hit the correct section of the green to leave an easy two putt.
The layout of the course is a nice challenge for all golfers. With a good mix of holes, it really keeps you on your toes. The last four closing holes are great holes to finish your round. With water coming into play and tight landing areas on these holes, to walk away with four closing pars takes a lot of skill and is no easy feat. If you have a good score going coming into the last four holes you will need every ounce of concentration to keep that going for the final stretch!
