Golf Clubs in Qatar
Doha Golf Club
Doha Golf Club is the only grass golf course in Qatar. It has an 18-hole Championship Course, a nine-hole Academy Course, a large driving range and putting green, eight artificial lakes, beautiful landscaping with 5000 shrubs, 6000 trees, 10 000 cacti, and a traditional Arabic styled clubhouse perched atop the highest part of the course.
The Championship Course can be a challenging course with lakes doubling as eye candy as well as obstacles while the Academy Course is less demanding for beginners or a quick game for more seasoned players.
The 7,312 yard, 18-hole Championship course and floodlit nine-hole Academy course are open daily to members and non-members.
In addition to a state-of-the-art teaching and practice facility with custom-built chipping, putting and bunker areas, the Club is also home to a number of restaurants, lounges and conference rooms.
Since 1998, the Doha Golf Club has hosted the Qatar Masters tournament, a regular feature on the European Tour schedule.
