WITH the successful launch of the Covid-19 vaccine, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, Yas Links Abu Dhabi and Abu Dhabi Golf Club have started welcoming international golfers back.
Working with tour operators, these golf destinations allow guests to visit and play the country without the need for quarantine upon arrival in the country, in line with guidelines from the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee.
During the booking process, visitors can receive golf expert knowledge and confirm additional services such as hotel and restaurant bookings at preferential rates to ensure the best golf vacation possible.
With over 93% of eligible people now vaccinated in Abu Dhabi, the government is regularly expanding the countries on the Green List in accordance with international and national protocols to include entry into the emirate without quarantine from countries such as the USA, Germany, Italy and Spain to enable.
A strong increase in demand can therefore be expected for the coming (northern) summer.
Executive Director of the Abu Dhabi Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Marketing Ali Hassan Al Shaiba said, “Golf is an important part of the sporting ecosystem here. The three golf courses managed by Troon Golf complement our golf offer and attract professional and amateur players from around the world.
“It’s exciting to welcome international golfers back to challenge themselves on these beautiful courses in a safe and worry-free environment. The strict security measures that Abu Dhabi has put in place to protect residents and non-residents will reassure our golf visitors. “
For gourmets there is an international culinary offer, a casual atmosphere and friendly service in all three restaurants.
Yas Links Abu Dhabi, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and Abu Dhabi Golf Club have all conformed to government guidelines to implement health and safety measures to protect members, guests and staff in the clubs.
Additional measures include thermal scans at the entrance of each facility, strict social distancing measures, reducing the maximum capacity of all dining facilities, and several other protocols to ensure clubs can safely welcome players back.
