Abu Dhabi Airports has announced plans to transform Al Ghazal Golf Club and Sports Resort - Abu Dhabi’s only sand golf course - into a nationwide recreational sporting hub.

The transformed golf destination expects to debut its enhanced look later this summer, a statement said.

It added that the property is currently undergoing refurbishments on five of its main facilities - 18-hole golf course and training centre, sports recreational centre, administration building, and its food & beverage outlets.

The resort will feature a paintball park, wall climbing facility, a simulation golf room, a skate board park, tennis courts, a shooting range, football pitch area, a gymnasium and a spa.

It also offers the amenities for MTV biking as well as a cycling and jogging track, and sand boarding, most of which will be available by the year-end of 2018, while the others will be worked on into 2019.

"The finished facility will boast a prestigious sand golf course, an assortment of recreational activities for adventure seekers, locker room expansions, new gaming facilities, and improved continental dining venues," the statement said.

Saoud Al Shamsi, acting chief commercial officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Al Ghazal Golf Club and Sports will be the most luxurious and exciting resort for sport lovers and families seeking an adventurous escape, or to unwind after a long day of work.

"This renovation project has been designed to create a wider golf club membership that ultimately establishes a big and prominent Al Ghazal Community.”
