Bahrain's first international 18 hole grass golf course is a
remarkable oasis of luscious fairways and immaculate greens featuring five lakes and more than 600 date palms.
It is beautifully landscaped with desert-sand rough offering a challenging game to all.
To make the academy course even more challenging, regular "PowerPlay Golf" events will be organised.
The course will feature high-tech floodlighting allowing players to enjoy their golf well into the night.
The Royal Golf Club forms the centerpiece of Riffa Views, a luxury lifestyle community in the heart of Bahrain.
If you like playing golf in the middle of a building site this is for you.
A good golf course designed by Monty spoilt by the building of hundreds of houses around the course which makes it noisy and unpleasant
The cost of 70BD for 18 holes is around 190 usd which is quite a lot for dodging construction workers whilst you are waiting to tee off.
Shame - its a good course but one to miss with Doha and Dubai so close. Colin Nunn July 26, 2009
Course provides a challenge to all golfers. Fairways are undulating with little prospect of a flat lie if you haven't played to a position. Approach to most greens are protected by bunkers or grass swales.
All greens present a challenge with 3 to 4 levels on every one.
Best time to play the course is early morning or a twilight round from April to October as the heat can be oppressive.
Course is over sown in November with the full benefit being from December to March. One of the tougher courses in the middle east worth a look if you a mid handicapper. High handicappers will be frustrated.
