International golfing legend Colin Montgomerie is responsible for the magnificent design of the 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course at the Royal Golf Club.
The new Montgomerie course offers a truly unique blend of links and desert golf, taking advantage of Bahrain’s natural rough desert terrain and combining it with vast manmade lakes. The desert feel is retained through the use of sandy waste bunkers and the attractive indigenous vegetation and grasses used in the landscaping. However, the rolling links-style fairways and undulating greens are immaculately maintained. With five teeing ground options on each hole and a perfect layout for shot makers and strategic players, the Montgomerie course delivers a challenging and unforgettable experience.
The Royal Golf Club’s 9-hole, par 3 academy course was designed by Colin Montgomerie specifically for less experienced golfers and is ideal for beginners.
It is a scaled down version of its big brother with holes ranging in length from 60 to 140 yards. Many of the shots experienced on the championship course are replicated on the academy course and as such it will provide a test for golfers of all abilities while offering fun and entertaining playing experiences.
