Yas Links Abu Dhabi represents the first true Links Golf Course in the Middle East region, designed by Kyle Phillips, one of the world’s leading golf course designers. The Championship Links course is located on the west shores of Yas Island, Abu Dhabi’s Island of Entertainment, also offering a luxurious clubhouse, gym, swimming pool, male spa and world-class, floodlit practice ranges, now with state of the art Toptracer range technology and Golf Academy. Dining options include our award winning Hickory’s restaurant with stunning views over the mangroves and Abu Dhabi skyline, and our Japanese restaurant MATSU. The Par 72 Championship Links course which has rolling hills and seashore green locations opened on schedule March 2010 and currently ranks 44th in Golf Digest’s Top 100 courses in the world, and 60th in the World by Platinum Clubs of the World. Yas Links Abu Dhabi also played host to the golf element of the 2019 Special Olympics World.

An oasis of tranquility carved out of the desert, Abu Dhabi Golf Club offers one of the most luxurious golf resort experiences in the Middle East and a facility of excellence. Overlooking the lakes from the far end of the course, the Falcon Clubhouse dominates the scene. Inside and out, the superbly designed building creates an atmosphere of relaxed elegance, one of the key characteristic of the design was to ensure that all three floors of the iconic clubhouse would be able to enjoy prominent and unhindered views across the 9th & 18th holes of our championship course designed by Peter Harradine. Constructed in 1995 the Falcon Clubhouse was built to be one of the most is not only instantly recognizable designs in the world. The 27 hole championship course, home to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA a Rolex series event, provides a tough but fair challenge, with lush fairways, strategically placed bunkers and generous greens. Described as a “super course” by leading sections of the golfing press, the 162 hectares of the Abu Dhabi Golf Club features one of the finest world-class 27-hole championship golfing facility in the Middle East.

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is the region’s first ocean golf course; the Gary Player-designed masterpiece respectfully harnesses the natural beauty of Saadiyat Island’s magnificent, white sand beaches for a truly unique playing experience. With the meandering, eco-conscious course providing stunning sea views, there’s also the chance to spot dolphins at play in the glistening Arabian Gulf. Three salt water lakes and restored beach and sand dunes provide majestic on-course hazards, while more than 60 bunkers force even the bravest to pause for thought on this challenging Par 72. Designed with amateurs and professionals in mind, carefully positioned tee boxes ensure the total yardage starts at 5,290, although the course can be extended to a whopping 7,784 yards for pros.

What does Minimum Number on Trip mean ?

Obviously a lot of organisation and expense goes into each of our tournaments so in order for any one trip to be viable we require a minimum of 24 guests on the majority of our trips.

Our trips are very popular so very few fail to achieve this threshold so we encourage you to book early to ensure your place.

Here’s how it works –

We set a ‘cut off date’ for determining if we have sufficient numbers for the trip. This is 180 days prior to the start date of the trip. This is because our resort and golf partners have blocked out a substantial number of rooms and tee times and if we are not going to proceed they need the opportunity to resell these.

When you book you will only be required to pay a £30 per person holding deposit – this is fully refundable should the trip not proceed. If the trip is confirmed but you decide that you no longer wish to join us you would forfeit this deposit.

If we do unfortunately have to advise you that we have not achieved the minimum number required to allow the trip to proceed you will have the option of continuing with the trip, but in the knowledge that the tournament will not be included. You will still benefit from the discounted prices that we have negotiated and will receive a £60 per person discount on the tournament inclusive price.

At 180 days prior to the trip commencing, once we have met the minimum number required, guests are required to pay a further deposit of £150 per person to confirm your place within 7 days.

The balance is then payable usually 45 days prior to the trip commencing.

Once we have confirmed that we have achieved the minimum number required for the trip to proceed we may occasionally offer ‘incentives’ to fill the trip. Rest assured that anyone already booked will benefit from the same ‘incentive’

What if the trip is cancelled after I have paid ?

Given the impact of Covid 19 on travel arrangements recently we have amended our cancellation policy to cover cancellation due to Covid (or any other major pandemic event).

If the resort is closed for the planned duration of the trip guests would be entitled to a full refund.

If the resort remains open but guests are unable to travel due to travel restrictions imposed either by the UK government or the host country government guests will be offered a credit against future tournaments at the same resort.

If guests choose to cancel for any other reason sorry but this would be loss of all monies paid.

What about Bad Weather

We have tried our best to plan our tournament destinations around weather seasons. However obviously we cannot absolutely guarantee the weather.

Our golf course partners will do everything possible to ensure that they course is fit for play following any adverse weather. It will be at the sole discretion of the golf courses to determine if the course is fit for play.

Green fees are not refundable in the event of golf course closure due to adverse weather conditions, nor other unpredictable reasons. Dom Pedro – Investimentos Turísticos, S.A. may, however, award players that have seen their game interrupted/suspended as a result of that, a personal and non-transferable rain voucher, valid for the period of one year from that date. In order to meet the requirements for a “rain voucher” players are requested to address reception desk immediately after game interruption/suspension. Players with 18-hole green fees who have been unable to complete their game, having played less than 9 holes, will be awarded an 18-hole “rain voucher”. Players with 18-hole green fees who have been unable to complete their game, having played more than 9 and less than 18 holes, will be awarded a 9-hole “rain voucher”.

It is completely at the tournament organisers discretion to amend the competition rules in the event of any adverse conditions. For example tournaments may be reduced to 18 or 36 holes if the course is closed for any period or ‘winter rules’ eg lift clean and place may be put in place.

Refunds cannot be issued for any other element of the trip unfortunately.

Can I book flights with Amatours ?

No sorry we do not book flights.

Most of our non UK tournaments are in destinations well served by ‘low cost’ airlines who do not pay agents a commission.

If we were to offer a flight booking service we would obviously require additional resources, licences and insurances and if we cannot cover the cost of these through commissions from the airlines we would have to pass these on in the price of our trips.

However one word of advice – as a very small number of our tournaments do not achieve the required minimum number of participants and therefore may be cancelled please do not book your flights until we have confirmed that we have achieved the prescribed minimum and that the tournament will be proceeding.

Whilst we do not book flights we do try to ensure that our guests do benefit from the very high numbers of passengers that enjoy our overseas trips each year and have negotiated special deals with our airline sponsors which you will be advised about at the time of booking.

What are the Prizes ?

We have negotiated a sponsorship package with each of our host resorts and golf courses which means that the first prize is the opportunity for the winning pair to ‘defend their title’ at the following year’s event.

In order to comply with R&A rule 3-2a winners will receive a voucher for the cost of the event or £500 per person, whichever is the lower. In order to protect our guests Amateur status there can be no cash alternative sorry.

There will also be prizes for the runners up, which may differ from tournament.

Each round there will be a voluntary Two’s pot. Again to comply with R&A rules this will be at the discretion of each player to determine if they want to participate in the Two’s pot. Those that do pay £10 / Euro10 on the first day to enter.

Available Extras

Single Room Supplement £on request per person

Extra Green Fee on request

If any guests wish to extend their stay either pre or post tournament this can be arranged for please request details and prices

Non Golfers

We recognise that a break from the day to day routine is precious time and some guests would want to bring a non playing partner with them. Non golfers are very welcome to join this trip.

This trip includes a substantial discount for any non golfers wishing to join.
