The championship course of Royal Golf Club at Riffa, designed by Colin Montgomerie, blends elements of links and desert golf. Ever-since its opening on 1st January 2009, the Royal Golf Club has hosted several leading tournaments including the Gulf Air International Pro-Captain Challenge, and the annual IADC Golf Day, one of the largest tournaments with more than 200 competitors.
Recently, the club hosted Bahrain’s first European Tour event, the Volvo Golf Champions, which was a huge success. The next Volvo Tournament of Champions will take place during the month of January.
The Royal Golf Club offers a range of golfing events all through the year from international tournaments featuring world’s top professionals to members competitions, and friendly night golf leagues. This could also be the right place for beginners, who can try their hand at the nine-hole Academy course. Apart from this, there are several social events being organized such as fun quiz nights, members’ cocktail receptions and more.
