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. It is composed of the 18 hole National Course and the 9 hole Garden Course which have been designed by the Architect Peter Harradine.

Boat racing is a very popular sport in Abu Dhabi. This includes the traditional row-boat and dhow sailing races.

Dhow cruising in Abu Dhabi is the right way of sightseeing the Gulf waters and numerous islands scattered around the city. Dhows are originally wooden sailing boats which have been used by merchants for centuries. But the modern Dhows with traditional design offers the latest facilities. 

 

Near Port Zayed on the north-eastern tip of the island is an active dhow harbour, starting point of regular dhow sailing races. 

 

Bateen Shipyard is a dhow shipyard located on the west side of Abu Dhabi island. It is well worth visiting. Most of the boats built here are sleek racing rather than trading dhows.
