Qatar is a designer holiday destination boasting a stunning skyline and a carefully preserved heritage. Golf is one of the finer luxuries enjoyed by discerning tourists in Qatar. The nation offers some of the best greens on the planet. Listed here are top golf courses in Qatar.


The Doha Golf Club

The Doha Golf Club was designed by Peter Harradine. Opened in the 1990s, this was the nation's first grass course. Since its inception, the golf club has been a favourite venue for several European and Asian tournaments. Doha Golf Club boasts an 18-hole championship course as well as a 9-hole academy course. The 18-hole course hosts the Qatar Masters and is a lovely course to navigate with rock formations and water features, offering plenty of challenges. That being said, the course is not only for long-hitting professionals. Novices too can enjoy the forward hitting tees and make use of the putting green and driving range. To make the most of this championship course, choose accommodation at a popular Doha golf hotel. There are plenty of good options like Al Najada Doha Hotel by Tivoli, located only 23 minutes from the club.

Open to novices and golfers of varying skill levels, Doha Golf Club's 9-hole Academy Course is a less demanding course. The fairways here are much larger and there are fewer hazards with shorter holes. This makes it perfect for even seasoned golfers to enjoy a quick game or two. The course is floodlit, so you can enjoy a game – be it day or night.
