The Royal Golf Club is home to Bahrain's only 18 hole championship golf course and to a par 3 9-hole course, both designed by course architect and golfing legend Colin Montgomerie. The Club is managed by Troon, the leader in upscale golf course management, development and marketing, and was named Troon's 2013 Facility of the Year, the company's top accolade.
Additional facilities at the Royal Golf Club include award winning restaurants, a golf academy with full practice facilities, a golf & leisure shop, meeting and conference rooms and a country club.
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 course hosted the European Tour’s inaugural Volvo Golf Champions tournament in January 2011 and more recently the maiden Bahrain Invitational in April 2012 which saw Monty and three other top tour golfers, Paul Casey, Thomas Bjorn and Suzann Pettersen, compete alongside international sporting celebrities tennis player Tim Henman, American footballer Joe Montana and footballers Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli.
Wee Monty Course
The Royal Golf Club’s 9-hole, par 3 Wee Monty 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 provides a test for golfers of all abilities while offering fun and entertaining playing experiences.
