The Royal Golf Club’s two golf courses offer something for golfers of all abilities, The Colin Montgomerie-designed Championship course presents a challenging option for even the most seasoned golfer but also appeals to the less experienced as there are plenty of holes giving risk/reward opportunities for those daring enough to take them.

The 9 hole par 3 Wee Monty course provides a relatively gentle introduction to the sport for beginners but, like the Championship course, offers more demanding options to more experienced golfers wishing to work on their short game.

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.

The Montgomerie championship course offers a truly unique blend of links and desert golf, taking advantage of Bahrain’s natural rough desert terrain and combining it with vast manmade lakes. The desert feel is retained through the use of sandy waste bunkers and the attractive indigenous vegetation and grasses used in the landscaping. However, the rolling links-style fairways and undulating greens are immaculately maintained. With five teeing ground options on each hole and a perfect layout for shot makers and strategic players, the Montgomerie championship course delivers a challenging and unforgettable experience.
