Riffa Golf Club has been awarded second place by the Business Traveller Middle East Awards in the “Best Golf Course in the Middle East” category.
“We were absolutely delighted to receive this news,” says Riffa’s sales and marketing manager, Maeve Galvin. “In the readers’ poll we were voted second best golf course in the Middle East, which considering all the fabulous golf clubs located in the Emirates is a huge honour. The Emirates Golf Club received first place in the poll and The Montgomerie, also in Dubai, was third.”
Riffa Golf Club is Bahrain’s only grass, 18-hole championship standard golf course. The 6817-yard, par 72 course was designed by Karl Litten and opened in 1999. The Club launched “Night Golf” in June 2002 with the inauguration of floodlights on holes 10-18 and the lights are widely acclaimed as being the best in the Middle East.
Open to members and visitors alike, the Club averages approximately 3,000 rounds per month. A fully-equipped golf academy, three full time PGA golf professionals, a well-stocked golf shop and two five-star restaurants are just some of the facilities available at Riffa.
