The game of golf is so widely played in the UAE that golf courses are now intricately ingrained in the country’s landscape. With many international tournaments featuring world-class players being held here, golf is truly one of the country’s national pastimes.
Living within walking distance from a stunning golf course need not be a dream anymore as there are several golfing communities all over the country. One of these is Golf Gardens located in Abu Dhabi’s Khalifa City A. It is a freehold development built especially for UAE nationals.
The premium residential community mainly comprises luxury villas with pools and townhouses in varying sizes, from three-bedroom to six-bedroom units. The houses come in six types: Gardenia, Khuzama, Jouri, Lailak, Orchid and Narjis. Golf Gardens’ central feature is the Gardens Club Community Centre designed to be the heart of the community and a place where residents could meet and socialise. It is surrounded by central lawns that are open for residents to use as they wish.
The centre is home to a sports area, clubhouse, gym, swimming pool, children’s play area, squash court, multi-purpose tennis court, and sauna and steam rooms.
There is also a resident’s barbecue area and even a community hall for community events. Retail and service outlets, dining establishments and beauty salons are available as well.
Of course, the main appeal of Golf Gardens is the residents’ unparalleled access to the Abu Dhabi Golf Club as well as the nearby Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa for dining options and other recreational activities.
Golf Gardens is just a 15-minute drive from the heart of Abu Dhabi and a 45-minute drive from Dubai. For residents’ retail needs, and leisure and recreational pursuits, Yas Island is less than 10 minutes away.
