Doha Golf Club, located in the exclusive West Bay area of Doha, boasts two immaculate golf courses, one of which is home to the annual European Tour Commercialbank Qatar Masters and the other is a fully floodlit nine-hole course. Designed by Peter Harradine, one of the world’s leading golf course architects, and unveiled in 1997, the 7,374-yard 18-hole Championship Course and floodlit nine-hole Academy Course provide a variety of challenges that will appeal to both the novice golfer and the seasoned professional.

As soon as one enters the Arabian-style clubhouse, with its marble interiors and outdoor terraces, one can feel the luxurious comfort of home. It features handmade gypsum, traditional artifacts and solid teak doors imported from Thailand and hand-engraved in Doha. Beautifully crafted marble, internal waterfalls and a central fountain create a cool and welcoming atmosphere.
