Al Badia Golf Club by InterContinental Dubai Festival City is an 18-hole, championship golf course designed by the renowned Robert Trent Jones II featuring an award winning clubhouse, four dynamic restaurants, event spaces and a luxurious spa.


The par-72 Al Badia course was designed on an oasis theme and features abundant water, rivers of sand and plants indigenous to the Arabian Gulf. The prestigious course can be played from the maximum 7,303 yards for championship players, down to 5,398 yards for newer players.


Match your mood with four stunning restaurants - ‘Spikes’, ‘Blades’, ‘Tee Lounge’ and ‘Trent’s’ - presenting creative cuisine with attentive care at its finest. Our vast variety ensures something will always appeal, to golfer and non-golfer alike.

Unwind after a round of golf in your very own spa suite at the Spa InterContinental. Enjoy a signature, peak performance treatment or a relaxing, post-round Golf Ball Message.


Al Badia Golf Club is a prime destination for business meetings or social gatherings – allowing you to complement the occasion with a round of golf or succulent dining in a choice of venues. The outdoor venue space is fully licensed and serviced and has hosted such events as the Jazz Festival and the DXB Music Festival.
