Abu Dhabi reveals NEW golf clubhouse

Frank Gehry-designed clubhouse for a golf course in Abu Dhabi have been revealed.

The Saadiyat Beach Golf Course has been designed by South African Gary Player and is being developed by the Abu Dhabi-based Tourism Development & Investment Company.

Covering 18,000sq m, the clubhouse will include a boutique hotel with 26 deluxe rooms as well as two restaurants, a spa and a golf shop.

Gehry said: “We are just at the beginning of the detailed design of the clubhouse and are very pleased with the progress thus far. The design is intended to be an ephemeral mirage floating above the greens.”
