International golfing legend Colin Montgomerie is responsible for the magnificent design of the 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course at the Royal Golf Club. The course hosted the European Tour’s inaugural Volvo Golf Champions tournament in January 2011 and more recently the maiden Bahrain Invitational in April 2012 which saw Monty and three other top tour golfers, Paul Casey, Thomas Bjorn and Suzann Pettersen, compete alongside international sporting celebrities tennis player Tim Henman, American footballer Joe Montana and footballers Ruud Gullit and Gianluca Vialli.
The Montgomerie championship course offers a truly unique blend of links and desert golf, taking advantage of Bahrain’s natural rough desert terrain and combining it with vast manmade lakes. The desert feel is retained through the use of sandy waste bunkers and the attractive indigenous vegetation and grasses used in the landscaping. However, the rolling links-style fairways and undulating greens are immaculately maintained. With five teeing ground options on each hole and a perfect layout for shot makers and strategic players, the Montgomerie championship course delivers a challenging and unforgettable experience.

When coming up with the designs for the Royal Golf Club’s two world class golf courses, Colin Montgomerie took inspiration from his years of experience of playing on some of the world’s best known links golf courses. Together with his team from European Golf Design, Monty carefully planned every hole to ensure that it would provide a challenge to golfers of all abilities, whether they are top international players or weekend hackers.
The Royal Golf Club’s 9-hole, par 3 Wee Monty course was designed by Colin Montgomerie specifically for less experienced golfers and is ideal for beginners.
It is a scaled down version of its big brother with holes ranging in length from 60 to 140 yards. Many of the shots experienced on the championship course are replicated on the academy course and as such it provides a test for golfers of all abilities while offering fun and entertaining playing experiences.

Please note that the Wee Monty is a walking only course. Golf carts are not permitted.
Golfing at night changes the very timbre of the game. Watching your ball streak up into the starlit night sky is a fabulous experience and the wavering shadows cast by the rolling fairways add a whole new dimension to the course.
With state-of-the-art floodlights installed on the back 9 holes of the Montgomerie course and across the whole of the Wee Monty Par 3 course, savour playing a relaxing round of golf in the cool of the evening, after a hard day’s work.
For the more competitive golfer, regular night golf leagues and tournaments offer exciting evening entertainment.
