Dirab Golf Course & Country Club Located 45 kilometers south west of Riyadh and nestled in the picturesque Tawfiq valley, Dirab Golf and Country club is considered to be a favorite haven for the affluent.
The exclusive estate boasts of lush tree-lined fairways, perfectly manicured greens and a desert mountain skyline on its horizon. Its executive country club and equestrian stables make for the ultimate hideaway for high-living Riyadhis.
Ibrahim Abunayyan and Sons built and developed the Dirab Golf and Country Club at a time when the city was in need of it and surely it has garnered quite an impressive list of platinum membership holders and corporate patrons that has made it one of the exclusive go-to places for their executives and global guests.
Being the first grassed 18-hole Par 72 Championship and 9-hole Par 27 Academy golf course in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia; Dirab Golf Course has been the venue for both international and local golf tournaments. The contour of the entire course was designed to make use of its unique desert landscape, hence, it comes naturally for professional golfers and amateurs alike, who have considered it both a challenge worth overcoming as well as astoundingly beautiful.
Whenever we would visit Dirab, it always felt like being somewhere outside of the Kingdom. As a child I would sometimes pretend that I was in a Nevada ranch as I walked by its stables filled with the finest Arabian horses.
Following with the tradition of being a well-reputed equestrian sanctuary; the Dirab Polo Club was established in 2010 and it has certainly received quite an elite following, garnering compliments from the Guards Polo Club of Windsor Great Park in the UK.
This highly exclusive and to an extent, attention elusive country club and villa resort does not advertise the many amenities on offer to its members and their guests, but we can guarantee that it’s up-market, its clubhouse is as good as it gets when it comes to general hospitality, dining, banqueting, pro-shop, locker room, and getfit facilities.
When not making use of its driving range, members can lounge around a garden swimming pool, play tennis, join their rugby match ups and even enjoy driving around in their carts. Indeed, Dirab is one of those places that cater to those with the finest taste in pasttimes. Nonetheless, every now and then, though at a pricier rate, regular guests would enjoy visiting it for a taste of the good life.
