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. 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.
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. The Wee Monty Par 3 course features state-of-the-art floodlights on every hole. 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.
