A Santuary in the Desert..(Dirab Golf Course)

The winds muted in hot summer days in Riyadh. Imagine a temperature reaching almost 50C at noon and 37C at night!

You can almost feel the gruesome heat permeating your body. Unlike in other parts of Saudi Arabia (Al-Khobar and Jeddah) where the humidity is high, Riyadh’s high temperature seems to be fine except for those who work at Site.

At times like this, a good haven for recreation is best….

Dirab Recreation and Swimming Pool is the place..

At Dirab Golf Club, the practice facility is not just a place to stop by and hit a few balls before a round. It is a destination that holds as many challenges and as much fun. The anchor of the practice area is a wide driving range approximately 27,000 sq meters, excluding 1,600 sq meter practice tee with all-grass hitting stations that can accommodate 30 golfers simultaneously and plenty of room for long hitters to practice their 300 yard drives !.
12 synthetic mat stations with automated ball dispensers are available with sun shade and lighted during the dark, enabling the golfers to stay cool during their practice.
It is only a modest course, but it is the place to play when visiting Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Built in 1991 under the stewardship and vision of the owners Khaled and Mohammed Abunayyan, Dirab Golf and Recreation Center is renowned for its exceptional year-round playing conditions, carved rolling fairways. large target greens and challenging hazards from a sprawling farm land that was once home to a flourishing vegetable plantation of the Abunayyan's.

Dirab Golf Course blends fine design, meticulously manicured greens, unmatched challenge with its tree-lined fairways and accommodating staff that have made this course a true favorite requested by golfers year after year.

A large swimming pool is located inside the Dirab Golf Course surrounded by shrubs and just at the slope of a rocky hill, adding to the privacy of this family recreation. It's the perfect way to cool off after a week of stressful office works.
Furnished villas are available inside the Dirab Recreation Center, which can be use for social gathering, such as barbeque, small parties etc.
