Oman is fast emerging as one of the leading golf holiday destinations, especially for golfers who live in a part of the world with winter conditions. The country offers a stunning selection of championship golf courses and they are incredible. Each of the three golf courses not only provide high quality playing conditions but tremendous views of the surrounding area and excellent facilities.
Beginning with Al Mouj Golf Club, this is one of the leading Oman golf courses and is situated to the west of Muscat. Developed by the Government of the Sultanate of Oman and Majid Al Futtaim Properties, Al Mouj Golf Club hosted the inaugural NBO Open, known as the Oman Open, in February 2018 and this saw the golf course elevated to the European Tour. The course is designed by the legendary Greg Norman and situated along a two kilometre stretch of the Indian Ocean.
Moving on and in close proximity to Muscat, we come to the Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club. This was the first grassed 18 hole golf course to be constructed in the Sultanate of Oman and is designed by Paul Thomas of David Thomas and Associates. Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club is one of the best Oman golf courses because not only is the 18-hole championship course in pristine condition throughout the year but the views are spectacular. On one side of the course, you have the Indian Ocean and on the other the Al Hajar Mountains.
For those who want a unique golfing experience in Oman, the nine-hole golf course at Jebel Sifah is a must play. The course is designed by Harradine and can be played as an 18-hole par 72 course, with a choice of five tee positions on each hole. The breath-taking views mean it is difficult to keep focused only on the golf course and Jebel Sifah is a tremendous venue for a round of golf in Oman. For those who want to take their game to the next level, there are PGA professional golfers on hand to help players of all abilities.
