The Arab State of Oman has long been a leading vacation destination for people around the world but it is quickly developing into one of the best countries for a golf holiday. Oman is just an 8 hour flight away from the United Kingdom, and a one hour flight from the popular golfing city of Dubai. You could even combine the two to make one fantastic golf holiday.
Located on the south-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia, Oman is the oldest independent Arab state. Surrounded by the Arabian Sea on the southeast and the Gulf of Oman on the northeast, the golf courses of Oman boast tremendous views of the ocean, and some feature holes that play along the spectacular coastline. The capital city of Oman is Muscat, and this makes a great base to enjoy a fantastic Oman golf holiday.
With one of the hottest climates in the world, Oman golf holidays have become popular during the European winter months and many people choose to book a golf holiday between October and March. January is the month with most rain in Oman but with very little rainfall in general, much of which falls in the mountainous regions of the state, you can enjoy a round of golf at any time of year.
Now regarded as the fastest growing tourist destinations in the Middle East, the choice of resorts, hotels and golf courses in Oman is fantastic. You will find a superb selection of championship golf courses, including Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club, Al Mouj Golf at The Wave, and Ghala Golf Club. In addition, five star resorts are available where you will find a wide range of high quality facilities including luxurious accommodation, shopping, swimming pools, gyms, live entertainment, and fine dining.
