This eighteen-hole golf course, designed by Peter Harradine, meanders around four inter-connected open water lagoons merging seamless with the water of the Arabian Gulf. As many traditional links course do, the front nine measuring 3,578 yards makes its way out and away from the Clubhouse, whilst the back nine measuring 3,747 yards returns home around the lagoon to the Clubhouse. The result is a stunning Par 72 Championship Golf course measuring 7,325 yards at full length designed with five varying tee options on each hole.
Originally planned to be built on the salt flats bordering the water edge, some five million cubic meters of sand combined with expert shaping have come together to create gentle elevation changes as the terrain moves around the lagoons rising and falling from plus one to plus eight metres.
Al Hamra Golf Club’s Par 72 Championship course lends itself perfectly to all levels of golfers, providing the fledgling novice or the most accomplished of players with an enjoyable and interesting golfing challenge.
With the regions short day light hours Al Hamra Golf Club uses the latest zero pollution floodlights to offer golfers the ability to play into the night. Using a combination of the front nine & back nine championship course a composite 9 hole course is created, providing the perfect option for the business person after work or for the true golf enthusiast who just cant get enough. Either way golf under the stars should be a must try experience for all.
