Recognition for Norman’s Oman Links Layout

POSTED ON June 1, 2019 @ 2:05 pm

The Greg Norman Golf Course Design (GNGCD) Al Mouj Golf has cemented its place among the finest golf courses in the Middle East.

Host venue to the European Tour’s Oman Open, Al Mouj Golf placed second in National Club Golfer’s Top 25 Golf Courses in the Middle East rankings, a United Kingdom publication.

The links venue received glowing acclaim at the 2019 Oman Open from players and golf fans alike for its spectacular design, which sweeps along the Indian Ocean and affords breath-taking views of Muscat and the Hajar Mountains.

The ranking reaffirms the glowing testimonies articulated by the European Tour players during February’s tournament, as well as regular TripAdvisor reviews from visitors to the course and further showcases Oman’s potential to continue growing as a golfing destination.

Al Mouj Golf has also received significant praise for its host of sustainable and community friendly practices, which have been instrumental in bringing a plethora of wildlife and bird species to the area. The Muscat venue has also raised over US$100,000 for Autism-related charities and set up a range of community golf programmes designed to increase the reach of golf in Oman.

“These rankings support that Al Mouj is one of the best golf courses in the Middle East,” said Al Mouj Muscat CEO Nasser bin Masoud Al Sheibani. “We are delighted and honoured to have been placed second in these rankings and will continue to work to develop awareness for our fantastic offering, both on and off the course.”

Oman is building a reputation as one of the world’s most exciting new golf destinations. In addition to the Sultanate’s leading golf course, visitors can experience Al Mouj Muscat, a world-class Integrated Tourism Complex comprised of luxury residential properties, hotels, retail and dining facilities at The Walk, and the world-class Al Mouj Marina.

From this destination, visitors will discover some of the most captivating attractions in the Middle East, including the Daymaniyat Islands, a protected nature reserve home to an abundance of coral, turtles, whalesharks and other sea life only 30 minutes away by boat from Al Mouj Marina and Muscat, the country’s capital.
