Designed under US PGA international standards by Denis Griffiths, at that time president of the world-renowned American Society of Golf Course Architects, opened in December 1996. The design adapts to everyday member use up to a very tough challenge for major international tournaments featuring the finest players in the world. The 7,157-yard course, from the professional tees, was tested during the 1997 Asian Honda Classic won by Tiger Woods.
The high-tech computer designed greens make for many interesting pin placements. The entire course features immaculate conditions, a neo-classic design and alkali variety from hole to hole, along with an abundance of water and sand hazards. The course is a constant test of one’s golfing proficiency.
Off the course, you’ll find the friendliest staff of professionals in the Kingdom, committed to making your golf experience a memorable one.
So, whether you play from the tees for 7,157 yards, or prefer a more leisurely round at 6,105 yards, or somewhere in between…we have…
