Al Hamra Golf Course is the first taste of “Links Style” golf in the Middle East. This eighteen-hole golf course designed by Peter Harradine is built along the shores and rolling waves of the Arabian Gulf. The course meanders around a large open sea water lagoon with four interconnected sub lagoons all being used as integral parts of the development.
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 meters.
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 courses, the 3,578 yard front nine makes its way out and away from the club house, whilst the 3,747 yard back nine returns home around the lagoon to the clubhouse. The result is a stunning Par 72 Championship Golf course measuring 7,325yards at full length, but with five varying tee options it provides a fun and enjoyable test of golf for the seasoned professional or fledgling enthusiast.
18th is the signature hole at Al Hamra Golf Club
This intimidating par 5 is not long in length but is a slicers nightmare with the lagoon bordering the entire hole down the right. The large three tiered green which surrounded by bunkers will be welcomed sight once the lagoon, wins and fairway bunkers have been challenged.
Al Hamra Golf Club and Resorts also has a par 3 Academy course.
