Al Zorah Golf Club, the Middle East’s newest championship golf course, is inaugurated by Ajman ruler
Al Zorah Golf Club, the Middle East’s newest championship golf course, has been inaugurated by Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Ruler of Ajman.
The Nicklaus Design, 18-hole, championship golf course, operated and managed by US-based Troon Golf, is expected to be a major attraction as it is weaved into Al Zorah’s larger residential, hospitality, lifestyle and leisure community spread over 5.4 million square metres.
Al Zorah is a partnership between the Government of Ajman and Solidere International.
Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, chairman, Al Zorah Development Company, said: “Today, Ajman has been put on the world’s golfing map, as one of the most challenging-for-professionals yet fun-for-amateurs golf course as we will offer a superior experience, not just from a sporting perspective but also from an aesthetic and leisure viewpoint.
“The golf course is just one of the many experiences we are offering at Al Zorah. From today, players from around the region, and the world, can make the most of this remarkable course, which is unique for its setting and integration into a bustling seaside community.”
Visitors will also soon be able to use the first of four marinas, followed by the Golf Villas, and the five-star Oberoi Al Zorah beach resort in 2016.
The construction of Golf Villas, all overlooking the golf course, is nearing completion; homes will be ready for residents to move in by mid-2016.
When complete, Al Zorah will be a mixed-use residential, commercial and lifestyle development along 12km of waterfront, and 1.6km of sandy beaches, in addition to the golf club.
Al Zorah Golf Club is one of Al Zorah’s many natural entities and is connected via parks, public spaces, and shaded paths and promenades.For all the latest sports news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
