The Wave, Muscat's AlMouj Golf Course opened last week
Golfers from around the world will be even more interested in taking flights to Oman following the opening of the AlMouj Golf Course at The Wave, Muscat.
Famous Australian professional golfer Greg Norman designed the golf course, which welcomed its first visitors last week.
The site, which currently features nine holes, will be expanded to 18 holes by April, according to officials.
St John Kelliher, general manager of AlMouj Golf, told Times of Oman: "I believe that we have a competitive advantage in golf compared to other Gulf countries. Oman is backed with facilities and people to support the hosting of international golf tournaments.
"We are well on the way to establishing the AlMouj Golf course as a top golfing destination in the Gulf with its unique features. The site next to the airport has a backdrop of magnificent mountain view and a walk way to the beach."
Tourists planning to head to the new golf course, which is part of Muscat's $3bn (£191bn) integrated tourism project The Wave, should make sure they have taken out comprehensive
sports travel insurance cover.
Mr Kelliher said: "Owners of the properties at the Wave enjoy the unique experience of being next to a world class golf course. We will soon have floodlights so that members can play in the evening once the course has been expanded to 18-hole."
