There are an ever growing number of opportunities to play golf in Oman. One such course is the Muscat Hills Golf & Country Club located near the international airport. Within easy reach of Park Inn by Radisson Muscat this course, routed through the natural wadis (dry riverbed valleys), is as unusual as it is challenging. Despite the dry conditions, Oman’s first grass golf course takes the condition of its turf very seriously having created the Middle East’s first Turf Maintenance Academy as part of the club.
A golf holiday in Oman wouldn’t be complete without playing this dramatic course with its stunning mountain backdrop and unique design features.
Tee off in Oman
Another relatively new golf course in Oman is Almouj Golf at The Wave, Muscat designed by international golf superstar Greg Norman. With 18 holes and breath-taking views of the Sea of Oman, this par 72 championship course provides something for even the most experienced golf addict.
Norman and his design team have created a beautiful course that lets players test their skill against the stunning backdrop of the Hajar Mountains. Almouj Golf also has a restaurant where golfers can rest up after a day on the links. There is also a golf academy, swing studio, driving range and private golf lesson area.

Guests of the Park Inn by Radisson Muscat hotel offers guests a convenient sanctuary from which day trips to all the local courses are easily achieved. The hotel is close to the business district and many of the international embassies in Oman
