Attraction details
Owner description: International golfing legend Greg Norman is responsible for the magnificent design of the 18 hole, par 72 championship golf course at Almouj Golf.With 36 golf projects currently in progress worldwide, The Shark, as he is affectionately known, visited the site back in 2006 and could instantly see in his mind's eye the course that he wanted to create. After carefully studying the topography and weather conditions of the site, and using his years of experience playing top golf courses around the globe, Greg and his associates from Greg Norman Design produced an inspiring plan.The new Greg Norman course offers truly unique characters with each hole offering something different from the last. He and his design team were mindful of maintaining the panorama of the ocean and the spectacular vista of the Hajar Mountains. On a clear day you almost feel as if you can touch the mountains.

“Beautiful Driving Range and a nice bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

This Greg Norman designed Golf Course enjoys one of the best driving ranges in Muscat. The view is spectacular and the facility is definitely top notch.
The 19th hole is quite nice and cozy with excellent outdoor seating. The service if very good , good drinks gnu but the food is average.

“hot experience of Almouj Golf course”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Being in Muscat for the week end I decided to play an 18 hole at the Almouj Golf. The course is located on the sea side and offers nice views. The staff at the golf course is efficient although not very friendly. You don't really feel welcome. The club is also a bit "cold". This being said, excellent quality of the course, premises, golf cars. Nothing to complain. As far as the course itself, it is not an easy one and better to be straight because, if not, you easily loose your balls... even on the short rough as the balls literaly disappear... So either you are a good player and stay on the fairway (not large) all shots... or that increases your overall cost ! i stopped at the 11 as it was really too hot for me. But worth the visit

Dear Thierry,

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to review Almouj Golf.

It is unusual to hear about the service which you were met with here at Almouj Golf. I can assure you we take great pride in offering not only professional but warm and courteous service.

Playing 18 holes during the summers here is draining. You can consider reaching 11 holes a strong achievement under the circumstances.

We hope you will find the time to return to Oman and to Almouj Golf, during the cooler months, to experience the full 18 holes with the warmth of service that is the norm here at Almouj Golf.

“Used to be my home course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

A quite challeging course built next to the ocean by Greg Norman. Very friendly and helpsome staff, and by far one of the best courses I have played. Have a small but good restaurant, where you can relax before or after the game, or just enjoy.

“Place to watch in in future”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2014

May be after few years, this place is going to be the nucleus of attraction in Muscat. So many hotels are coming.....wow.
The Shakespeare resataurant and shang thai is place to watch by now. We had dinner while we stayed in Eastin Residences, Muscat.
