Description: International golfing legend Greg Norman is responsible for the...
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.

The Al Mouj Golf course is designed by Greg Norman, and is a very good course. Very often the wind is in play. Staff is very friendly, nice food in a little to small temporary clubhouse. Worth playing, but if possible find a member to play with, as I believe the green fee is quite steep. Was among the first... More

My wife and I have played this course several times now and the experience just keeps getting better and better. As the course matures and the course husbandry improves with greater knowledge about the course itself things are super! Links courses are not everyone's favourite but Almouj is a fantastic course to play. We have played throughout the UAE, Thailand,... More

The golf course is superb, it lies between the airport and the sea, in fact most of the holes run alongside the sea. It is of course relatively flat but has a difficulty rating of 7 / 10 in my view as there are often hazards between tee and fairway. The rough is very rough with thick grasses and bushes... More

This Greg Norman designed course is a links style course running along the Arabian Sea near the airport. Although fairly new, the course has matured quickly.The standard is extremely high, but we warned it is not an easy course to master, especially when the wind blows off the sea, which is most days !
