“Yes, golf in Jordan. Well it's sort of like golf.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

This is golf in name only but it's a different experience and worth playing once. I've played golf on sand scrapes a couple of times before so nothing new there, but first time I've walked around carrying the fairway with me... (you take a little circle of plastic grass with you to hit off)
No indications of where to go from hole to hole but that's probably because most take caddies or are locals (or caddies are 'expected' - got that feeling). Spent ten minutes finding the 3rd tee from 2nd 'green'. Also, because the fairways are a collection of rocks, dirt and scrubby plants I spent a bit of time searching for where my ball ended up after bouncing off yonder.
Plenty of elevation changes around the course and the 4th/13th was an interesting long downhill par 3. Short in length for a golf course and made even more so by the sometimes generous ricochet bounces.

I guess most play here as a novelty (like me) or for the social club atmosphere rather than the golf! Clubhouse area is pleasant enough.

“The only golf course in the country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The greens are called "browns" and the fairways are so dry but playing the whole nine yards over there is a real amusement. If you dare to play hole 3 in one shot you would sometimes win a car. Julia Bisharat is a nice lady that keeps the golf course lively. A very nice terrace is located at the top of the hill and a good beer is always welcome after the play.

“For Golf Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

A 9 hole golf course, the greens are browns but challenging indeed. You go around twice and it becomes an 18 hole golf course. The only golf course in Amman, great food, breathtaking views a fun day out just for lunch even if you do not play golf!!

It is family run and they are very nice indeed!!!
