Afternoon visit
Aug 2019 • Family
Yesterday we visited Bisharat golf club with other 2 families, we are not members so we use the facilities according to that. There is a sand play ground which you can find mostly anywhere in Amman nothing special about it. They closed an area and put dome small dogs in it for children to pet them. Poor dogs are terrified due to the small area they've been living and noisey children barking at them, it was awful.
There is a cafe which serves burgers,pizzas vs. We ordered burgers,pizzas and all of them was awful, I'm never planning to go there again.

Amazing and unique
Feb 2017 • Friends
I found this amazing place whilst living in Amman some 20 years ago. It became a retreat from the hustle and bussle of downtown Amman, and a magnet for expats of many nations, a truly ecclectic group. Julia (a magnificent lady) and Dennis (the coolest man on the planet) made everyone so very welcome. Being a non-golfer made no difference as there was always someone in the bar / patio area to shoot the breeze with. Magnificent views and typical middle eastern weather. I returned to Amman some 10 years after my contract ended and as soon as I walked into the bar, I was greeted like a long lost brother. Wonderful place and tremendous hosts. Only negative is that it can be difficult to locate, so make sure you have good directions.

A special place
Apr 2017 • Friends
In a country where the sport is barely off the ground, this course and club has a rich character and local history making it a special place. The place has a real charm and is worth a visit.

Something special
Dec 2016 • Solo
Had a stopover in Amman and I heard about the Bisharat Golf Course. It's a very unique course. With mat to tee off and black/brown greens. If you stay in Amman have a stop at the course, make a game and have a chat with the owner Dennis at the 19th hole.

Golf - desert style
Apr 2016 • Friends
Yep this place is awesome. Don't expect a regular day the links, this is not your typical golf club. We pulled in and saw that the driving range was been mowed by 50+ livestock. Played in late April, spring time, the course was "green" with growth. Tee off at rubber mat into a fairway you le Cody carries with him. I've never heard golfers complaining about grass, but the best approach is a low short punch and hope for a "bisharat" bounce onto the green- err brown. The Browns are compacted oiled sands that are broomed by your caddy. If you get lucky on these lightning quick surface you can use the slopes and witness some bisharat magic as your ball finds the most unlikely route to the hole. Great way to experience the great Amman-Ian outdoors outside of the city. Pleasant host and staff, served beer and food to satisfaction.

Quite, green place to relax very near Amman
Mar 2016 • Friends
My preferred point to escape crowded city and take a walk between hills on grass with plenty wild flowers as wild anemone ,small wild iris and many others. And on the end drink a coffee or tee in beautiful multiterraces restorant,that is center for golf players .
Z only think to be improved is the availability of a small restaurant that can provide visitors with meal.
It is only 10- 15 minutes drive from Amman!

Not much to do
Sep 2014 • Couples
We've attended a few events here at the golf club, but we didn't enjoy it as a golf club. We like greenery around a golf course, here the course was very steep and totally barren.

Unique Golf Experience

Enjoyed my golf experience. Was welcomed by the host Julia and her family. The caddies have an interesting job trying track balls bouncing of rocks off the fairway. Putting took a while to get use to on oiled sand called browns instead of greens.

Purists would run a mile, but it is actually a lot of fun.

The Bisharat Golf Course is well worth a visit. Julia who welcomes you and looks after the place is charming and accommodating. She will arrange a caddy for you - and this is essential if you want to find your way round the first time - and she makes you feel welcome. If you are used to the manicured golf courses of places like Dubai you are likely to be appalled when you first see the fairways and the greens. The course is wild and stony, the greens are actually black and seem to be made of something like oiled sand. The ball may bounce anywhere on the many rocky outcrops and the usual game of golf takes on much more of an element of chance than ever. You carry a small circle of plastic grass with you to hit from and this effects your stroke. However, being out on the rugged open hillsides and enjoying unusually challenging strokes is fun. There are bunkers but no water hazards and you may be unlikely to get many birdies but quite likely to see some birds of prey. Take more balls than usual, and not your best ones! You are sure to lose some.

Yes, golf in Jordan. Well it's sort of like golf.

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.
