18-Hole Championship Course
The course was designed by golfing legend and double major winner José María Olazábal. Olazábal has purposely led the first few holes of the golf course to an ancient wadi wall, allowing its charm and beauty to set the tone for your whole round. “Along several holes on both the front and back nine, we continue the reoccurring riverbed theme feature – which, on occasion, comes strategically into play”, Olazábal says. The course length totals 7306 yards, with the longest hole measuring 593 yards from the Championship tees.
6-Hole Championship Course
Mirroring the design of the 18-hole Championship Course meticulously maintained, this 6-hole course offers a true Championship experience in a shorter format. The course is a unique offering that offers a first-class golf experience for today’s time-restricted golfers. The 6-hole course consists of one Par 5, Two Par 3's and three Par 4's. The full length of the course is 2136 yards from the championship tees. There are seven tee box locations to suit a range of abilities from professional to children.
