New 9-hole championship course drives Oman’s golf tourism growth

Driving Oman’s growth as a golf tourism getaway, Jebel Sifah’s new 9-hole course has been attracting large numbers of local and regional golfers hitting the greens of Muscat’s latest golfing destination. The development is the latest by Muriya to attract visitors from around the region, with the Harradine-designed masterpiece offering homeowners unrivalled golf green views and a unique golfing experience for pro golfers and beginners alike.
Leveraging the international expertise of management experts Troon International, the par 36 course has already attracted homeowners, golfers residing in Oman, as well as visitors from the UAE, Bahrain, Germany and the UK.
Ahmed Dabbous, CEO of Muriya, said, “As an Integrated Tourism Complex (ITC), Jebel Sifah is a long-term investment that has transformed real estate in Oman and allowed new tourism-related projects to thrive. The success of our golf course serves as an example of how our approach is continuing to satisfy growing numbers of visitors to Oman with enriching golfing experiences. Its landmark combination of the surrounding topography between the Al Hajar Mountains and the Arabian Sea and expertly designed greens, is also making our golf-front freehold properties a popular attraction among Omanis and Expat buyers. Adding to that we are continually enhancing our golf offerings to ensure that the overall experience positively contributes to Oman’s golf tourism industry.”
