The newest golf course in the Middle East, Al Zorah Golf Club designed by the Nicklaus Design group, have unveiled new imagery and opened its doors to membership enquiries ahead of the course’s official opening scheduled for December 2015.
Managed by Troon Golf, the par-72 course in Ajman is conveniently located close to Dubai and its popular landmarks. Al Zorah Golf Club also becomes the first new championship venue in the UAE for nearly six years, and will initially be opening its membership to a limited number of golfers.
Promising to be a truly welcoming facility, Al Zorah Golf Club will certainly take the golfer’s breath away with its 18-hole championship layout set amongst a naturally preserved environment of native sandy areas, lakes and one million square metres of mangroves.
12 kilometers of waterfront
As Ajman’s first golf course and Nicklaus Design’s first solo project in the Middle East, Al Zorah Golf Club will feature pristinely manicured fairways and greens alongside an abundance of natural wildlife, 12 kilometers of waterfront and a tidal system that alters the dynamics of the course on an hourly basis.
“We’re very excited to open our memberships and look forward to welcoming our guests to what is a golfing paradise set amidst a stunning natural environment,” commented Philip Henderson, General Manager for Al Zorah Golf Club.
“The work the Nicklaus Design team has done on maintaining the natural beauty of the land and making it part of the course’s personality has been remarkable,” continued Henderson. “The end result is a world-class golf course set in an extremely refined and eco-friendly environment.“
Significantly, the Al Zorah Golf Club site has been designated a Free Hold Zone by the Government of Ajman, meaning the land is not only legal to build on, but also to live on too. There are 42 Al Zorah Golf Villas as part of an initial development, offering a more relaxed way of living amongst natural landscapes and wildlife.
