First grass course in Al Ain

12.15am 6th August 2007 - Course Development

The Palm Sports Resort Al Ain, formerly known as Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting and Golf Club, is due to open its doors to golfers in the UAE, early September 2007.

The 9-hole golf course, situated within the grounds of the Al Ain Equestrian Club will be the first grass course in Al Ain and promises to be a new centre for golf lovers from September onwards. The club is located near the Al Twam Hospital and easily accessible within 40 minutes from Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

“Al Ain itself has a relatively large number of golfers registered with the UGA, so we should see a healthy amount of people interested in our new facilities”, comments the newly appointed golf operations manager, Michaela Hlouskova. “We are looking forward to welcoming guests to our facilities when we soft open in September this year.”

The clubhouse will have two reception areas, men’s and ladies’ locker rooms, a restaurant, a golfers lounge and sports bar with a golf simulator, golf academy and a fully stocked pro shop.

“We may not be fully operational in the clubhouse by September, but golfers will have a chance to play and test the course, sign up for lessons at the golf academy and register for membership. Our management team and staff will be dedicated to provide an exceptional experience to our members and visitors”, claims Michaela.
