Swan Golf Designs has been appointed to design what will be only the second golf course in Lebanon.

Having previously worked to renovate Lebanon’s sole golf course in the early 2000s SGD has been chosen to design the new course which will form part of a residential and commercial development just outside Beirut. Working alongside Khatib & Alami, one of the Middle-East’s largest multinational engineering firms, SGD will initially provide advice on the environmental impact and site layout as part of the permission process before moving on to the detailed golf course design.

The proposed site is located in the hills to the west of Beirut with views across the capital city to the Mediterranean beyond. The golf course will be set within the indigenous forest with holes sweeping through the valleys, making the most of the changes in elevation that the spectacular location affords.
