Jebel Sifah drives Oman's golf tourism with 9-hole course

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 exceeded the expectations of players by delivering the highest levels of customer service with the addition of new facilities on the horizon in response to their feedback.

With the golf course having already attracted homeowners, golfers residing in Oman, as well as visitors from the UAE, Bahrain, Germany and the UK the name of the Jebel Sifah Golf Course has reached far during its first months of opening.

Catering to visitors looking for an ideal golf getaway, the recently opened course offers a full range of activities and package deals tailored to a wide variety of golf enthusiasts. Through a smart e-booking service, available on iTunes and Google Play, golfers can choose the Stay and Play experience that offers the entire family accommodation at the Sifawy Boutique Hotel and access to the course throughout the week.

Further experiences include the destination’s Nine & Dine packages, which offer avid golfers the exclusive opportunity to enjoy a round of golf followed by a lunch at the recently launched and widely popular The Bank Beach Club. Additionally, those who prefer the seclusion provided by games in the evening can play at night with a selection of glow-in-the-dark balls.

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 Hajjar 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.”
