Twelve holes overlooking the Red Sea

Spanning nearly 350 acres and designed by Sanford Golf Design, the championship course – all 18 holes are due to be operational by autumn after the opening of the first nine holes in spring – presents a very different prospect and will feature six tee positions including junior tees giving a distance of 4,600 yards. Salt-tolerant Seashore Paspalum grass is being used on fairways with Sea Dwarf Paspalum grass on the greens, to ensure good playing conditions year-round. Three artificial lakes linked by cascading falls and a host of
bunkers will contrast mountains and the deep blue waters of the Red Sea. Twelve of the 18 holes will overlook the Red Sea.

The Madinat Makadi Golf Resort opened in November 2007 with practice and training facilities including an 80-bay dogleg driving range, golf academy and three complete practice holes – a par-3, par-4 and a par-5. The clubhouse will be integrated with a 70-room, five-star boutique hotel and will feature an haute cuisine restaurant and a bar alongside a swimming pool
