Braemar Golf’s contract extended at Muscat Hills, Oman

February 25, 2013

Leading golf management company, Braemar Golf, is pleased to announce the extension of their management advisory contract with Muscat Hills Golf Course Project (MGCP) following a successful initial 30 month term.

"We are delight to continue our services with Muscat Hills. We have seen huge progress over the last two and half years at Muscat Hills. We are pleased that the owners are committed to our strategy which has seen great improvements in the product and service delivery whilst maintaining market share in what has become an increasingly competitive market" said Braemar Golf's Operations Director, Michael Braidwood.

Commenting on the appointment, Muscat Golf Course Projects CEO HH Rawi Al Said "we are grateful for the support Braemar Golf has given us over the past 30 months. Before Braemar Golf joined us we were struggling with a number of teething problems with our new facility. Over the last two and half years Braemar Golf has helped us tremendously in developing a very good product, a capable and stable management team and a business that is growing year on year."

This new phase of the agreement will see Braemar Golf continue to advise on the growth of the business, further refine the product and aid MGCP with the design and operating strategy for their new clubhouse facility which is scheduled to break ground later this year.

"We are excited about the future of Muscat Hills and golf in general in Oman. Each year we are seeing more and more interest from overseas tour operators, which is really helping position Muscat Hills as a viable tourist destination. The plan for the new club house and on site Intercontinental Hotel are great and once in place will really help cement Muscat Hills as the golf course of choice in Oman" added Braidwood.

Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club is Oman's first 18 hole championship golf course. Designed by Paul Thomas and opened in 2009 the stunning golf course has been crafted through rocky terrain and has numerous dramatic wadis (dry river beds) running through it.

The wadis give the golf course two challenging par 3 holes which are played directly across them. The course is generous off the tee with wide lush fairways and with a choice of 5 teeing grounds per hole the course sets up for all standard of golfer.

Located just 10 minutes from Oman's International Airport and in the new business district of Seeb, Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club is ideally positioned to look after the inbound tourist and international and local corporate markets.

Surrounded by luxury villas and apartments Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club looks set to be the premier address in Oman.
