Norman's Wave course nearly ready

Greg Norman, renowned course designer and double major champion, has pronounced The Wave course in Muscat 'one of the finest golf courses I have ever produced.'

Norman spent most of his recent visit examining each of the 18 holes with his GWSE design team and said he couldn’t be more pleased with the progress that had been made and that the course was getting close to completion.

“We’re looking forward to the opening,” said Norman. “Being only 15 minutes from Oman International Airport and Muscat City Centre, The Wave could not be more conveniently positioned and with its spectacular setting alongside the ocean with the Hajeer Mountains in the background it has all the advantages.

“We have created a magnificent course worthy of hosting a prestigious world-class tournament, perhaps a European Tour event, in the near future,” he added, explaining that the management were committed to encouraging new golfers to take up the game and providing opportunities for youngsters and beginners to start learning to play golf at The Wave Academy.

“I always design a course from the beginning with the end in mind and I am proud of the magnificent golf course we are close to completing here.

“I believe Oman has an exciting future as a golf tourism destination and I am pleased to be playing a part in the Sultanate’s golfing future.”
