Designed by renowned Swiss Golf Course Architect Peter Harradine the golf course is shaped around a large open lagoon with four sub lagoons all inter- connected. The front nine measuring 3,559 yards plays ‘Out’ away from the clubhouse, whilst the back nine measuring 3,708 yards returns back ‘In’ around the lagoon. The result is a 7,267yard Par 72 Championship Golf Course. Originally planned to be built on the flat salt flats bordering the water's edge - some 5 million cubic meters of sand and expert shaping has created an undulating golf course where levels rise and fall from plus one to plus eight meters above sea level. In keeping with tradition and style of links golf, the course features humps, hollows and pot bunkers unique to golf in this region. In addition, Al Hamra Golf Club features a nine-hole Par 3 Academy course with holes ranging from 60 yards to 110 yards and features a saltwater lake designed to test even the novice golfers nerve. The 350-yard driving range offers practice either from a large grass hitting area or from the designated Astroturf mats. To complement this fine practice area are putting greens, chipping areas and bunker/pitching areas. With the latest zero pollution floodlights on nine holes of the Championship course, all of the Academy course and the driving range and practice facilities golfers can enjoy this ultimate night time golf experience.
We used to live in the United Arab Emirates and actually lived in one of the houses overlooking the 12-tee in Al Hamra. The course design is pretty good and the clubhouse, food, service and environment is excellent … a notch down on Dubai, but that’s is its charm.
If you do visit, take a visit to the Belgium Beer Cafe and stay for the night in the Hilton or the Waldorf Astoria if your budget allows. It’s a perfect place to take your foot off the gas a little.
