swapped the wintery and cold football pitch for the picturesque Almouj Golf fairways at The Wave, Muscat during their recent visit to the Sultanate.

Eight members of the squad played the first nine holes of the 18 hole, par 72 championship golf course as they took a break from their one week training camp.

Inspired by Oman and designed by Greg Norman, the 7,342 yard course at Almouj Golf boasts the first-of-its-kind Academy run by three PGA qualified instructors and features a state-of-the-art swing studio, a fully-equipped Pro Shop as well as a restaurant and flood-lit driving range with private teaching bays. All 18 holes are expected to open to the public during the second quarter of this year. Since its debut in December 2011, Almouj Golf has become highly regarded as a 'must-experience' landmark in the Sultanate, setting new standards in the golf and hospitality industry.
