Wigan Football Team Take To The Fairways At Almouj Golf
The English Premier League team Wigan Athletic
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.
