We are delighted to announce that we shall have two additional
holes available for play on the 2nd May 2012 bringing
the 10th back into play and the opening of the finishing
hole the 18th . The back nine holes are now
complete and directional signs will be in place to get from the
18th Hole back to the Academy.
The front holes consisting currently of Holes 2,3,4,5,6,7and 8
remain unchanged with the the remaining holes 1 and 9 growing
in very well. We hope to have the completed 18 holes for you to
play within the coming weeks.
While we have been charging a 9 hole green fee since we opened
the 14 holes, now with the additional two holes we shall now charge
a 20% discount on the 18 hole green fee with a regular 9 hole green
fee back in place.
Under the USGA Handicap guidelines an 18 hole round is
considered eligible for entry once a minimum of 13 holes have been
played, a 9 hole round is counted after 7 holes have been
completed. Any holes missing are to be scored as net pars for the purpose
of handicap adjustments. When entering your scores for the existing
course please follow this procedure to ensure that your handicap
stays updated, the stroke indexes can be found on the newly rated
scorecard, a copy of which I will leave beside the handicap
As part of the process of moving towards 18 holes the golf
course has been re rated by the Emirates Golf Federation, this may
mean that your course handicaps have changed. Please check the
terminal or the handicap list in the clubhouse before you next
If you are in any doubt as to how to proceed please feel free to
leave your completed scorecards with your name and OGC membership
number at Reception and we will enter your scores for you.
