Finally Open - All 18 Up And Running At Al Hamra Golf Course
01 Apr 08
Having come to the end of a particularly cold winter Phase 2 – holes 8 to 16 of Al Hamra Golf Club have finally opened. January and February were relatively cold months in RAK and the growth of the newly sprigged Paspallum grass slowed down considerably. However as the mercury rose so did the grass leaf and the result was that the club opened the final holes 10, 11 and 12 for the Emirates recently staged Ladies Open. Chris White commented “the golfers response to the back nine opening has been phenominal – players really are bluffed into a false sense of security on the first 7 holes until they reached the treacherous combination of 8,9,10,11 and 12 – three of these holes are beautifully shaped around one of the open lagoons and require both length and accuracy. The Club is trying to market Al Hamra as a ‘Golfing memory’ and we believe these new holes will enhance that”.
