Club officials have confirmed the completion of a series of upgrades and refurbishments to the Al Hamra Golf Club
Al Hamra Golf Club is celebrating another successful European Challenge Tour event with the announcement of the completion of several enhancements to the clubhouse and surrounding area.
As part of the improvements the Pro shop has witnessed major refurbishments, a members and VIP lounge adjacent to the stunning 18th hole has been introduced, as well as a complete upgrade within the locker rooms including fit out and furnishings. Event spaces have also been introduced which are complemented by new landscaping surrounding the clubhouse.
Benoy Kurien, CEO of Al Hamra, said: “The upgrades and enhancements mark an exciting new chapter for Al Hamra Golf Club as we add to the quality golf, recreational and hospitality facilities we already have in place. Our mission, both on and off the golf course, is to become the most respected and admired real estate developer and services provider in the Northern Emirates, something we will achieve by continually developing and improving our assets to world-class standards.”
A new viewing and swimming deck on Al Hamra Bay and an upgrade to the F&B outlets, which include Pesto Ristorante and The Bay Sports Bar, are adding to the club’s recreational facilities away from the course.
“We celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Al Hamra Golf Club last year and since opening in 2007 we’ve invested significantly to be able to showcase one of the most celebrated sporting venues in Ras Al Khaimah. We’re confident the investments made will have a lasting impact on our market leading position and will be a key driver when attracting events and increasing membership to the golf course,” added Kurien.
The 18-hole course is centered around Al Hamra Bay with a series of four interconnected open water lagoons that form a challenging and stunningly landscaped par 72 championship course, with five varying tee options on each hole.
Frederic Savoye, President Hospitality Business, Al Hamra, said: “Maintaining our position as a five-star destination across every vertical of our business is imperative to our ongoing success. From the Waldorf Astoria and Ritz Carlton to Al Hamra Marina, to the newly enhanced clubhouse, luxury international standards are at the cornerstone of everything we do. The timely completion of the club house also further endorses our decision to appoint Troon Management and we now look forward to another exciting golf season
