Founded in 1971, Ghala Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Oman. Starting out as a modest 9-hole, sand course, it has since developed into a fully-grassed, 18-hole course with a popular members-only clubhouse and practice facilities. Set snugly into a valley, surrounded by the rugged Al-Hajar mountains, it is unparalleled in its uniquely Omani setting. With its narrow fairways, the newly landscape course is a challenge for all skill levels.
Located in the heart of Muscat, Ghala Golf Club is well-known for its friendly and social members who create an enjoyable and welcoming environment for everyone. The clubs members are the most diverse of all the clubs in Oman, with the largest number of Omani members, many of whom have been playing since the early 70’s. The recently renovated, members-only clubhouse provides panoramic views of the 9th, 15th and 18th holes and is the ideal place to relax with some drinks, good food and better company. Ghala has continued to be the only club in Oman that offers free playing facilities to all junior golfers, 18 years and under.
