Nestling in the foothills south of the village of Al Lansab, Jabel Park Golf Club was first established in 1987. Initially the course was opened by the Royal Air Force Oman’s Physical Training Instructors, based at the PE School close to the RAFO airbase, but due to land development in Ghalla, it had to move to it’s present location and re-opened in July 1993.
The course is carved out of the Jabel, using the natural features of the terrain, which provide some spectacular scenery and very daunting holes. Course management is essential here, as some of the “lies” can be a true test of one’s nerve! There are rocky outcrops and an abundance of wildlife, ranging from a variety of birds and vultures, goats, the odd camel and even the endangered Arabian Red fox!
Although Jabel Park is classed as a desert course, it has graded and rolled gravel fairways with oil-covered browns. It is a par 72 course with 10 very distinctive holes and 18 separate tee boxes, which measure 6175 yards for men and 5209 yards for ladies.
As Jabel Park Golf Club is a military “member-based” club, all non-military prospective members’ membership is subject to approval by the committee.
