La Vie Unveiled
Oman, Muscat (29 March, 2023) – La Vie, a leading real estate project in Oman, has been officially unveiled by OMINVEST subsidiary ORIS. ‘La Vie’, which translates to ‘The Life’ in French, was announced during OMINVEST’s 40th Anniversary celebrations earlier this month.
The first phase of the project is the reopening of the golf club inside Muscat Hills, named ‘La Vie Club’. The club will be managed by Troon Golf and recently allowed preview play of its desert style 18-hole championship course. Investment has been made by ORIS in a new Club Car golf cart fleet, golf course machinery along with a new clubhouse that is due to open in the coming months.
Commenting on the reopening, La Vie Club Operations Manager Freddie Rexstrew stated, “We are very excited to re-establish the club as one of the premier golf facilities within the region serving golfers, the community and growing the game of golf in Oman. We will be delivering the Troon Experience and are focused on being a fun and family friendly club.”
La Vie Club already boasts the first TopTracer Range in the country, the #1 range technology in the world, with game modules suited for all ages and ability levels. Additionally, a community calendar has been created including FootGolf and cycling around the course.
In the future, the La Vie project will boast residential, commercial and tourism buildings including an 80-room boutique hotel. Touching on the project’s objective, Nasser Rashid Al Shibli, Chief Real Estate Officer at OMINVEST, said, “Through this project, OMINVEST aims to support the Sultanate’s efforts in enhancing the role of tourism and sports sector in the diversification of the country’s economy. LA VIE will be a valuable addition to the sector’s infrastructure, attracting top brands in tourism and sports from around the world to operate its various facilities. It will also provide several job opportunities for Omani nationals, which aligns with the objectives of Oman Vision 2040. As an enabling body, OMINVEST is committed to realizing this vision in a way that meets everyone’s aspirations.”
Troon International’s Senior Vice-President, DJ Flanders, remarked “Troon is delighted to reopen the course and look forward to bringing the Troon Golf standards to La Vie and the city of Muscat. Towards the end of this year, golfers will experience superior guest service, the finest playing surfaces and outstanding amenities. The new clubhouse, a summer of cultural practices with the new machinery, will enhance La Vie Club and make the club a focal point of not only the community but also of Muscat. We would like to extend our thanks and congratulations to our ownership OMINVEST and look forward to playing a central part of this exciting project.”
