KAEC signs deal for $22.6mn golf course
Citiscape Company will build 18-hole championship course in Al Murooj
King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC) has signed a contract with Citiscape Company for the construction of Royal Greens, an 18-hole championship golf course in Al Murooj.
The $22.6mn (SR85mn) project has already broken ground in anticipation of a December 2015 soft opening.
"The new golf course offers new and unique opportunities for both amateur and accomplished golfers, all in an atmosphere of fun and relaxation," said Fahd Al-Rasheed, KAEC Group CEO and MD.
Royal Greens encompasses an area of 800,000m2, with a length of play of 6,295m, and offers four tee options per hole to provide an appropriately challenging and fun experience for golfers at all skill-levels.
In addition to a driving range, the facility will feature a teaching academy, a short game area and putting, chipping and bunker practice greens as well as a 9,000m2 clubhouse.
The championship course was designed by European Golf Design, a joint venture design company involving the PGA European Tour and IMG.
