As part of the improvements, Al Hamra Golf Club has witnessed major refurbishments — a members and VIP lounge adjacent to the stunning 18th hole 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 landscape surrounding the clubhouse. A new viewing and swimming deck on Al Hamra Bay and an upgrade of the F&B outlets, including Pesto Ristorante and The Bay Sports Bar, are adding to the club’s recreational facilities away from the course.

Benoy Kurien, CEO, 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 worldclass standards. We celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Al Hamra Golf Club last year and since its 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.”

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 The RitzCarlton 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 further endorses our decision to appoint Troon Management and we now look forward to another exciting golf season.”
