At Omans Premier Golf Course and the second best golf course in the middle east, Al Mouj Golf Course offers golfers the chance to partake in another sport, birds watching…

This outstanding Greg Norman designed championship golf course has some outstanding landscapes which are home to some of the most beautiful and lesser spotted birds in Muscat and the wider region.

There are so many different kinds of birds that the well known bird watchers Jens & Hanne Eriksen have recently published “The Birds at Al Mouj Golf,” a book which documents the various visiting and resident birds species and the conservation initiatives which have made it possible for these birds to make Al Mouj their home.

Al Mouj Golf Course was awarded the 2019 IAGTO Sustainability Award for Community value, recognising the sustainable practices such as increasing natural habitats on the course, which have been instrumental in growing the plethora of wildlife to the area.

This is yet another accolade for Oman, which has a growing reputation as one of the worlds most exciting new golfing destinations.

In addition to championship golf at Al Mouj, Ghala Golf Club & Muscat Hills, Oman offers the most diverse natural tourism product in the Middle East. Visitors can experience the solitude of the Al Hajar Mountains staying at Alila Hotel Jebal Akhdar, explore a skyscraper free cultural capital while staying at The Chedi in Muscat or take a trip from Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah to the Daymaniyat Islands, a protected nature reserve that is home to abundant coral, turtles and wale sharks.
