A world-class course set amidst a beautiful naturally-preserved environment of striking mangroves and sheer tranquility – that’s the special proposition that’s been magically created by the famed Nicklaus Design group and which awaits golfers making the short trip from Dubai and other U.A.E. regions to play Ajman’s first ever golf course.
The spectacular par-72 Al Zorah Golf Club offers a truly sensational design with pristinely manicured fairways and greens, however it is the way the Nicklaus Design team has protected the natural environment whilst creating the layout that really catches the eye. In total, one million square metres of mangroves characterize the Al Zorah Golf Club and underline that notion of embracing rather than intruding the natural layout of the land. A plethora of native sandy areas, an abundance of wildlife and 12 km of waterfront add to that sense of rich beauty and biodiversity. Vast coastal areas with a constantly-changing tidal system also present a unique challenge for players, altering the look and feel of the course on an hourly basis.
The emirate of Ajman is situated on the Arabian Gulf and boasts a 16-kilometre coastline. Al Zorah is located at the intersection of two main access alignments that have no equivalent anywhere else in the UAE. The first is along the coast to the south and the second is the new landscaped parkway, which offers direct access to the site from Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road. Al Zorah is only a 25-minute drive from Dubai International Airport and 20 minutes from Sharjah International Airport.
