Sindalah Island: The Future Of Golf In The Middle East

Sindalah Island: The Future Of Golf In The Middle East

NEOM, the futuristic city project in Saudi Arabia, has announced a partnership with IMG Golf Course Service, a global leader in golf course management, to open a stunning 9-hole beachfront golf course on the luxury island of Sindalah.

Sindalah is one of the islands off the NEOM coastline and will be the first ultra-prime superyachting destination in the Red Sea region. The island will offer a taste of NEOM's vision of creating a new model for sustainable living and a global center for innovation.

The Sindalah Golf Club, designed by renowned golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., will be the first island golf course of its kind in the GCC and will offer an entirely unique golfing experience for all visitors. The 6,474-yeard (5,920 meters) par 70 courses will feature 9 holes and 18 teeing points, as well as a 280-meter driving range and golf practice suites fitted with state-of-the-art ball tracking technology and statistics feedback.

The course will also be CEO certified, meaning it will demonstrate the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility. The course will use recycled water for irrigation, solar power for energy, and native plants for landscaping. The course will also support local communities and wildlife conservation initiatives.

The IMG Golf Course Service team will manage the onsite sports club, which will offer multiple membership options for visitors to enjoy the very best facilities, equipment and service, including a luxurious gym, Olympic-size swimming pool, an indulgent spa, and sports courts. The Sindalah Golf Academy will further complement the facilities with multiple performance studios offering the latest in custom-fitting and golf-learning technology.

Antony Vives, Chief Urban Development and Islands Office at NEOM said: "Sindalah will be the first physical showcase of NEOM to open to the world and will become a new and exotic golfing destination like no other. We are proud to be working with IMG Golf Course Service to bring this premium course from the mind of Robert Trend Jones Jr. to reality at Sindalah".

Russell Hannah, Vice President, IMG Golf Course Services, commented: "We are delighted to partner with NEOM and Sindalah Island and welcome them proudly to our growing portfolio of world-class clubs and resorts across the globe. Their vision for this stunning new destination makes it exactly the sort of project which will benefit from IMG's international experience and resources".

The Sindalah Golf Club is expected to open in Q1 2024 and will be a year-round, exclusive venue, elevating the golfing experience in the Middle East. The club will attract golf enthusiasts from around the world who are looking for a new and exciting challenge in a breathtaking setting.
