Braemar Golf to manage Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club in Oman

Braemar Golf is making inroads in the Middle East. The St. Andrews-based construction and management company recently signed a two-year agreement to manage Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club in Oman.

“We are delighted to bring in the commercial expertise and services of Braemar Golf to aid with the management and development of Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club. They quickly responded to our initial requests during the middle part of 2010 and have assembled a strong management team for us” said Her Highness Sayyida Susan Al Said, Chairperson of Muscat Golf Course Project.

Braemar Golf also recently signed a strategic consultancy agreement with Bahrain International Golf Course Company (BIGCC) the owners of The Royal Golf Club. The Royal Club was the recent venue for the Volvo Golf Champions European Tour event. This continues Braemar Golf’s relationship with BIGCC which began back in 1996.

“We are delighted to continue our relationship with BIGCC who we have worked with over many years now” said Michael Braidwood Operations Director of Braemar Golf who was formerly BIGCC’s General Manager from 1998 – 2010. “Having formerly be involved in managing the golf club in Bahrain I am very proud that the golf club is now owner operated and so established that it no longer needs a full time external management operator.”

At Muscat Hills, Braemar Golf will be responsible for the business performance of the golf club. Muscat Hills Golf and Country Club forms part of the phase 1 development at Muscat Hills which also comprises 145 residential properties that have already been completed. Muscat Hills is situated right in the middle of Muscat’s rapidly growing new central business district. Muscat Hills phase 2 development are about to commence and will include construction of a new clubhouse and golf resort hotel and more residential properties.
