The Education City Golf Club (ECGC), a landmark project for Qatar and the world of golf, will have a soft opening in October. The club offers a revolutionary and holistic approach to growing the game of golf, with a number of short game formats.
Recently, 10 members from the sales team Discover Qatar (DQ)—the destination management subsidiary arm of Qatar Airways—experienced the ECGC during a three-hour familiarization trip. The team toured the extensive facilities and then experienced golf via a putting clinic and tournament.
ECGC has a state-of-the-art learning and practice facility housed in the Centre of Excellence, a venue designed for golf development. Its course features an innovative TrackMan range, an 18-hole championship golf course, a floodlit 6-hole championship course with seven teeing ground options per hole for quick and multi-generational golf and a floodlit 9-hole par-3 course all designed by two-time major winner Jose Maria Olazabal.
Moreover, the golf courses are serviced by a clubhouse and academy building which will both offer all-day dining options. Surrounding the clubhouse are large gardens where a number of lawn sports will be available.
The club's general manager Michael Braidwood said: “We were delighted to receive the team from Discover Qatar for our first familiarisation trip. Working with Discover Qatar is extremely important to the success of the club as they will promote and co-ordinate a large number of our international visitors to the club."
He further added that seeing is believing that's why they are very keen to get as many tourism stakeholders to the club before their October opening. Mr. Braidwood also noted that Team DQ had a great time and they might see some new golfers emerging from the visit.”
