Saudi Arabia’s NEOM announces massive golf course on Sindalah

NEOM, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia - NEOM has today announced a partnership with industry leader IMG Golf Course Services to open a groundbreaking 9-hole beachfront golf course on the luxury island, Sindalah.

IMG Golf Course Services has been appointed to provide pre-opening, marketing and management services to the Golf Club at Sindalah, which will be a year-round, exclusive venue, elevating the golfing experience in the Middle East.

The first island golf course of its kind in the GCC, Sindalah will offer an entirely unique golfing experience for all visitors, from amateurs and young players to experienced enthusiasts and golfing professionals. Designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., the 6,474-yard (5,920 meter) par 70 golf course will boast 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 is also set to be GEO certified, meaning it will demonstrate the highest standards of environmental and social responsibility.

The IMG Golf Course Services team will manage the onsite sports club, which will offer multiple membership options for visitors to enjoy the very best facilities, equipment and services, 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.

Perfectly positioned as a glamorous gateway to the Red Sea, Sindalah will redefine the luxury island experience and welcome in a new dimension of exquisite, curated travel. Sindalah is one of a group of islands off the NEOM coastline and will be the Red Sea region’s first ultra-prime superyachting destination. Opening in Q1 2024, the island will be the first iteration of NEOM to be unveiled to the world and will offer a taste of NEOM’s vision that will come to life in the coming years with THE LINE, Oxagon and Trojena.

“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 Services to bring this premium course from the mind of Robert Trent Jones Jr to reality at Sindalah,” Antoni Vives, Chief Urban Development and Islands Officer at NEOM said.
“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,” Russell Hannah, Vice President of IMG Golf Course Services added.

Aside from its golf course, Sindalah will offer exceptional dining experiences, an innovative retail selection, and a deluxe marina capable of hosting yachts up to 50 meters in length.

The island will also feature a beach club curated by global entertainment icons, a Marine Activities Centre for aquatic adventures, and three luxury hotels, including a Four Seasons Resort and Saudi Arabia’s inaugural Marriott International Autograph Collection Hotels property.

Sustainability lies at the core of Sindalah’s development, with its design inspired by the captivating coral reefs and waterscapes of the Red Sea, overseen by Italy’s Luca Dini Design & Architecture.
