I’ve never been to the Golf Course in Beirut but I tried two Mini-Golf courses in Kaslik and Mansourieh. The problem with Beirut’s Golf Course is that few people know about it and it’s far, so hopefully by setting up another course in Roumieh, more Lebanese will start playing Golf. I would personally go give it a try.

PS: This is great news for Roumieh prisoners as well.

Plans to build a new course in the hills of Roumieh, 18km east of Beirut, are currently under negotiation. The Lebanese architectural and engineering firm Khatib & Alami is partnering with British golf architects Swan Golf Designs (SGD) with an aim to build an 18-hole course that will, in the words of a press release, offer “views of the capital city to the Mediterranean beyond” and “be set within the indigenous forest with holes sweeping through the valleys, making the most out of the changes in elevation that the spectacular location affords.” It will constitute part of a wider development also comprising residential real estate and a hotel.
