An excellent clubhouse with great food and ambiance. The course is immaculately maintained, and is a fair challenge. An added attraction are the herds of gazelle which live on the course-beautiful.

The capacity: The course is a typical 18 hole course. For an event that would be 144 golfers max. They have a restaurant that could support an event of that size.
