Bisharat Golf Course
Located off the Queen Alia Airport Road, just west of the Amman National Forest, is the Bisharat Golf Course. It is a nine hole golf course. The staff is exceptionally welcoming and arranges caddies and equipment in no time. This should not be considered a manicured course such as those found in Dubai and the rest of the western world. The course can be described as stony and wild and the greens aren’t entirely made of grass.
A small circle of plastic grass is provided that you carry around to tee off. This is known as a portable fairway. This contributes to the unusually challenging game of golf with elements of change around every corner of the course. The course consists of bunkers, but not water hazards have been worked into the terrain and plenty of elevation changes.
It is slightly challenging to know where to go from one whole to the next so it is recommended to rent a caddy to accompany you through the course. It is said that if you play the hole three in one shot, you would win a car! That’s a challenge not to be taken lightly.
The clubhouse area is pleasant and welcoming after a hot few hours spent in the sun. It is located at the top of a hill and serves chilled alcoholic beverages as well as food. Being the only golf course in Amman, the Bisharat Golf Course attracts locals to also visit the terrain. If they don’t opt for golf they have lunch here overlooking the nine hole course.
