Qatar International Golf Club (QIGC) has reached a new milestone in its development as the first green was grassed today, signifying the project’s first complete hole of the 18-hole championship course.

To mark the occasion, two-time US Masters champion and the golf course’s designer, José María Olazábal, was on-site to plant the first green. Mr Olazábal was joined by the golf course project team as well as students and teachers from schools that are taking part in the golf club’s Pearl Coaching Programme. Launched in 2015, the Pearl Coaching Programme aims to make golf more accessible to young people.
