Golf in the kingdom
I brought my clubs with me while on deployment to Bahrain. There is one course in the country. Well, two, but the other is a sand course. RGC is a Troon facility. It's in pretty good shape for August, considering the climate here. Some lost grass but it'll come back in the fall. The design offers a challenge but not overly so. I really liked the greens, there are lots of undulations and they are paspalum. Really grips the ball for slow rolls, so you have to crush it. Alright I don't want to hear it, just because a green is "fast" doesn't mean it's good. On these greens you have to read the breaks and putt harder than normal, and it really challenges you.
Only complaint was the gear. My buddy had to get clubs, they are free but they were junk. I would expect at least a name brand at a top notch facility like this. Also the carts are thrashed. But, overall it was a great experience and I will definitely play again before I leave. And every time I'm in the kingdom.
