Harradine Golf has received approval for construction of a nine-hole course in Tunis, the capital city of Tunisia.
The course, part of the Tunis Sports City development, has been in planning for over 10 years.
“We are extremely happy to proceed with this project, which has been on our drawing boards for such a long time and is finally coming to fruition,” said Peter Harradine.
One of the conditions in the new building permits was to increase the area for the golf course relative to real estate. Harradine said that the new design allocates the real estate in such a manner that it will be largely unobtrusive and as safe as possible.
“The land is rather flat, but this golf course will be an enjoyable and interesting 3,170-yard par-35 with the provision of multiple tees, three artificial lakes and the preservation of many existing trees,” said Harradine.
