It reopened after 5 years of being closed because the old owner bankrupted in 2009. Two years later, in 2011, there was a first try to reopen by an Iranian businessman, Hussein Sabet, but he failed his try.

This has been a long journey. They have been working, since the opening, during the past year to set up the golf playing surface conditions to get to this point. From here they will keep on working hard to keep up with the level required, according to the market expectations and demands. Compromising them to keep up until they reach the high standard product demanded by all the Golf Agents.

Mainly to get a better speed of play and to integrate all new practice facilities into the golf course.

On top of that, all the green complex was reshaped and renovated. Integrating most of the hills to the green surfaces, providing them with some more movement and interesting breaks to the greens, avoiding some blind greens, installing new drainage system, and a long etc. They took special attention to the reconditioning and building of new bunkers at holes 1, 3, 5, 6, 11, 12, 15 and 18. For beginners and practicing they have improved their practice facilities with a better driving range, putting green and a short game area.
