  • 50 hectares of cereal crop were regenerated into new, diverse native habitats
  • Over 12,000m 3 of rootzone material were sourced from on site
  • Established partnerships with local universities and community groups
  • Created an accessible golf course and training centre suitable for golfers of all levels 

Throughout my time working with this project and my visits to the site I have seen the site transform into an excellent golf course which has benefited the natural environment seeing an increase in biodiversity in the area. The regeneration of land here is a great example of how golf can be a positive and beneficial use of land.

Summary

As a Sir Nick Faldo signature course in an emerging golf nation, Rumanza really stands out as the world-class, championship course that it is, and is more than capable of inspiring future generations of Pakistani golfers. Working closely with the government and the DHA Multan this 18-hole course has been created in keeping with the natural character and charm of the region while also being able to host professional tour level events. 

Located around 15km North of Central Multan the par 72 course is nestled within 444 acres of land. It has seen the regeneration of former agricultural land into a functional landscaspe with a diverse range of natural and native ecosystems. This has given a great biodiversity boost to the region while allowing a number of fauna species to return to the area. 

The club has truly created a hub for the future of golf in Pakistan while giving back to the local community. The creation of a nationally leading Centre of Excellence secures the progression of the sport in the country and the forging of relationships with local universities secures the natural land. 

 


This might be the biggest transformation (and we anticipate biodiversity boost) we’ve seen on a new golf development. A former monoculture of industrial scale, flat arable agricultural fields – the native sands beneath have been used to shape a dramatic golf course with the highest standards of practice grounds and entry level facilities. The course is wrapped with native landscape grown on at the client’s nursery, and local building materials and techniques have been used to create pathways, steps and restore original farming structures [Deras] around the golf course property. The course continues to improve and we expect to see it go from strength to strength.

"[Players] can expect a world-class golf course with facilities and hospitality to match. They can also expect to see something quite unique in many respects and a golf course very much rooted in its location on account of the strong local identity it has."
