Did the fairways and greens at the golf course have grass? Or was it all just rock and sand?

I never played golf there and haven't had much on the web page about it. Was just wondering what it was like and maybe ask if anyone has some good pictures of the course?

I was there around 73' (cant remember exactly) and played the course. The "greens" were raked sand and the rest of the course was like the rest of Ethiopia, just dirt. The cattle roamed thru the course and Hilli's horse stables were there also.

I remember in '71 that there was one small area that was sort of green...probably for putting, and could have been green carpet for all I know, lol.
