AMMAN — Jordan’s Golf Open Championship will kick off by the end of October with the participation of local, regional and international players at the Ayla Golf Club in Aqaba, according to the organiser.

The championship is organised by the Ayla Oasis Development Company in partnership with the Jordan Golf Federation.

The tournament is receiving global attention as the primary golf tournament in Jordan, with golf enthusiasts preparing to participate in this event. This comes in accordance with the government’s announcement of the third and final phase of opening commercial sectors (safe summer), which came into action in early September 2021.

Sahl Dudin, Ayla’s managing director, stressed the eagerness of Ayla to host this major sporting event by working in accordance with approved international practices with a high quality of performance to ensure a successful tournament. Delegation participants are ensured a comfortable stay throughout the tournament period.

 “We are pleased with the on going partnership with the Jordan Golf Federation, as we have a long history of cooperation and combined efforts in serving the Jordanian athletic journey progress,” Dudin said.  

“We are fully prepared to host the Jordan Open Golf Tournament, and we will launch a special sporting events agenda that will run through 2022.”

The Ayla Golf Club and Ayla began to develop a working plan and other necessary arrangements to host this grand event for the best possible outcomes, particularly those related to technical and administrative requirements including the smallest details for the success of the tournament.

In this context, the Head Golf Professional at Ayla Golf Club, the South African Golf Pro Jason Vermeulen formed several special committees to direct the tournament in accordance with the progress of golf in recent years. Preparations are underway for matches and main training courses as well as providing logistics services to ensure the comfort of participants.

The tournament is expected to witness strong competition due to the fact that it was approved as an international tournament where players can gain world ranking points. This will encourage participants to earn more points in order to advance their positions.

Ayla offers an integrated golf system with a prestigious international rating, including an 18-hole golf course with a rate of 72 strokes designed by the famous international designer Greg Norman, in tune with Ayla’s unique beach and landscape environment, and a specialised academy that provides the necessary training and education amenities with a nine-hole flood lit course.

Ayla has a distinguished record of hosting major sporting events such as the Jordan Mixed Open, as well as, the Arab Golf Tournament and the MENA Tours Journey to Jordan, both of which attract the best professionals in the game around the world.

Ayla continues to support Jordan Golf Federation and the Jordan Olympic Committee efforts to promote and spread golf locally by providing the necessary infrastructure and including Jordan as a major international sports hub, which promotes tourism to Aqaba and the Aqaba Special Economic Zone at the national level.
