Golf Saudi recently scooped a Vision Award during The World Golf Awards’ COVID-modified annual ceremony in Dubai.
The awards united market leaders from the golfing world from over 40 nations across Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, North America and Oceania, and celebrated the best courses and destinations spanning the industry.
Golf Saudi’s new Vision Award bolsters its position as one of the world’s most dynamic new golf markets. The organisation was awarded for its outstanding strategic contribution to the game.
Chairman, Saudi Golf Federation and Golf Saudi, HE Yasir O. Al-Rumayyan said: “To be recognised by the World Golf Awards is a great honour and provides a valuable boost to the progress of the game in Saudi Arabia. Thanks to the support of His Royal Highness Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Crown Prince, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defence and in line with Vision 2030, we have made great efforts to ensure our strategy for developing the sport is as progressive as it is inclusive.
“Whilst we are still in the formative stages of our national golf plans, progress has been considerable, giving us great confidence that our direction and commitment to sustainability will stand us in the best stead for the years to come,” he added.
The World Golf Awards recognised Golf Saudi for its efforts in facilitating uptake and participation in golf through the delivery of world-class facilities, operational excellence and the implementation of industry best practice, as well as a continued commitment to establishing Saudi Arabia as an exceptional golfing nation.
Managing director, World Golf Awards, Chris Frost commented: “I have closely watched over the past few years the accelerated development of Golf Tourism in Saudi Arabia, Golf Saudi’s vision is truly breath taking and quickly coming to fruition. The next decade is incredibly exciting for Golf Tourism in the Kingdom and I believe in the near future the industry will be looking to the region as a market leader in golf development and sustainability.”
