Ammon News - The Jordan Golf Federation and Ayla Oasis Development Company have completed all preparations for the 31st edition of the 2022 Jordan Open Golf Championship, which will take place from October 20th to the 22nd at Ayla golf club.

The championship will bring together players from 14 countries: Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Qatar, Lebanon, Sudan, Morocco, Bulgaria, Serbia, Sweden, Azerbaijan, Tunisia, Bahrain, Slovenia, and Jordan.

This competition is part of the annual calendar of events implemented by the Ayla Oasis Development Company in cooperation with the Aqaba Special Economic Zone Authority.

Ayla’s Managing Director Sahl Dudin said "organizing such an event with high-level global presence and attention proves that we have overcome COVID-19 repercussions and moved to bigger horizons of tourism and sports, which helps Jordanian athletes, as Ayla continues to support the national sport of golf."

Dudin saw the tournament's organization as a global testament to Ayla's tireless efforts in adopting the best international standards, professionalism, and excellent performance that characterize its work, all of which contribute to promoting tourism and sports development of the Aqaba Special Economic Zone, which in turn, benefits this Jordanian sport.

President of the Golf Federation Nidal Al Majali, said "the Jordan Open Golf Championship, in its 31st edition, is the result of joint efforts and cooperation between the Jordan Golf Federation and Ayla Oasis Development Company, and several other cooperations including the Aqaba Special Economic Zone, the Aqaba Development Cooperation and the Jordan Tourism Board, which aims to enhance the diversity of sports participation and provide an opportunity for sports enthusiasts to follow different tournaments, especially in the vibrant Ayla project. This consolidates Aqaba’s position as a global tourist sports destination with the presence of the Ayla golf course, which is considered one of the best internationally and is distinguished by its observance of environmental controls in an open atmosphere."

Throughout the tournament, the participants will participate in the "Caddies Program" developed by Ayla for the local community as part of its social responsibility strategy, providing the various facilities and services players need during the competition.

Jordan Golf Open Championship 2022 brings together dozens of media professionals in this sport to broadcast the tournament's competition for three days, strengthening Ayla's position as one of the world's most diverse urban communities and promoting the Aqaba region as a unique tourist destination and its ability to host major events.

Jordan will be represented in the event by ten players from the youth and junior categories, as fierce competition is expected due to the presence of international players, which will benefit all participants, especially the Jordanian team.

Ayla offers an integrated system of world-class golf facilities, including an 18-hole (par 72) championship course designed by the renowned international designer Greg Norman, which blends in with the natural terrain of the Aqaba coast and the landscapes formed by the combination of sand and water.

In addition to the golf course, Ayla also provides access to a specialized golf club, which includes a golf academy, providing training and education supplies for this sport with a 9-hole course.
