Golf Saudi has been presented with a Vision Award at the 2020 World Golf Awards.

Voted for by professionals working within the golf travel and tourism industry, Golf Saudi was rewarded 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 and a continued commitment to establishing Saudi Arabia as an exceptional golfing nation.

This has all been achieved with Golf Saudi simultaneously looking to instil a culture of environmental and ecological innovation throughout all of its ongoing pioneering initiatives.

His Excellency Yasir Al-Rumayyan, chairman of the Saudi Golf Federation and Golf Saudi, 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, 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.”

Chris Frost, Managing Director of the World Golf Awards, said: “I have closely watched over the past few years the accelerated development of Golf Tourism in Saudi Arabia. Golf Saudi’s vision is truly breathtaking 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.”
