The power of the great game of golf will stand as a pillar over time which we believe will become one of the nation’s favourite pastimes and most loved sports

A NEW SAUDI,
A NEW BEGINNING

As the nation demonstrates its position at the heart of the Arabic and Islamic world, it also continues to recognise its role as a global investment powerhouse and how its continued investment in sports can unite our nations stakeholders and by unlocking the universal appeal of the great game of golf, enhance our international relations.

The world of sport provides the most comprehensive opportunity to augment our national endeavour and to diversify our Saudi lifestyle.

THE VISION

Strategic investment, at all levels of the sport will establish a new ecosystem in Saudi Arabia, whereby the game and its socio-economic benefits can flourish.

Residents of Saudi Arabia will enjoy unparalleled access, via traditional and modern means, to embrace the skills required to enjoy participating in the game.

INFRASTRUCTURE

The Saudi Golf Federation is undertaking the most comprehensive development programme the world of golf has ever seen.

To integrate golf in the culture of a modern Saudi, the game must be fully deployed. The underlying pillars of Vision 2030 underpin the development philosophy and culture; inspiring and providing opportunities for all generations, demonstrating the investment stature and diversity for sustainable commercial endeavour and augmenting Saudi’s leadership in the Arabic and Islamic world.

ACADEMIES

Nurturing talent will be a cornerstone of the Saudi Golf Federation (SGF) strategy, identifying and nurturing talent via the provision of the very best, state-of-the-art facilities and insight from the world’s best coaches and governing groups.

The SGF has been central in developing the adoptive years of young players to compete at international standard amateur events. The advancement of elite player development will continue in its significance and be framed by the SGF academy programme.

MASS PARTICIPATION

The SGF recognises the importance of creating and developing modern touch points; at home, at school and in everyday life, to ensure the fundamentals of the great game of golf are ingrained and opportunities are created away from just on-course activities.

Strategic development of urban-based practices that focus on entertainment are under consideration, allowing the general public the opportunity to engage with the game at a purely social level. These consumer touch points will be accessible and build interest and demand for second stage development.

EVENTS

The full scale event agenda is currently under review, with the management carefully considering how to best chart Saudi’s course in the game (and in conjunction with the wider sporting agenda and philosophy).

Whilst an important aspect of modern Saudi lifestyle, an abundance of entertaining events will enrich the lives of many of citizens and inspire generations in fields that interest and excite the most. In the same breath, the network of events is a vehicle to engage national and international organisations; be it rights holders, brands or government linked entities. The universal language, reserved only for the world of sports and none more so than the game of golf, create great opportunities to share the vision of Saudi Arabia with the like-minded.

TOURISM

As the tourism proposition evolves in modern Saudi Arabia, the golf network will seek to unlock interest amongst one of the most lucrative travel demographics.

Golf will afford Saudi Arabia the opportunity to tell its story through the great game and capture the imagination and interest amongst golfers around the world.

A fully integrated development programme will unite stakeholders from the world of hospitality to create one of the most appealing products.
