Foreword

"In partnership with GEO Foundation – the international non-profit dedicated to golf - we have set out our strategic framework, designed to respect the cultures and landscapes of Saudi Arabia, whilst demonstrating how the right measures can conserve and enhance our unique natural environments, plan responsible and efficient use of our resources, and build new opportunities for health and wellbeing in our communities.

Our hope is that through our policies and practices, we inspire and guide other sectors in the Kingdom and beyond to kick-start enterprises in the green, circular economy. Sharing our passion for environmental transformation will result in credible recognition as a stakeholder of Saudi Arabia’s future.”

Yours Sincerely,

His Excellency Yasir O. Al-Rumayyan

Chairman Saudi Golf Federation

Through the achievement of this vision, golf in Saudi Arabia will:

  • Develop a product that is culturally and socially relevant, respectful of traditions and leaning to the future.
  • Regenerate landscapes and ecosystems with native green infrastructure and creating natural capital.
  • Be at least low carbon, if not carbon neutral.
  • Demonstrate best in class solutions to water resource management.
  • Showcase the best combination of design and technology.
  • Redefine golf in the Middle East and arid climates.
  • Inspire and guide other sectors in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and beyond.
  • Kick start other enterprises in the green and circular economy.

"Golf in Saudi Arabia shall be widely acclaimed for taking a world leading approach to establish the most sustainable environmentally led golf ecosystems possible."
