Almouj Golf representatives networked with over 200 golf industry tour buyers and media from more than 30 international markets, positioning Almouj Golf as one of the top picks in the minds of golf tourism trade experts.

 "With Oman experiencing a surge of golf holiday bookings from around the world, Almouj Golf's first participation in the event highlighted the Sultanate's distinct tourism-related propositions, while boosting its international ranking as an up-and-coming golfing destination," said Simon Duffield, General Manager of Almouj Golf.

 He added, "Golf tourism is currently valued at USD 20 billion globally and Asia in particular is experiencing unprecedented growth rates, therefore, the three-day convention was a vital platform to introduce Oman as a must-visit golfing destination. In addition, we explored long-term productive business-to-business deals within key international markets, which will be instrumental in increasing Almouj Golf's exposure and attracting more golfers."

 Home to the National Bank of Oman Golf Classic Grand Final, European Challenge Tour, among other competitions and activities, Almouj Golf offers a variety of memorable golfing experiences for local and visitor golfers. Since opening in 2012, Almouj Golf has enjoyed a series of acknowledgments being voted 4th Best Golf Course in the Middle East by Golf Digest ME, and attained TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence in the same year, while maintaining its position as one of the Top 5 Outdoor Activities in Muscat.
