The Oman Golf Committee have signed a preferred supplier agreement with the local Omani sports retailer Golf World to become the Oman Golf Committee’s preferred supplier for golfing events and to equip the Oman National Team. The agreement comes as part of Committees drive to establish strong relationships that support the growing popularity of the sport in the Sultanate.
The Vice Chairman of the Oman Golf Committee, Ahmed Al Jhdhamy announced, “2017 is an exciting year for golf in Oman and this is one of many partnerships we plan to enter into. With the support of Golf World and our recently appointed National Team Manager Steven Troup, we can be assured that our National Team is fully equipped and prepared for upcoming various regional and international tournaments we participate in.”
Commenting on the agreement, Golf World’s general manager, Leon Sassen, stated “We’re excited about this new relationship between Golf World and the Oman Golf Committee, as we both have the shared vision to grow the game of golf in Oman. I have been in the Golf industry in Oman for almost 9 years now and I feel this is a great move forward and I am very positive about the future ahead for Golf in Oman”. First opened in 2011 in Shatti Qurum, Golf World is a local Omani owned company and the sultanate’s first dedicated retail outlet for golfing enthusiasts. Golf World has since moved to The Ghala Golf Club where it operates the Pro Shop.
