THE ROAD TO OMAN
NBO first brought the Challenge Tour to Muscat in 2013. After two successful and inspiring tournaments, the tournament established itself further by becoming the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final. The final tournament of the Challenge Tour season held annually at Al Mouj Golf, The Wave – Muscat, a stunning venue in Oman’s bustling capital.
At the all-important NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, the 45 highest-ranked players will battle it out for the top 15 spots in the final Road to Oman Rankings, earning them graduation to The European Tour – thereby following in the footsteps of such golfing luminaries as Thomas Bjørn, Martin Kaymer and Henrik Stenson.
The Road to Oman will take in 28 tournaments in 22 different countries, mixing historic tournaments such as the Barclays Kenya Open and the Rolex Trophy with newer events in developing golfing nations such as Slovakia, Turkey and China.
Furthermore, a new bonus pool of €60,000 will be available for those players who finish in the top three of the Road to Oman, meaning the chase for European Tour graduation will be given an exciting new dimension.
The winner of the Rankings will not only be awarded the honour of being crowned Challenge Tour Road to Oman Number One – receiving an engraved Rolex watch – but he will also receive the lion’s share of the bonus pool.
