About the Oman Golf Association
Established by the Ministry of Sport in 2009 the Oman Golf Committee was awarded the status of an Association in 2020.
The Association exists to increase awareness, participation, promotion and appreciation of golf to the domestic and international markets and further to this to ensure that golf is used to promote the general interests of the Sultanate both locally and overseas.
The Oman Golf Association is a non-profit making organisation and any funding raised through Government support or generous sponsorship is directly invested into achieving our goal to grow the game in Oman in a sustainable way and in doing so to support and contribute to Oman Vision 2040.
