Drive for health, entertainment
The Aramco Saudi Ladies International golf tournament opens Thursday.
The Aramco Saudi Ladies International golf tournament will be held between Nov. 12-15 at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club Golf Course in Jiddah. The tournament will be the first-ever ladies golf tournament held within the borders of Saudi Arabia.
The four-day event will be presented by the Public Investment Fund, and hosted by the Saudi Golf Federation, with Aramco as a Title Partner for the event. By supporting the tournament, Aramco is aligning itself with the Kingdom’s Saudi Vision 2030, with its ambitious goals of promoting culture and entertainment for the Saudi public, diversifying the economy, as well as to encouraging participation in healthy lifestyles. The Aramco Saudi Ladies International also highlights the major strides the Kingdom has made in providing new opportunities to women, including the participation of women in sports.
More than 100 professional players, including headline international players from the women’s game, will be competing for the first time in Saudi Arabia over the four-day, 72-hole tournament, challenging for a record $1 million prize fund.
