European Tour event to be staged in Saudi Arabia for 

first time in 2019

The European Tour will continue to expand the boundaries of global golf next year when it tales the professional game to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for the first time.

His Royal Majesty, Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, used his visit to London this week to confirm the full-field event that will play a key part in the European Tour’s early-season Desert Swing in 2019.

The tournament, the first in a three-year partnership, will take place from January 31 to February 3, 2019, and will be staged at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club in King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC). Designed by London-based European Golf Design, the course plays to a par of 72 and stretches along the Red Sea coastline.

The venue, which aside from the Championship golf course boasts a state-of-the-art clubhouse, world class practice facilities and other stunning residential and recreational facilities, has already been used as a training base for the Saudi national golf team.
