Jordan’s top sports stars will be trying out a sport that is completely new to most of them when the Jordan Golf Federation (JGF) hosts its ‘Live Golf’ festival this weekend.
The event will be held at the state-of-the-art Ayla Golf Resort from March 22-24 and will feature the likes of Olympic gold medalist, Ahmad Abu Ghaush, and his Coach, Faris Al Assaf.
Football legends Ra'fat Ali and Hassoneh Al Sheikh are included alongside Basketball superstars Ayman Idais and Fadel Al Najjar.
Olympic boxer Hussein Ishiash, Kickboxing champion Odai Abu Hassweh and more big names from the worlds of male and female sport are also expected to join.
Hani Al Abdullat, JGF President, pointed out the importance of holding this festival in raising the profile of the sport of golf.
“We wanted to recognise the extraordinary achievements of our sportsmen and women whilst promoting the sport to the Jordan population,” he said.
“We hope this festival will become an annual event, and raise awareness of the opportunities to play golf.
There will be a number of activities held alongside the golf competition with the onus placed on the fund side of the competition, and sport in general.
