Golf


For golf professionals and enthusiasts, there are very few destinations in the Middle East that offer the prestigious facilities and serene surroundings that Ayla has to offer.

Sitting over 120 hectares of lush landscapes and sensational waterfront views, the golf coursesinclude an 18-hole par-72 championship course, a nine-hole par-three practice course, maintenance facility, and Golf Academy. The 18-hole course, designed by the legendary Greg Norman, is the largest in the Levant region and one of the finest in the Middle East. Created from the lagoon’s excavation material, and with the grass carefully selected and nurtured to stay evergreen year-round, the golf courses have been designed to follow the natural terrain in the area and incorporate the native landscape of Aqaba.

Water forms an integral part of the facility and moves throughout the course – changing in presentation as it transitions from open water bodies to waterfalls.

Ayla Golf Club

Vibrant, modern, scenic – and most of all, welcoming – the Golf Club speaks of Ayla’s vision to deliver memorable experiences in glorious seaside settings.

A relaxation haven for residents and guests, the clubhouse’s smooth, organic architecture mimics the beauty of the surrounding green hills.
