Ayla Golf Academy and Clubhouse

Three man-made blue lagoons with a total area of 750000 m², and comprising a constellation of 17 white sand beaches are spread over the Ayla community.

Offering world-class amenities in a glorious picture-perfect setting, Golf Hills is home to Jordan’s first 18-hole golf course. The district offers a contemporary Ayla Golf Club and Academy, extraordinary guest accommodations, as well as beautifully designed residential apartments, townhouses and villas.


As part of Ayla’s mission to help create a prosperous community that embraces its natural assets, the company strives to develop the golf course to become one of the most environmentally friendly in the world. At the district, every detail conspires to provide its residents and guests with a spectacular experience. With over 12km² of rolling greens, the lush landscape features three green pockets with panoramic views of the area, paved courtyards reminiscent of a traditional Arabic medina, playgrounds, sundecks, and swimming pools – including an infinity pool overlooking the golf course.

The Avenue district is Ayla’s interpretation of downtown living on the coast of the Red Sea.
This pedestrian-friendly boulevard boasts designer brand local and international names in fashion and lifestyle.

Our walk-friendly roads will guide you through the cosmopolitan Avenue district, taking you from the modern residences and apartments to the vast shopping and dining areas, which lead into historic Aqaba.

Offering the perfect blend of land and sea – from luxurious waterfront residences, to a world-class marina, to the Marina Village’s unique boutiques and restaurants – the district’s pulse of the Ayla community. Encompassing modern luxury and historic beauty, the Marina District comprises 17,000 m² of commercial space, three hotels with approximately 700 rooms, as well as 582 residential apartments and private villas.


The district is also home to Aqaba’s largest marina with almost 300 berths, fitting boats up to 40m long with a draft up to 4m, and providing exceptional facilities and services that adhere to international standards. With its pedestrian friendly roads, yearlong activities catering to adults and children, biking lanes, world-class amenities, and a bustling nightlife, the district offers its residents and visitors the opportunity to get lost in the magnificent coastal allure of the Red Sea.

Dazzling entertainment venues, organic designs, and culture, unite at Ayla’s Creek District – creating an urban-spirited community bustling with extraordinary energy. The district is home to an exquisite beach club as well as a collection of contemporary riverfront residences that combine the perks of urban and coastal living. The district’s waterfront includes 420 townhouses and 72 apartments.

Ayla Golf Academy and Clubhouse

26 Jun 2019

That Field of Dreams line – ‘If you build it, they will come’ – might as well have been coined with Jordan’s Ayla Oasis in mind. Sprawling over 4.3 million sq m on the Red Sea’s Aqaba coastline, the first phase of the ambitious mixed-use development (which includes 17 km of new waterfront) is already complete. And for now, at least, its centrepiece is unquestionably Oppenheim Architects’ Ayla Golf Academy and Clubhouse.


Curving across the horizon like a granular sine wave, the dun-hued complex – created out of local stone, clay, glass and metal – was inspired by the backdrop of dune-scape and desert mountains, whilst Corten steel panels perforated to echo a mashrabiya screen keep desert heat and sun at bay.


The academy, itself, is a sequence of swooping concrete shells and sits in front of the driving range and the 18-hole Greg Norman-designed golf-course, looking for all the world like a slinky offspring of Zaha Hadid and Jørn Utzon.


Of course, if the heat gets too much, there are indoor swing and putting studios, though you’ll probably find us at the all-day bar and restaurant tucking into head chef Raed Abu Zeineh’s salmon steak, and risotto of tiger prawns.
