Golf Saudi launches ‘power of the game' podcast
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 02 - 03 - 2021

Listeners interested in the rapid development of golf in Saudi Arabia can now get the inside track to its trailblazing plans via Golf Saudi's brand-new podcast — Power of the Game. The series has been launched to explore the creation of new golf courses, efforts to bring new players into the game and shed light on Saudi Arabia's sustainability in golf mission, and much more, as it seeks to establish the world's most integrated golfing ecosystem.
The podcast series is hosted by Dubai Eye's golf obsessive Robbie Greenfield, who will regularly invite guests to discuss their involvement in golf development in the Kingdom. The first five episodes have today been released as a ‘box-set" and include discussions with Ladies European Tour CEO, Alex Armas, 2018 Ryder Cup Captain, Thomas Bjorn and an exclusive feature with Jack Nicklaus, who describes the designs for his new golf course at Qiddiya.
The podcast series underlines Golf Saudi's ambition and its connectivity to the national Vision 2030 social-economic development programme and will emphasise Saudi Arabia's role in establishing new global benchmarks across its six pillars: Access and Infrastructure, Events, National Team and Academies, Sustainability, Mass Participation and Tourism.
These will deliver key metrics in the next decade for the country, including having 13,000 – 27,000 registered golfers in the Kingdom and ensuring over one million Saudi nationals have actively tried golf.
Commenting on the new podcast for the country, Majed Al Sorour, CEO of Golf Saudi and The Saudi Golf Federation, said: "At Golf Saudi, we have a number of over-arching aspirations for golf in the Kingdom and we wanted to give our new listeners the chance to hear more about these.
"We have laid out major plans for the socio-economic growth and development of the golf in the Kingdom, through tourism, commerce, investment and the entertainment sectors and are working with many amazing organizations and people to deliver these.
"These are hugely exciting times and through the ‘Power of the Game' podcast series we hope the stories of the work we are doing and the passion shown by these individuals shines through and gives our listeners a better view than ever of the scale of our ambition."
Listeners will be able to tune into each episode via major podcast providers: Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Stitcher. The first five episodes are now also available to view as Vodcasts at GolfSaudi.com/podcast, kicking off with Ladies European Tour CEO, Alex Armas, who discusses the newly-launched Aramco Team Series, the impact of the pandemic on women's sport, and the Ladies European Tour's work with Golf Saudi. — SG
