Ayla Golf Club is located in Aqaba, Jordan, a seaside city considered a playground for the Middle East’s rich and famous. Set between Aqaba’s captivating mountain landscape and the Red Sea, this one of a kind eco-friendly golf club is Jordan’s first 18-hole championship golf course and 9-hole academy.

Designed by the legendary golf course designer Greg Norman, Ayla Golf Club’s rolling green fairways measures 7,152 yards with five teeing grounds per hole. The fully floodlit golf academy course measures 1,185 yards with two teeing grounds per hole.

The dramatic clubhouse design of Ayla Golf Club is an architectural masterpiece imagined by the U.S. and Switzerland-based Oppenheim Architectural design firm, globally recognized for socially and environmentally conscious architecture. The building takes inspiration from the sweeping red sand dunes and towering sandstone arches of the Jordanian desert. The innovative and distinct architecture also pays homage to the region’s ancient Bedouin tribes’ nomadic heritage.
