Gulf International Bank (GIB) is the golf partner of the inaugural Saudi International powered by SBIA. The tournament marks the first time the European Tour is being held in the Kingdom, where the third leg of the “Middle East Swing” is being played.

The Saudi International powered by SBIA takes place from Jan. 31 until Feb. 3 at Royal Greens Golf & Country Club in King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC). The event has attracted some of the world’s finest golfers. This includes four of the world’s top five golfers, eight players from last year’s Ryder Cup and no fewer than seven Majors champions.

Abdulaziz A. Al-Helaissi, CEO of GIB, said: “We are delighted to support the hosting of this world-class golfing championship in the Kingdom for the very first time. GIB is deeply committed to participating in initiatives that bring to life the goals and objectives of the Kingdoms’ Vision 2030 and among those are the development of the Kingdom’s sporting, entertainment and tourism industries in the bid for even further growth and diversification.”

We congratulate the vision and efforts of the Saudi Golf Federation for bringing the European Tour to the Kingdom and for their success in firmly putting Saudi Arabia on the international golfing stage. We also welcome members of the tour to the Kingdom and wish them a successful tournament.”
