The Italian leg of the Oman Golf Trophy was played on seven of the most prestigious courses in Italy between September and November, culminating in this week’s finale in Muscat, with 14 of the Italian leg qualifying winners competing head-to-head for the title. The tournament reached its conclusion after an action-packed week for the players who were treated to a tourism and investment awareness programme to complement their golf interests while in Oman.

Al Mouj Golf, which played host to some of the best golfers in the world recently in the International Series Oman event, proved a tough test for Oman’s guests from Italy. On March 5, Al Mouj Golf welcomed a friendly practice round which included Omani businesspeople and club members, as well as Omani sports icons.

“It’s been a great experience to be a part of the Oman Golf Trophy, and have the chance to play such a fantastic golf course,” said Morati. “The location is wonderful — on the coastline and next to the mountains. The people in Oman have been amazing. I am very honoured to be here and to experience all the destination has to offer.”

Bardazzi added: “What a golf course. It was a great challenge and the people of Oman have been so welcoming. Hopefully this can be the start of a great partnership between Italy and Oman and encourage others to come and experience the beauty of the Sultanate that we have witnessed this week.”
