New for 2018 on the European Tour is the NBO Oman Open. The National Bank of Oman has signed a three year agreement with the European Tour as title sponsor.
For five years previous, the National Bank of Oman had sponsored a Challenge Tour event.
The tournament will be played at Al Mouj Golf, Muscat, Oman. It is a Greg Norman designed course
The National Bank of Oman was the country’s first local bank. It offers both conventional and Islamic financial services. The latter is important, as Sharia law prohibits interest paid on loans.
Oman is located on the southeastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula. The sultanate has a population of four and a half million. It is an absolute monarchy.
The Oman Open is one of four European Tour events held in the nations of the Persian Gulf: the Abu Dhabi Golf Championship, Dubai Desert Classic, Qatar Masters, and now, the NBO Oman Open.
