The training allowed young players to experience golf with several of their friends, and introduced them to the rules and nature of golf under the supervision of club coaches.

Ayla also devoted a special, extensive training session for children with Down Syndrome, in addition to holding a program at the Rise-Ropes amusement park, where they had a day of fun and activity.

The Executive Director of Ayla Oasis for development, Sahel Doudin, said that the trainings were the first of their kind to be organized and targeted at a new category of children and young people.

The integrated program is aimed at promoting and developing golf, the statement said.

He added that the training program included group lectures explaining the rules of golf, which had been supervised by the Ayla Club technical team with the participation of club members.

He said that Ayla has strengthened its professional technical and training personnel at the Ayla Golf Academy recently with South African coach Jason Vermeulen, who holds a professional certificate from the PGA Golf Players Association with many years of experience in a selection of international courses and academies.

In addition to a competitive competition, Ayla said that it continues to pursue the development of golf at the national level. 

This is being done in cooperation with relevant institutions to spread it to a generation of talented Jordanian youth and to support participation in international, regional, and local activities.
