Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa set to tee off at NBO Golf Classic Grand Final for third year

​For the third year in succession, the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final, which will be held at the Almouj Golf at The Wave, Muscat, will partner with Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa ("Shangri-La").

As part of the sponsorship agreement, Shangri-La will provide catering for the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final in the VIP pavilion, which overlooks the Arabian Sea and the course's 18th hole, across the four day tournament, between Wednesday November 4th and Saturday November 7th, 2015. Dignitaries and distinguished guests invited to Almouj Golf at The Wave will be able to experience high-quality Challenge Tour golf action while dinning.

The NBO Golf Classic Grand Final marks the climax to the European Challenge Tour season where the top 45 players on the Road to Oman Rankings will compete for not only the prestigious tournament title, and a prize fund of €375,000, but also one of the coveted spots on next season's European Tour on offer for the top 15 ranked players following the conclusion of play. 

Ahmed Al Musalmi, CEO of the National Bank of Oman, commented: "We are delighted to welcome back Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa as a Supporting Sponsor of the NBO Golf Classic Grand Final for the third year. Last year's tournament was hugely rewarding for everyone involved and is already an established week on Oman's sporting calendar.

"We anticipate that this year's tournament will be even bigger than the inaugural edition and will help to cement Oman's place on the world map of international sports."

Mark Kirk, General Manager, Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa said: "It is with great pleasure Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa is returning to support the tournament for its third consecutive year. We strongly support the goal for developing Oman as a sporting destination, particularly a golfing destination, and there are already a number of courses catering for all abilities which encourage tourists to experience all that the Sultanate has to offer.

"We delight in the knowledge that by partnering with the European Challenge Tour at Almouj Golf we will, once again, be showing our support to promoting the sport to international audiences and look forward to an exciting tournament ahead."
