Being held at the Dirab Golf and Country club, the Saudi Arabia edition of the GEC Open is hitting the green turfs with over 120 players

The Dirab Golf & Country club welcomed the players of GEC Open with all the warmth on the 28th of November, marking the beginning of the 5th edition of the GEC Open world tour 2015.

With an amazing 24 degree Celsius the weather and the golf course just played the perfect host for a perfect day. Over 120 players are battling it out for the journey to finale in a heated interesting game.

Nestled amongst the panoramic hills of Dirab( a vast farm located 35 km southeast of Riyadh City) Dirab Golf & Country Club offers the best golf in a totally relaxed and soothing atmosphere. Dirab Golf Course is professionally maintained to competition standards. Renowned for its exceptional year round playing conditions, rolling fairways, large target greens and challenging hazards- 9holes are floodlit enabling play after sundown.

While going closer to several countries, the GEC journey also aspires to take humanity closer to business. In this vision, Dubai Autism Centre, UAE Red Crescent Authority and KISS (Kalinga Institute of Social Sciences) have joined hands by associating with the initiative. Every time a player gets on the golf course, many children and many lives are empowered, nourished and educated. As the GEC flag is hoisted in seven countries, the wish is to build a bridge, bring in the best practices, share success stories and explore the benchmarks and path breaking projects that have been defining these countries and share it with the other counterparts— ECMEA understands it as its true corporate and social responsibility.
