The intention behind the decision to hold the Oman Golf Trophy in Japan is to use golf to foster mutual exchange.
Golf in Oman started in the early 1970s. Two simple sand green courses have been established to meet demand among expatriates in the oil and gas industry and local and international defense personnel.
In half a century, golf in Oman has developed greatly and there are now five (soon to be six) world-class lush courses. And in just 50 years, Oman has emerged as a unique and breathtaking golf tourism destination.

The inaugural tournament in Italy saw 900 amateur golfers compete on seven prestigious courses in Northern Italy, with 14 elite players competing for the title in Muscat, with one male and one winner being crowned. With the success of the first edition increasing Oman’s status as a leading sports destination, His Majesty Sultan Haitham bin Tariq decided to expand the second edition to seven countries, with Japan as an additional country.

Japan is Oman’s major trading partner and imports a variety of Omani products, including oil and gas, minerals, and marine products. And Oman imports machinery, electronic equipment, cars, and other high-tech products from Japan, and the two countries have good trade relations.
The bilateral relationship between Oman and Japan is a good example of successful international cooperation based on trust, mutual benefit and a shared orientation. Government-to-government,
