Atlas Turf Arabia Transforms Diriyah Golf Scene with Platinum TE Paspalum Turfgrass

Riyadh’s first championship golf course is set to receive a major boost with the introduction of Atlas Turf Arabia’s Platinum TE Paspalum turfgrass, a high-endurance and environmentally friendly solution.

This collaboration marks a significant milestone in the joint venture between Atlas Turf International and Golf Saudi, contributing to the ongoing development of the Diriyah Gate Development Authority’s (DGDA) ambitious golf facilities.

Diriyah, a UNESCO World Heritage site with immense historical and cultural importance, is undergoing a meticulous restoration to maintain its legacy while evolving into a premier global destination.

As part of this transformation, the new golf facility at Wadi Safar will offer a 27-hole championship course, practice areas, an academy, and a pitch-and-putt setup, catering to golfers of all ages and skill levels.

The use of Platinum TE Paspalum across tee-to-green ensures durability, salt-tolerance, and a rich dark-green aesthetic while meeting all global golf construction standards.

Atlas Turf Arabia’s commitment to quality is evident in its International Turfgrass Genetic Assurance Program (ITGAP) certification, which guarantees adherence to rigorous protocols in turfgrass cultivation.

John Holmes, President of Atlas Turf International and Co-founder of Atlas Turf Arabia, expressed his excitement, stating, “Diriyah is a unique destination and is deserving of the highest standard of products and services to ensure world-class playing conditions for golfers in the future.”

Noah Alireza, CEO of Golf Saudi, highlighted the importance of this partnership, stating, “This partnership is a testament to the dedication of both entities towards elevating Saudi Arabia’s golfing landscape.

The collaborative efforts between Atlas Turf Arabia and DGDA are pivotal in realising our shared vision of golfing excellence and contributing to the culmination of Vision 2030.”

With Platinum TE Paspalum’s track record of success in over 30 golf, sports, and landscaping projects in the Middle East and hundreds worldwide, the DGDA’s golf course stands poised to set a new standard for golfing excellence in Riyadh.

This partnership not only symbolizes a new chapter for the golfing community but also showcases Saudi Arabia’s commitment to sustainable and top-tier golf facilities.
