Ayla is a world-class destination that embraces tourism by creating recreational and residential communities around a series of manmade lagoons in Aqaba.

Ayla Golf Course is the first grass golf course in Jordan and the first golf course in the Aqaba region. The Course consists of the 18-hole golf course, 9-hole golf course and Academy, maintenance facility and practice facility.

The design driver of the Clubhouse, Academy and Comfort Station buildings was to blend the built environment into the natural landscape. Native plants and grasses are used to soften the transition from the buildings to the golf course.
