IMG PRESTIGE EXPANDS PARTNERSHIP WITH DUBAI GOLF
IMG and Dubai Golf have strengthened their partnership, with IMG Prestige members now enjoying preferred access to Emirates Golf Club, Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and also Jumeirah Golf Estates.
Emirates Golf Club, host of the European Tour Omega Dubai Desert Classic and Omega Dubai Ladies Masters, was the first all grass championship golf course in the Middle East when it opened in 1988. Taking pride in its 36 holes of world-class golf, the Club features two of the city’s finest courses, the Majlis and the Faldo, which is also the only 18-hole course in the region to offer night golf.
The Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club is conveniently located in the heart of the city, only a few minutes from the airport, and it offers both an 18-hole championship course and a par-3 nine-hole course. The championship course's layout features multi-tiered greens and undulating fairways that are surrounded by carefully constructed mounding and natural vegetation, including both date and palm trees.
Jumeirah Golf Estates is one of the UAE's great golf resorts with two 18-hole championship Greg Norman-designed golf courses, Fire & Earth. The Club is also home to the DP World Tour Championship, the season ending finale of the European Tour Race to Dubai.
Russell Hannah, Senior Director, IMG Golf Course Services, commented: “The Faldo course at Emirates Golf Club has been a key part of the IMG Prestige network for many years and we’re delighted to now welcome not only the award-winning Majilis course, but also the two other Clubs which are part of the Dubai Golf family: Dubai Creek and Jumeirah Golf Estates. These are superb additions to our growing network and I am sure IMG Prestige members will enjoy visiting Dubai and playing such enjoyable & challenging layouts.”
Chris May, CEO, Dubai Golf, commented: “We have a long-term relationship with IMG and I am confident that Emirates, Dubai Creek and Jumeirah Golf Estates members will take good advantage of the 200+ premium courses IMG Prestige has to offer around the world. At the same time, IMG Prestige members can now enjoy a fantastic golfing destination and play all of our courses in Dubai.”
