A new website to enhance awareness golf courses in Dubai is being unveiled today.
The golfindubai.com site provides information on courses designed by star players including Ernie Els, Sir Nick Faldo, Colin Montgomerie and Greg Norman, as well as details on leisure and practice facilities and wider hospitality offers.
The website has been developed by Falcon Golf, an entity announced in February to optimise the benefits golf brings to Dubai working with key golf clubs and tournament sponsors, as well as Dubai Sports Council, Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing and Emirates Golf Federation.
Falcon Golf chairman Peter Dawson said: “Driving greater golf tourism is one of the key goals we set ourselves on our establishment, and I’m delighted that just a few months into our operations we have launched a website which for the first time provides one place where Dubai’s fantastic golf offering is showcased in full.
“A co-ordinated approach between all parties who together make up Dubai’s golf experience will unquestionably pay dividends for all concerned.
“Golfindubai.com is one important step in our endeavour to rekindle awareness among discerning holiday makers, business travellers and Dubai residents of the enjoyment they all can have playing or watching golf here.”
Dubai Tourism director general, Helal Saeed Almarri, said: “Dubai is one of the most esteemed golf locations in the world and has much to offer beyond the courses, from incredible hotels and pristine beaches, as well as world-class attractions for all ages, such as Dubai Mall, the Burj Khalifa and amazing water and theme parks.
“With more courses in the pipeline to complement the world-class choices already available, and initiatives such as this new website, there is huge potential for the sport to help us hit our target of 20 million visitors by 2020.”
