Dubai bags Golf Destination of Choice award at International Golf Travel Market

World-class golf courses that have recently come online have helped Dubai achieve the prestigious award of Golf Destination of the Year at this year's International Golf Travel Market (IGTM) that took place in Marbella, Spain. Dubai received the Golf Destination of the Year award for the Africa, Indian Ocean and Gulf States region, surpassing strong contenders from major golf destinations including Egypt, Morocco and South Africa. Award organizers highlighted the excellent standard of service provided at the courses within Dubai.

Thomas Rubi, GM - Hospitality, Leisure & Golf, Dubai Sports City, said, "The Els Club has played its part, together with partners, to promote Dubai as the world's premier golf destination. We look to receive more golfers to take advantage of our course in the near future and continue to help build Dubai's position as one of the leading golf destinations in the world."

Dubai is still relatively new to the golf market with eight courses currently open - and more under construction, while other countries in the nominated region dwarf Dubai in sheer size, most notably South Africa with over 80 golf courses among its current portfolio. The IAGTO Awards are the official annual awards for the golf tourism industry.
