“We are thrilled to be expanding our portfolio of award-winning courses into Dubai with DAMAC Properties. Dubai is an incredible city that truly understands the meaning of luxury. Trump International Golf Club, Dubai will be built to world-class levels, exceeding all expectations – there will be nothing like it in the region and beyond,” said Donald J.

The double-ended driving range, chipping facility and putting greens will emulate the undulations of the course to accurately reflect the challenge which awaits on the full 18 holes. The development also includes a high-tech golf training academy and four international-standard tennis courts.

The pro shop will offer the latest clubs and apparel, including high-tech analysis equipment to fit members and guests with the perfect clubs.
