The golfing industry in the Middle East once again gathered in one place for a special evening as many of the most iconic golf course facilities and tournaments in the region were put under the microscope by the public vote and a panel of experts working across the sport.
Prominent among those who were present was Peter Dawson, the former chief executive of the R&A who has been recently appointed by the Government of Dubai as consultant to explore opportunities that will continue to build on the city’s reputation as one of the world’s leading golf destinations.
And it was The Els Club Dubai, which is located in the heart of Dubai Sports City and is managed by Troon Golf, who took home some of the most sought after prizes!
Els Club General Manager Chris Brown said: “We are delighted and feel honored to win these three awards, it is great motivation for us going forward. It is testament to the staff of The Els Club, the support of Troon Golf and our desire to be the best in the region.”
The Troon Golf Managed, Els Club Dubai claimed the Golf Maintenance Team of the Year, the Best F&B Outlet of the Year (The Big Easy Bar and Grill) and Butch Harmon School of Golf at The Els Club, took home the Academy of the Year prize.
The Big Easy has become a fantastic place to go for a meal with family and friends; it is relaxed and embodies everything that the Els Club is – high quality and family friendly. It offers a sublime mixture of South African, Malaysian & European style dishes in an environment that everyone can enjoy. With the full selection of Ernie Els vintages and mouthwatering steaks & seafood, it has quickly become a reputed Dubai dining hot-spot!
With the Maintenance Award comes the fully deserved recognition for The Els Club Agronomy Team and is purely down to the efforts and the tremendous amount of work the club put in each and every day to ensure the Els Club Course is consistently presented as one the best golf courses in the region.”
With Butch Harmon School of Golf taking home the Academy of the Year Award for consecutive years, they have firmly cemented their position as one of the top, if not the top, golf academies in the entire Middle East. This is especially impressive given the amount of quality present.
