Damac, Trump Plan New Golf Course In Dubai Within AKOYA Oxygen

The 18-hole championship-standard course, ‘Trump World Golf Club Dubai’, will include a club house, restaurants and pro shop.

Dubai developer Damac Properties has announced it will be developing a second golf course and related facilities in its latest project, AKOYA Oxygen, in partnership with the Trump Organisation.

The 18-hole championship-standard course, ‘Trump World Golf Club Dubai’, will include a club house, restaurants and pro shop.

The designer of the course, a “world-renowned” golf professional, will be announced in a few weeks, Damac said in a statement.

Ziad El Chaar, managing director, Damac Properties, said: “The Trump Organisation is renowned as the best golf course owners and operators in the world and will deliver the highest quality service to players coming to enjoy Dubai’s great climate and AKOYA Oxygen’s great facilities.”

The new course will be the second development for the Trump Organisation in Dubai, following the ‘Trump International Golf Club, Dubai’, at AKOYA by DAMAC, which was launched in May 2013 and is due to open in late 2015.

“I have been hugely impressed with the quality and professionalism of everything in Dubai and it was a natural progression to bring another world-class course to the emirate,” said Donald J. Trump, chairman and president of The Trump Organisation.

The course is set to open by the end of 2017, Damac said.

The developer recently unveiled AKOYA Oxygen, a 55 million sq ft master development located in Dubailand, which will include green open spaces, gardens and water features. The launch of the first two residential clusters at the development last month sold out on the day of launch.

Damac, one of the most active developers in Dubai, has delivered almost 11,000 units to date and has a development portfolio of over 26,000 units at various stages of progress and planning as of June 30 2014.
