Troon takes over at Arabian Ranches in DubaiAugust, 2014
Troon takes its Middle East portfolio to eight with exclusive Dubai venue
Troon golf course management has furthered its impressive Middle East portfolio after being chosen to oversee the golf operations at Arabian Ranches Golf Club in Dubai.
The venue forms part of the ownership group’s property, shopping mall, retail, hospitality and leisure portfolio in the Emirate, including The Address Montgomerie Dubai which has thrived under the management of Troon since its inception in late 2001.
Troon will look to position the Arabian Ranches Golf Club alongside its sister venue.
Located in the heart of the Arabian Ranches, the golf club opened in 2004 following initial consultancy from Troon alongside golf course architect Ian Baker-Finch, in association with Nicklaus Design, and Orient Irrigation.
As a true desert-style 18-hole design, the par-72 course makes the most of the natural terrain with immaculate fairways and greens.
This is a truly stunning venue and we’re excited to have been chosen to manage what is set to be an exciting new era for golf here" Sandy waste areas include indigenous shrubs and bushes, in an ever-changing desert environment.
The luxurious Spanish Colonial style clubhouse complements the golf course.
“This is a truly stunning venue and we’re excited to have been chosen to manage what is set to be an exciting new era for golf here at Arabian Ranches,” said Bruce Glasco, managing director, Troon International Division.
“We look forward to working closely with the team on-site to elevate the standards to an even higher level.
“Arabian Ranches Golf Club will be a fine addition to the international portfolio and a new option for Troon loyalists in the region.”
The venue is further complemented by the Arabian Ranches Golf Academy, which includes the latest in teaching technology.
With individual practice areas for putting, short game, and swing technique development, as well as a Par-3 Academy Course, the Academy is well set to inspire participation in the region.
Troon now manages eight golf venues in the Middle East region including the Abu Dhabi Golf Club- home of the European Tour’s HSBC Abu Dhabi Championship, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, The Royal Golf Club in Bahrain, and the currently under development Jack Nicklaus Design course at Al Zorah in Ajman.
