Dubai wins Golf Destination of the Year at IAGTO awards

Dubai Award On Stand ® Peter Ellegard 0655

Dubai and its extraordinary golf offering has been recognised by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators (IAGTO) at its annual IAGTO Awards ceremony, collecting the Golf Destination of the Year for Africa, Gulf States & Indian Ocean 2018 title.

This award, which was chosen by IAGTO members and presented during a glitzy ceremony at the Palais Des Festivals Et Des Congrès in Cannes, is testament to the vision of Dubai, which has shaped the development of Dubai’s golfing landscape over a period of more than 30 years.

This acknowledgement of golf as a key tourism driver has seen Dubai establish one of the most advanced golf tourism programmes, servicing operators and customers with its renowned high standards.

One of the most significant recent steps in reaffirming Dubai’s commitment to attracting visitors has been the creation of golfindubai.com, a new website which has been designed to enhance awareness of the premium golf destination that convenes - for the first time in one place - everything visitors and tour operators need to know about experiencing golf in the city.

Christian Roemer, golf tourism manager of Falcon Golf, said of the award: “Dubai continues to show impressive growth in its stature as a world-leading golf destination and must now be considered amongst the very best provisioned regions globally when it comes to attracting golfing tourists.

“We are delighted to be recognised by the members of IAGTO with this most recent accolade, as we continue to optimise the sport of golf in Dubai by uniting key stakeholders and increasing the worldwide awareness and appreciation of Dubai.”
