Nakheel Golf to build six courses in Dubai
NAKHEEL, the promoters of Dubai’s most prominent real estate projects, has launched a dedicated division focusing on the development of golf in the emirate.
‘Nakheel Golf’ was officially launched in the presence of international golfing star Greg Norman, and other dignitaries. Nakheel Golf, in alliance with Greg Norman, will immediately commence work on developing six prestigious golf courses located in Dubai at selected Nakheel projects. In a separate but related dimension of this association, Sultan Bin Sulayem, chairman of Nakheel, has been invited to join the Executive Board of the Environmental Institute of Golf, the exclusive international body promoting environmentally sound golf courses.
Wahid Attalla, executive director, commercial and operations at Nakheel, said that Nakheel Golf would serve as a full-fledged division of the company, and that it would spearhead Nakheel’s foray into the world of golfing, which includes the concept, creation and maintenance of several unique golf courses in Dubai. The key highlights of these courses are eco-friendly and environmentally sound principles. Norman said: “I will be working very closely with the Nakheel Golf team to make their grand vision become a stunning reality.”
