Trump’s two sons are flying into Dubai this weekend because, you know, their dad’s kind of busy…
You know how there’s a Trump-branded golf course opening in Dubai soon? Well it opens this Saturday (as in yes, you can play on it from this weekend), and Donald Trump’s two sons are flying in for the occasion.
As Donald Trump is now the 45th President of the United States he won’t be coming to open the Damac-properties-developed course in Dubailand, but his two sons Donald Jnr, 39, and Eric, 33, have been handed control of their father’s global empire while he’s in the White House.
Dubai-based Damac pay a licensing fee to the Trump Organisation to use the brand on their 28-million-square-foot Dhs22 billion golf course.
The Trump organisation is also involved in the Tiger Woods-designed Trump World Golf Club, which is currently being built at Akoya Oxygen in Al Qudra.
Pictures and an analysis of the 18-hole golf course have been published on GolfDigestME.com, and while it opens this Saturday it’s technically been playable for almost a year. It’s the first 18-hole golf course to open in Dubai since 2010.
Where is it? You’ll find it in the Akoya by Damac development which is off of Al Qudra Road just past Dubai Sports City. Apart from the golf course there will also be an Italian dining spot, an all-day restaurant, a sports bar and a shisha spot among other things (we’ll keep you updated on those).
Golf Digest ME says the short par 3 17th hole will be one of the highlights of the course:
The golfing website says that the ground will have “rumpled fairways, swathes of native grasses, generous open spaces and flowing teeing grounds”.
Remember, there are many Trump golf courses around the world already, including the Trump International Golf Links in Aberdeen.
Here are some more pics showing the course and the surrounding Akoya houses and residences…
