JA The Resort has launched a ‘first of its kind’ golf tourism initiative for Dubai to target Golf Professionals to bring golf groups to Dubai, and for JA The Resort to become the ‘Resort of Choice’ for those coming to play golf in the emirate.

The initiative, partnered by local DMC’s Desert Gate and Desert Adventures, is targeted at golf groups in Europe and Asia, as well as other key golf markets around the world.

The package provides golf and accommodation for one golf professional along with 7 amateur golfers, with the golf professional having complimentary golf and accommodation.

Rafa Cabrera Bello, JA Resorts Global Ambassador and winner of the 2012 OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic, said: “JA The Resort is a home away from home for me and my family and this JA The Resort initiative is ideal for Pros to bring golf groups to JA The Resort and to Dubai.”

“I have been coming to Dubai for 10 years and now I am a Dubai resident and have treated Dubai as my winter base for many years.”

“The new JA Lake View Hotel property at JA The Resort is an ideal base as it looks over the golf course.”

“The golf facilities, weather, condition of courses and hospitality in Dubai are up there with the best of the world.”

Internationally Renowned

William Harley-Fleming, Cluster General Manager, JA The Resort Jebel Ali Beach, Dubai commented:

“JA Resorts & Hotels have long had an affinity with golf and the JA The Resort Golf Course is internationally renowned for its 5,863 yards, Par 35, 9-hole championship Peter Harradine-designed course.

“The course has historically hosted the Jebel Ali Challenge Match, the week’s opener to the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic at Emirates Golf Club which has previously featured the likes of Tiger Woods, Ernie Els, Sergio Garcia, Seve Ballesteros, Sir Nick Faldo, Lee Westwood, Colin Montgomerie, Jose Maria Olazabal and Rafa Cabrera Bello; the JA Resorts & Hotels official brand ambassador.”

“Both professional and amateur golfers are familiar with the golf courses in Dubai through the European Tour’s final event of the season – the DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates – and the OMEGA Dubai Desert Classic held at Emirates Golf Club, supported by JA Resorts & Hotels.”

“The city of Dubai and the UAE have handled the recent COVID-19 challenges in an exemplary fashion and we are confident that golfers will return to Dubai soon to enjoy a golf and tourism destination that is both safe and accessible.”
