Nakheel Leisure has reported strong interest in golf memberships for Jumeirah Golf Estates, which is hosting the Dubai World Championship presented by Dubai World this week.

The company has been offering a limited number of private memberships for the first time this month. By the end of day two of the Championship, it had sold more than 50 memberships.

Sales were helped by an introductory offer during the Championship. Annual memberships were available for AED 32,000 per year (against the AED 45,000 full price) as well as a special rate on debenture memberships.

Saeed Harib, Managing Director of Nakheel Leisure, said: “The first two days of the Dubai World Championship have seen more than 22,000 visitors pass through the gates and golfers from Dubai and around the world want a chance to play on Greg Norman’s stunning new course.

“This month marks the first time we have offered a limited number of memberships to private members and we are not surprised by both the level of interest and the actual memberships taken up, given the quality of the course and the reaction of leading players such as three-time Major winner Padraig Harrington.

“It supports our belief that this will be one of the best golf destinations not just in the Middle East but in the world.”

The Club, at Jumeirah Golf Estates, is exclusive to members and their guests. As well as individual and debenture memberships, Jumeirah Golf Estates is offering Founder and corporate memberships.
