Three – time European Tour winner Richie Ramsay has signed an ambassador agreement with Park Rotana Abu Dhabi, one of the leading hotels in Abu Dhabi. Following a fantastic finish to the 2014 season, Ramsay cemented his position in the World’s Official top 80 early in the year when he picked up his third European Tour title at the Trophee Hassan II event in Morocco last month.
Ramsay played in the Shenzhen International last month where he finished in 11th place. He will commence a busy schedule of events across Europe over the summer months before heading back to the Middle East for the Race to Dubai’s Final Series.
Rotana, a leading hotel management company in the Middle East and Africa, was founded in 1992 and opened its first property in Abu Dhabi in 1993. Today, Rotana manages a portfolio of over 100 properties throughout the Middle East, Africa, South Asia and Eastern Europe with an aggressive expansion plan in place. As part of the Rotana group, Park Rotana Abu Dhabi is a 5-star hotel designed in a vibrant modern style, providing a combination of deluxe accommodation, diverse culinary experiences and recreational facilities.
Ramsay was delighted about the new partnership and commented: “I am really excited to have Park Rotana Abu Dhabi as my second home for the 2015 season. Having the chance to practice my game in the Middle East is a huge benefit considering how cold it can get in the winter months in Scotland! After a great week in Morocco I am feeling really confident about my game right now, so fingers crossed I can bring some great exposure for the team.”
Francisco Giles, General Manager of Park Rotana Abu Dhabi said: “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Richie who has established himself as one of the best professional golfers in the world. We look forward to welcoming him to our hotel and wish him continued success for the season.”
