Following the development of a number of new championship golf courses and luxury hotels all over the region, Chaka Travel has appointed a new member of staff, former tour professional Richard Mason, to look after this growing section of the company’s business.

Speaking about his new role, Mason said: ‘’I’m delighted to join Mark and the team at Chaka Travel. Their drive to offer the very best service and excellence in luxury golf travel is evident and something that matches my own work ethic. I’ve spent the past four years heading up the inbound sports travel division at a leading destination management company based in Dubai, and this provided me with some amazing insight into the world of Middle East golf travel, and given me the personal experience to help consumers get the very best out of their golf holidays.”
He added: “Whether it be Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ras Al Khaimah, Oman, or further afield, I am excited to compliment the vast experience at Chaka Travel to create the very best value and experience, by adding those unique aspects to the trip that only a local to the destination would know to explore.’’
