Golfers need little convincing of the quality of the 27 Gil Hanse-designed holes on offer, nor of the club’s world-class practice facilities including game-changing ‘TrackMan Range’ technology on the floodlit range.
Members and guests also savour insider knowledge of Trump Dubai’s myriad of dining options, five unique locations managed by Skelmore Hospitality Partners. Said members probably wouldn’t mind keeping the sumptuous secrets to themselves but when Skelmore Hospitality Partners are also behind the likes of Roberto’s DIFC, Rumba Cuban Bar & Kitchen, Mercato Centrale and Bolla DIFC, it’s little wonder Trump Dubai’s collection of dining options is now a culinary destination in of itself.
Indeed, Trump International Golf Club, Dubai has become a tasty and tranquil getaway from the city where golfers and non-golfers alike retreat to enjoy the latest dining concepts, including the all-new Italian dining concept, Prato, which is set to open to members and guests soon.
