Abu Dhabi dominate Golf Digest Middle East Rankings
December 7, 2011

Abu Dhabi's three championship-ready golf courses have dominated the prestigious regional golf course rankings list compiled by Golf Digest Middle East magazine, widely considered the game's voice of authority in the Middle East.

The Golf Digest Middle East course rankings list, split into 'Editor's Choice' and 'Reader's Poll' sections, saw Yas Links Golf Club crowned the region's best facility by the magazine's respected editorial panel, while Abu Dhabi Golf Club - host venue for next month's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship - and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club placed third and sixth, respectively.

Abu Dhabi placed even higher in the all-important reader charts, where the emirate's three championship courses all ranked in the top four.

"These vital recognitions highlight the significant progress Abu Dhabi has made as a world-class golf tourism destination," said Dayne Lim, Director, Product Development Division, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA) . "Golf tourism is a core pillar in Abu Dhabi's long-term tourism strategy and endorsements like these will only further fuel our potential to sell the destination internationally."

To optimise the emirate's golfing assets on both the domestic and international fronts , ADTA recently launched 'Golf in Abu Dhabi' - an umbrella marketing communications, product packaging and distribution platform. The initiative, which features a diverse range of golf-driven packages and experiences, heavily leverages Abu Dhabi's three championship-ready facilities.

With a wealth of playing options, world-class tourism infrastructure and special promotional packages, the one-stop shop 'Golf in Abu Dhabi' initiative will make it easier than ever before for international golfers to visit one of golf's most exciting and desirable destinations.
