Saadiyat Beach receive environmental certificate
May 5, 2011

Tourism Development & Investment Company (TDIC), the Abu Dhabi-based master developer of Saadiyat Island and its stunning Saadiyat Beach Golf Club designed by 8-time major winner Gary Player, are thrilled to announce its certification in Environmental Planning. Awarded by the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program for Golf Courses (ACSP), an international program administered by Audubon International, the certificate is designed for landowners that preserve and enhance the environmental quality of their property.

Although the picturesque venue has received critical acclaim from the world's golf and travel media, it is a commitment to promoting sustainable processes that separates it from most other courses in the region. With the island being a natural habitat for a variety of wildlife species, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club has made a conscious effort to promote environmental awareness on site, including its opulent Hawksbill Restaurant, which has been named after the indigenous turtle that call the island home.

"We are delighted to receive the certificate in Environmental Planning, which is testament to our continued commitment of the natural surroundings on Saadiyat Island," commented Ray Manulat, General Manager Saadiyat Beach Golf Club. "What makes this area so special is a combination of world-class facilities that compliment the beauty of the environment. Although we strive to offer our guests a comprehensive leisure experience, we aim to do so in a way that is responsible to this unique ecological environment.

With unrivalled panoramic ocean views and expansive bunkering, the championship course has received numerous awards over the past 12 months, including "Best Golf Course" in the Middle East and Africa, at the 2010 CNBC Property Awards. With a host of new developments coming to the Island in the near future, in addition to the existing Golf Academy and Hawksbill Restaurant, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club looks set to become one of golf's most highly sought golfing developments.

Managed by Troon Golf, the world's largest golf management company, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is the flagship sports facility on Saadiyat Beach, a future magnet for high-end visitors and residents. A host of planned exclusive 5-star resorts will create one of the world's most premium and stylish destinations.
