Viya Golf, a business of Dubai Golf, is proud to announce its success at the 2023 World Golf Awards, where the organisation’s venues clinched three prestigious accolades within the United Arab Emirates.
Yas Links, the jewel in Viya Golf’s crown, was honoured as the ‘UAE’s Best Golf Course’, underscoring its exceptional quality and the memorable golfing experience it offers to all who visit. Yas Links will be seen on the world stage again in 2024 as the DP World Tour returns for a new playoff and Rolex Series event, the Abu Dhabi Championship, ahead of the DP World Tour Championship final at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.
Yas Acres Golf and Country Club, the newest of the Viya Golf properties, was awarded the coveted title of ‘UAE’s Best New Golf Course’. This recognition highlights the precision and dedication that went into creating the exciting nine-hole golf facility on Yas Island, that rivals the very best courses in the region for its challenge and conditioning.
In addition, Saadiyat Beach Golf Cub was bestowed with the title of ‘Abu Dhabi’s Best Golf Course’. Revered as a sustainability sanctuary and haven for wildlife, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club boasts wonderful views on every hole, and impeccable course conditions to match.
Julian Danby, Cluster Club Manager for Viya Golf, expressed his delight, saying: “We are thrilled to receive these accolades from the World Golf Awards. These recognitions are a direct result of the dedication that our entire team puts in daily in order to deliver the very best golfing experiences across our venues.
“This really motivates us to continue working hard to further improve our offering, maintaining the highest possible standards, and creating unforgettable memories for our members and guests. We’re grateful to the World Golf Awards for recognising the progress and quality that we have achieved, and these awards mark a significant milestone in Viya Golf’s journey, inspiring us to set even higher standards in the years to come,” he added.
The World Golf Awards is a prestigious platform that recognises excellence in the golf tourism industry. It is a celebration of outstanding golf destinations, courses, and the professionals behind them who continually strive for perfection.
Yas Links, Yas Acres Golf and Country Club, and Saadiyat Beach Golf Club are operated by Viya Golf, a business of Dubai Golf, which owns and operates Emirates Golf Club, Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club, and Topgolf Dubai, in Dubai.
