Yas Acres Golf and Country Club, managed by VIYA Golf, has been presented with the Agronomy Team of the Year award at the 59club Awards 2023 in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.
Yas Acres Golf and Country Club’s agronomy team, overseeing the recently opened 9-hole facility, has been recognised for the consistency and quality of course conditions, outperforming 18-hole courses around the Middle East, including those affiliated with professional tours. This achievement highlights Yas Acres’ rapid rise since its 2021 launch as a 9-hole course.
Julian Danby, Club Manager of Yas Acres Golf and Country Club, commented: “We’re grateful to the 59club for acknowledging us with the Agronomy Team of the Year Award. This recognition reflects our team’s commitment to maintaining the highest standards across each of our nine holes. Their hard work is evident with the course conditioning.
“As we move forward, we’re excited to build on this achievement and further elevate the experience on offer at Yas Acres. Winning this award motivates us to continue our pursuit of excellence.
“We’re excited to welcome more golfers from around the UAE and further afield to experience and enjoy our unique golf course,” he added.
Yas Acres Golf and Country Club’s success in securing the Agronomy Team of the Year award underlines its emergence and status as a must-play venue for golfers travelling to Abu Dhabi and the UAE.
Located adjacent to the Yas Acres residential community, the floodlit par-36 Fry/Straka-designed golf course is a spectacular addition to the Abu Dhabi golf scene and tests golfers with compelling contours and a lake and stream system that flows through the entire 130-acre property.
59club’s annual awards ceremony recognises the outstanding individuals, teams, venues, and groups within the global golf and hospitality industry for having achieved the highest standards of customer service excellence and sales performance. Qualification for these accolades is unbiased and determined by scores achieved through a detailed and objective mystery shopping programme, which measures the experience afforded to members, visitors, and prospective members spanning the entire golf, leisure, spa, F&B, and hotel operation.
