February 4, 2015: The European Tour has announced that Jumeirah Golf Estates has become the first golf and property development to join its list of global partners.

 

Jumeirah Golf Estates has a long-standing relationship with The European Tour as host venue to the season-ending DP World Tour Championship, Dubai since 2009 and the first member of the European Tour Properties network in the Middle East. Building on this collaboration, the new agreement positions Jumeirah Golf Estates to the highest rank of ‘Official Partner’ status.

 

The agreement will see Jumeirah Golf Estates promoted through The European Tour’s multi-platform network, including year-round presence on europeantour.com, extensive TV exposure and Official Partner presence at multiple European Tour tournaments internationally.

 

Yousuf Kazim, CEO of Jumeirah Golf Estates, said: “Jumeirah Golf Estates is already a thriving community of families and international visitors, and attracts the world’s attention every year during the staging of the enthralling DP World Tour Championship.

 

“As we continue to enhance Jumeirah Golf Estates’ superior offering, our exalted partnership with The European Tour is a milestone development that cements our status as a world-class residential golf community, and a major stakeholder in international golf.”

 

David Williams, Chairman of The European Tour, said: “As the host venue of our DP World Tour Championship, Dubai, Jumeirah Golf Estates is a world-class development which enables The European Tour to fulfil its mission of bringing elite golf to the world stage.

 

“Today’s announcement that Jumeirah Golf Estates has become an Official Partner to The European Tour further strengthens our already established relationship, and we look forward to many more thrilling conclusions to The Race to Dubai at this outstanding venue.”

 

Located between Green Community and Dubai Sports City, Jumeirah Golf Estates features over 1,000 luxury homes in 14 residential communities, two championship golf courses, Fire and Earth, and the region’s only European Tour Performance Institute.
