The Els Club at Dubai Sports City has announced that work has officially begun on brand new leisure facilities which will see an expansion of the current clubhouse to include an incredible gym, swimming pool, restaurant, children’s play area and resort style relaxing facilities for all the family.
Having established its roots in 2008, The Els Club is an 18-hole championship golf course, sensationally designed by legendary golfer, Ernie Els and is managed by the world’s leader in upscale golf management, Troon. Drawing upon the original design concept, The Els Club is looking to unveil a stunning extension to its Mediterranean inspired clubhouse expanding its 5-star facilities for both golf club and leisure members to enjoy.
Doubling the size of the current clubhouse facilities, the extension is set to complete in the autumn of 2019 ahead of the peak golfing and outdoor season. Features include a “resort style” pool with a 25 metre section for lengths, a pool bar, a kid’s pool and fun wet area. A new “urban chic” style gym will feature extensive indoor and outdoor space for invigorating classes and work outs and the clubhouse will include an incredible new restaurant, grooming salon and new locker room.
Speaking ahead of the project, Khalid Al Zarooni, President of Dubai Sports City said:
“Just over a decade ago, we had a vision to not only bring the pristine condition of our golf course to the attention of Dubai’s visitors and residents but also everything that goes with that to attract potential new members. Whether it’s our personalised guest service or our world-class retail and food and beverage offerings, The Els Club will continue to have something for everyone in 2019 and beyond.”
Looking ahead to the future and planned completion of the project, Karl Whitehead, General Manager of The Els Club commented:
“This bold move to extend the Clubhouse, underscores the way we operate. It’s our creativity, energy and enthusiasm. It’s the attention to detail we provide both on and off the golf course, which now makes our membership even more competitive with this value-add offering being especially appealing to families.”
The Els Club is again offering their Summer Privilege Card, which gives golfers access to all the club facilities over the summer. Individuals and families can select four of five months between 1 May and 30 September to taste the full Els Club membership experience.
The Els Club will continue to operate its award winning facilities throughout the planned construction works. For further information on both the planned new facilities and the Summer Privilege Card, please visit here.
