Donald J. Trump, a wealthy American entrepreneur and currently a Republican U.S. presidential candidate, is a man interested in expanding his interests in real estate, sports, and entertainment. He enjoys the game of golf and is an avid player. Not long ago, he formed an agreement with Dubai-based luxury developer DAMAC Properties to build the Trump International Golf Club; it is to be located just ten minutes from Sheikh Zayed Road.
This overwhelming project of an 18-hole professional golf course has been designed by renowned golf course architect Gil Hanse; it is being built on a 42 million square foot ‘AKOYA by DAMAC’ master development that will comprise of a 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art clubhouse, high-end restaurants and the luxurious Trump Spa & Wellness Centre; it will also include an international-standard tennis courts.
The 7,205-yard, par 71 world-class golf course is scheduled to be completed sometime in 2016, with the luxury villas and mansions that overlook the course following over the next couple of years.
According to The Trump Organization (trump.com), this is a development exceeding all expectations. The Trump International Golf Club Dubai, UAE is to be an astounding venture; there will be nothing like it in the region and beyond.
In addition, there will be also the Trump World Golf Club Dubai, the second golf project to be built by DAMAC Properties of a new 55 million sq. ft. master development, AKOYA Oxygen in Dubailand. It has been designed by the iconic golfing superstar Tiger Woods, said the Trump Organization who will be operating the facility. An 18-hole Championship-standard course will delight any golfer with a unique playing experience, plus admittance to a state-of-the-art club, world class restaurants and a pro-shop.
At the Trump International Golf Club at Akoya – The Beverley Hills of Dubai – investors interested in buying a villa in Dubai can purchase luxury front-line golf villas. These are signature apartments and villas apt for the Dubai’s Premier Golf Community with off-plan with flexible payment terms.
Trump’s projects in Dubai are set to impact the property market with the Trump Estates, which will overlook the golf course. He expects people are going to come from all over the world to play golf.

Trump told Arabian Business during an interview after launching the Dubai course that he expected good things to spill over beyond this development to attract international professional golf tournaments to the course—perhaps the prestigious Ryder Cup to the emirate, one day.
Donald Trump has always been interested in brand-conscious project developments that bring luxury and quality to consumers, in this case property hunters with a keen interest, like himself, in playing golf.
