DP World Extends Title Sponsorship Until 2020

222
The DP World Tour Championship, Dubai – The European Tour’s glittering end-of-season tournament held in Dubai, was given a significant boost today with the news that global ports operator DP World has agreed to continue its title sponsorship for another five years

The agreement until the 2020 season, will see DP World support the climax of The Race to Dubai, in addition to the company’s existing sponsorship of European Tour events in India, Hong Kong, China, Turkey and here at this week’s BMW PGA Championship in England.

The DP World Tour Championship – which will celebrate its seventh staging this year on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates from November 19-22 – is already recognised globally as one of golf’s premier tournaments.

Its Roll of Honour reads like a Who’s Who of the game itself – Lee Westwood (2009), Robert Karlsson (2010), Alvaro Quiros (2011), Rory McIlroy (2012), and Henrik Stenson (2013 & 2014) – and this year’s tournament will see the top 60 players on The Race to Dubai once again battle for a share of the US$8 million tournament prize fund, with the winner taking home US$1.3 million.

In addition, the leading 15 players on The Race to Dubai at the end of the tournament will share the US$5 million Bonus Pool, with the eventual European Tour Number One pocketing US$1.25 million.

Speaking at a press conference at Wentworth Club in England, His Excellency Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Chairman of DP World, said: “Dubai and the UAE stand at the crossroads of world trade and this cosmopolitan location is a melting pot of talent, expertise and professionalism much like the sport of golf.  We are delighted to be supporting this prestigious event to bring to Dubai the world’s best golfers and their fans.

DP WORLD TEES UP ANOTHER 5 YEARS AS SPONSOR OF DP WORLD TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP

Global Port Operator driving ahead with climax of European Tour’s Race to Dubai

Dubai is set to remain at the epicenter of golf on The European Tour for the foreseeable future after global port operator DP World announced today that it will continue to be the title sponsor of the DP World Tour Championship, the season ending tournament of The Race to Dubai, for at least another five years.

The move reinforces Dubai’s position as a major trading, business and tourism destination. The agreement, which will run until at least the 2020 season, will see DP World support the US$8million tournament, in addition to the company’s existing sponsorship of European Tour events in India, Hong Kong, China, Turkey and at this week’s BMW PGA Championship in England.

DP World Chairman, HE Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, said: “The DP World Tour Championship is an event of enormous significance for Dubai and the UAE and reinforces our position on the calendar of international sport and as a centre for tourism and trade. The extension of our title sponsorship dovetails with Dubai’s hosting of Expo 2020, an event which will see the world come to the Emirate and further enhance the goal of attracting 20 million tourists per year.

“We are delighted to be again involved as the event offers us a great opportunity to connect with the world, our customers and our partners through one of the most popular sports. We look forward to continuing our association as a global business, and as a barometer of world trade, with a global sport.”

George O’Grady, Chief Executive of The European Tour, said: “The support DP World has shown The European Tour has been evident right from the start of The Race to Dubai and the strength of their ongoing commitment is further evidenced with today’s announcement.

“We thank His Excellency Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem for his personal vision and we look forward to working with him and all his staff as we continue to make the DP World Tour Championship a fitting end to The European Tour season.”

The DP World Tour Championship – which will celebrate its seventh staging this year on the Earth course at Jumeirah Golf Estates from Thursday 19 to Sunday 22 November– is already recognised globally as one of golf’s premier tournaments.Its Roll of Honour reads like a Who’s Who of the game itself – Lee Westwood (2009), Robert Karlsson (2010), Alvaro Quiros (2011), Rory McIlroy (2012), and Henrik Stenson (2013 & 2014) – and this year’s tournament will see the top 60 players on The Race to Dubai once again battle for a share of the US$8 million tournament prize fund, with the winner taking home US$1.3 million.

In addition, the leading 15 players on The Race to Dubai at the end of the tournament will share the US$5 million Bonus Pool, with the eventual European Tour Number One pocketing US$1.25 million.

Over 55,000 spectators attended the 2014 DP World Tour Championship, a third of whom were international visitors. The global television reach exceeded 450 million people via 40 broadcasters worldwide delivering a cumulative global TV equivalency of US$259million.

Dubai’s position as the global trade hub in a region of two billion people is underlined by the role of Jebel Ali Port which together with the Jebel Ali FreeZone contributes to 20% of its GDP. With the addition of Dubai World Central airport this will increase to 50% by 2020. Jebel Ali is the largest port between Singapore and Rotterdam and is the only non- Asian port to make the world’s top 10. It has also been voted the world’s most productive port by the Journal of Commerce.

In 2013, the DP World Tour Championship delivered a US$44million gross economic benefit to Dubai according to independent market research agency Repucom.

The DP World Tour Championship has also raised over US$250,000 during the previous six tournaments to support local UAE charities Special Needs Foundation Group and Friends of Cancer Patients.

A Taste of Signature Living at Jumeirah Golf Estates

Development offers the choicest residence with the stunning golf course views.

For those who consider the sport of golf to be their way of life, an ideal residential villa community to consider will be the Jumeirah Golf Estate (JGE) in Dubai. Located in Jebel Ali District, adjacent to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed road, this extremely prestigious gold development is surrounded by other popular residential communities like The Green Community, Dubai Sports City, Arabian Ranches and Jumeirah Village.

A congregation of Mediterranean – themed villas amidst breathtaking landscaping enclosed within a secure and granted community aptly describes the up market JGE.

The entire project has been planned in four phases. Phase A is ready while Phase B, C, and D will be developed in due course. Phase A is a collection of 13 planned residential communities with over 1,000 villa properties ranging from three to six bedrooms. Seventy – five percent of the properties face the golf courses, while the smaller section faces lakes and green patches.

The golf courses (each designed by a professional golfer) have been further divided into four distinct themes representing elements of life namely; Fire, Earth, Wind and Water. The Fire theme course and villas depict vibrant colors such as brown and gold, while the Earth theme features fountains. International golf tournaments like the Dubai Masters are often hosted on the Earth course.  The Wind and Water courses are under construction, just like the other phases of the golf estates.

Right in the heart of the Earth and Fire courses is the recently inaugurated clubhouse which aims to provide world- class leisure facilities as well as food and beverage options to residents and visitors.  Close to the clubhouse is the Country Club which houses a very large swimming pool. Green parks are scattered all over the development with a large children’s play area within the clubhouse itself.

It has been planned that JGE will have its own community center to cater to the day –to –day needs of its residents. However, for the time being, residents have access to the entire development in the adjoining Motor City, which houses the largest Spinneys in Dubai. Talks of a mall in the vicinity of the project are also underway.

Teeing Off at Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE)

When you are ranked the number three golfer in the world, there’s only one
place to own a home in Dubai – Henrik Stenson invites us in…

When world number three golfer Henrik Stenson looks for a home, it’s only natural that it’s not going to be far from a golf course. Fortunately, as brand ambassador for Jumeirah Golf Estates (JGE), it didn’t
take long for him to find the perfect Dubai residence. “Given what I do, spending most of my time playing
and practising, you want to be near a golf course and here at JGE you have that luxury; says Stenson in an exclusive interview with PW. “You car enjoy the golf and the life- style at the same time. “There are a lot of gooe master communities around the world and this is obviously one of them,” adds tlu Swedish golfer. “It is a place you don’t really need tf leave. You have everything choose from, which include Redwood, Flame Tree Ridge and Whispering Pines, all with different architectural styles and views of both the Earth and Fire Courses, which were designed by Greg Norman. High standards Stenson’s property is a Mediterranean-style four- bedroom villa plus study in Flame Tree Ridge. It’s due to be handed over soon and comes with a Poggenpohl kitchen, Miele appliances, Bang & Olufsen audio and video systems and landscaped gardens, which are standard for all Flame Tree Ridge villas. The price for a similar property is about Dh18 million. “I don’t spend nearly as much time as I used to in Dubai,” says Stenson. “My
base has moved a little bit from Dubai to the US, where I play the majority of my golf, but it’s always good to come back here. “I have lots of friends here and, because I made Dubai my home for almost ten years, the connection is still strong. I have had some great times and some great successes on the golf course here. I have had a lot of good fun times and I got married down here.”

Stenson says the golfing facilities at JGE are first class. “For anyone who is serious about golf, the practice facilities are great. We have two good golf courses and the European Tour Performance [Institute] on the other side of the range, which offers anything you’d like in terms of game improvement and working on your skills to become a better player. You see a lot of tour players making stops here before the season starts, or on the way to some of the tournaments around the word.
“It’s a frequently visited spot for some of the best players in the world. And if you are just a regular weekend golfer, you definitely have everything you need.
