Encouraged by the response and potential of The Montgomerie Golf Course, developer Emaar Properties has decided to construct a boutique clubhouse and hotel at the facility. Construction of a clubhouse and 19 deluxe rooms, in a number of configurations, including suites and interconnecting rooms, has begun, the company announced. In addition to the deluxe rooms, there will be several fully furnished and serviced villas and maisonettes adjacent to the clubhouse for short-term stay. The expansion is scheduled to finish in 2005. According to the developers, the course will boast the finest golf amenities in the Middle East when completed. “Since it opened, The Montgomerie has become one of the best golf courses [in] the region. [The] construction of the clubhouse and hotel enriches the unique golfing experience and provides an example of the range of modern facilities on offer within an upscale and very smart environment,” said Ken McIntyre, general manager of The Montgomerie. The introduction of a boutique clubhouse hotel is designed to maximise the value of the course’s membership programme. The Montgomerie management is keen to provide visitors the chance to use of the facilities by providing temporary membership to the club for the duration of their stay. In addition to boutique-style accommodation, the clubhouse will host a range of amenities which include a golf shop, a health club comprising a well-equipped gymnasium, treatment rooms for massage, a steam room with plunge pool and an outdoor swimming pool overlooking the 18th hole of The Montgomerie Golf Course. Other leisure facilities include a juice bar cafe, a ‘brasserie deluxe’ style restaurant and bar, snooker room, cigar room and multi-purpose areas for private functions and meetings. The Montgomerie is an 18-hole par 72 championship golf course designed by Colin Montgomerie in association with Desmond Muirhead and managed by Troon Golf. The course covers over 200 acres of landscaped ground and includes 79 bunkers, water features and some exclusive characteristics including the world’s largest green. An added attraction is The Montgomerie Academy, which offers training facilities and innovative coaching programmes. Currently, developer Emaar Properties has ten major real estate projects under various stages of development. These include Dubai Marina, Arabian Ranches, Emirates Hills, The Meadows, The Springs, The Lakes, The Greens and Emaar Towers in downtown Dubai. The company also owns and manages the Gold and Diamond Park and will soon embark on an ambitious plan to build the Burj Dubai: the tallest building in the world and the world’s largest mall.
