The golf facilities available in Abu Dhabi have received an award from Golf Journal.

The golf facilities in Abu Dhabi could help to attract more visitors to the area in the future as they have been awarded a prize.

Golf Journal has announced the emirate’s golfling facilities have been given the newcomer destination of the year trophy at its annual Travel Awards, which are hosted in Berlin.

The emirate managed to score a record breaking 77,721 points from the judging panel to scoop the honour and fought off competition from Mauritius, Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria.

“To have Germany’s golf industry experts overwhelmingly recognise Abu Dhabi’s diverse and dynamic product significantly strengthens our golf tourism credentials,” said Dayne Lim, product development director at Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.

Abu Dhabi received its prize based on its overall excellence and commitment to producing high standards of course condition and service.

The emirate is also the home of one of the most exciting Formula 1 races, with this year’s contest taking place on November 11th.
