Donald Trump Jr, Eric Trump Officially open Dubai Golf Club
The Trump International Golf Club Dubai was developed by Damac Properties
US President Donald Trump’s eldest sons Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump were guests of honor at the opening of a Trump-branded golf course in Dubai Saturday, the 1st Trump property project launched since their father’s Presidential Inauguration.
Donald Trump Jr. praised the development of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a close US ally that is also a global trade, transport and tourism hub.
“To see the incredible vision Sheikh Mohammed has been able to put forward for this country is truly awe-inspiring,” he said, referring to UAE Vice-President, Prime Minister and Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum.
“As a developer, which lets us be somewhat artists at times, it is truly incredible to be part of that vision.”
A ceremony featuring fireworks and a classical music ensemble marked the opening of the project announced by the Trump Organisation and Dubai-listed developer Damac Properties in Y 2013.
President Trump’s sons praised their close relationship with Damac’s Chairman in their remarks. Eric Trump said Mr. Sajwani is “a great friend” with a “truly amazing family”.
“We are going to have a lot of fun years together and this is just the beginning of those days,” Eric Trump said.
The Trump International Gulf Club Dubai is part of a development known as Damac Hills, according to Damac. Mr. Sajwani said it was the 1st new golf course to open in the city in “many years”.
Damac pays a licensing fee to the Trump Organization to use the Trump brand.
Last month, before his Inauguration, Donald Trump announced that he would maintain ownership of his global business empire but had handed control to Donald Jr. and Eric while he is President.
The Trump Organisation would not enter into any new overseas deals while he is President, a Trump adviser said.
Have a terrific President’s Day weekend.
