Trump International Opens in Dubai

While their father yells at the media, Eric and Donald Trump Jr. were having a bit more fun this week, travelling to Dubai to open the Trump International Golf Club in Dubai.

There’s been plenty of questions of who will run Trump’s various business units once he took office. US Presidents are forbidden to be involved in the business world or have any holdings therein while serving as Commander in Chief.

The golf club is being run by billionaire Hussain Sajwani, owner of DAMAC Properties, which developed the course.

It’s the 17th golf course opened by Trump’s organization across the world. It is a 7,300-yard, par 71 course inside the 42 million square foot Damac Hills master development.  Gil Hanse, who designed the 2016 Olympic golf course, is the course architect.

The club has a 30,000 square foot clubhouse – the biggest in Dubai, along with four restaurants, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, an infinity swimming pool, a pro shop, a golf academy, a double-sided driving range, chipping facility, and putting greens.

Restaurants include: Fifth Avenue, an imitation of Manhattan in the 1920s; The Terrace, which features American fare; The Ninth Sports Cafe, a sports bar with TVs all over the place and an extensive display of liquor; and Cabanas, which has an outdoor feature surrounded by water that makes you feel like you’re floating above the course.
