Emaar Hospitality has appointed Edwin Edwards as General Manager of the Arabian Ranches Golf Club in Dubai, which features a world class 18-hole par 72 desert style golf course and adjoining Spanish colonial style clubhouse. In his new role, Mr Edwards will look at identifying opportunities for diversification and growth, whilst increasing profitability.

The Arabian Ranches course designed by Ian Baker-Finch in association with Nicklaus Design features a unique character offered by indigenous shrubs and bushes. The challenging golf course makes the most of the natural terrain with sandy waste proving a challenge to golfers of all ability.

Mr Edwards said, “The Arabian Ranches Golf Club is already a well established club in Dubai, and it is my aim to make further improvements to its hospitality offerings and also to ensure the golf course and club offer the very best of facilities to its members and guests. I am passionate about golf and have worked in the industry ever since I graduated with a major in professional golf management over 15 years ago. Being able to work in a profession that is close to my heart allows me to realise my full potential.”

An ex-professional golfer, Mr Edwards has vast international experience in managing busy and profitable golf resorts throughout the world including Portugal, Ireland, Egypt, and the United States.

Mr Edwards was awarded a scholarship to the Methodist University in North Carolina where he completed his BSc in Business Administration with a major in professional golf management and is also a Faldo Certified Instructor as well as qualified in CPR.

Mr Edwards joins Arabian Ranches Golf Club from Alto Golf & Country Resort, Portugal where he was Resort Director. Previously, he was Managing Director of Universal Golf Consulting Ltd, in Ireland and General Manager, The Ring of Kerry Golf and Country Club, Ireland. He has also held senior golf management positions with the JW Marriott Golf Club in Egypt and various Marriott Golf Clubs in the US.
