Jumeirah’s 101 New Golf Buggies Feature Inspirational Artwork

Guests at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Madinat Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Hotel will soon be travelling between the resorts in one of 101 new luxurious golf buggies decorated with artwork inspired by the UAE’s heritage and culture.

 The project is the result of collaboration between Jumeirah Group, Dubai Culture and Brand Dubai, which sees the new fleet of vehicles featuring the artwork of four female Emirati artists and one UAE-based artist.

 “The provision of 101 new golf buggies provides a unique canvas and we quickly realized that this could be used to support H.H Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision for Dubai to become an open air museum by 2020,” said Margaret Paul, General Manager of Madinat Jumeirah. “Forming a partnership with Dubai Culture and Brand Dubai, we have worked with some extremely talented artists to deliver artistic concepts inspired by the traditions of the UAE and Dubai. The result is a unique experience that brings a combination of modern artwork and the heritage of the country to the guests.”

The golf buggies have been designed exclusively for Jumeirah by Danish manufacturer Garia, a leader in luxury golf buggies. The construction of the buggies - which are 100% electric - utilizes wind turbines to generate 39% of the power required for the vehicles’ construction. Each buggy is comprised of more than 1,700 pieces.

Moza Suwaidan, Director Projects & Events, Dubai Culture and Art Authority said, “By providing our artists with such platforms, we are looking to further the aims of the Dubai Plan 2021, in order to establish Dubai as a definitive cultural destination and a fast-growing global arts hub. These unique visual designs by the UAE’s creative community bring art to the attention of both residents and visitors in innovative ways, using public objects as a canvas. We are confident that the 101 project will positively influence people’s perceptions of the city, by shining a spotlight on the Emirate’s flourishing arts scene.”
