Two of President Donald Trump’s sons did the groundwork for increased sales in February when they visited Dubai to open a luxury golf course under the Trump brand. Then in May the President himself visited the Middle East on his first trip outside the US since his election. Upon Trump’s arrival to the region he was met enthusiastically by King Salman of Saudi Arabia and the additional leaders of the Gulf Cooperation Council.
The founder and chairman of Dubai’s DAMAC Properties, Hussain Sajwani, said that Trump’s name has undoubtedly stimulated sales of his luxury homes situated at DAMAC Hills. The 42-million-square-foot development includes Trump International Golf Club.
“Definitely his visit to the region and the improvement of the relations between the GCC or the Gulf and Saudi Arabia has helped give the brand a boost,” Sajwani declared.
A second golf course is in the planning stages: Trump World Golf Club Dubai is scheduled to open by the end of 2018, according to Sajwani. He added that as far as he knows there are no new projects planned by DAMAC with the Trump Organization.
