Dubai Sports City

Dubai Sports City’s mix of residential and commercial offerings, retail and sports creates a supportive community that celebrates every success whether it’s on or off the field.

Dubai Sports City embodies the passion of sport, while its implementation through world-class design and superior build-quality demonstrates an unrivaled business sense by the two forward-thinking partners, Abdul Rahim Al Zarooni and Abdulrahman Falaknaz. The carefully chosen mix of residential, retail, leisure and recreational facilities at Dubai Sports City creates a destination that is more than the sum of its parts.

The two partners that are the driving force behind Dubai Sports City are pillars of the UAE business community and have extensive interests and decades of experience across a wide range of commercial sectors, including real estate, construction, retail, shopping malls and sports management. Through their personal engagement and involvement in the ongoing development of Dubai Sports City, they ensure a winning combination.

Chateau de Chailly

Château de Chailly is a 16th century medieval fortress and is classified as a historical monument. The property was completely renovated starting in 1987 by its current owner, Yasuhiko SATA, and the four-star hotel and 18-hole golf course was opened in 1990.

The golf course was built in 1990 and designed by Thierry SPRECHER et Géry WATINE, who have designed over 50 golf courses in 14 countries. The golf course design has incorporated the natural streams which are in play on three holes and preserved the century old trees throughout the golf course. Golf de Château de Chailly is a parkland golf course with raised greens, which are well protected by bunkers and water hazards. The 11th semi-island par three hole is the signature hole on the golf course with the château in the background.

Crans Montana

The two neighboring resorts of Crans and Montana are situated at an altitude of 1500 m on a sun-drenched plateau high above the Rhone Valley. Together they form one of the biggest holiday destinations in the Valais.

These twin towns have much to offer, including an impressive view of the chain of mountain peaks from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc and a particularly wide programme of activities all year round.

Idyllic mountain village or alpine town? Crans-Montana embodies both and combines all the comforts of a modern holiday resort with an expansive natural landscape and panoramic views of the Valais Alps. The modern side of Crans-Montana offers the most extensive alpine shopping for miles around. It also boasts a renowned cultural and congress centre; and a wide range of accommodation. As a venue for major sporting events, and with a reputation as a golfing Mecca, Crans-Montana draws visitors from all over the world.

Commune with nature in this family-friendly resort, where you can enjoy five swimming lakes; walks through aromatic mountain forests along an extensive network of footpaths; and cosy fondue evenings in rustic inns.
