Default New Home for Dubai Country Club

looks like will be announced shortly..

judging by the amount of work done on the original site that was levelled 2 years ago, wouldn't surprise me if it is built there again, although I know that most of the site is earmarked for the creek extension project..

I saw the plans for it, it was definately for Emirates staff. Way back when all this started the land had been given to DCC, then it was taken from DCC and the affection plan changed to show that it would be soley for Emirates. Unless there has been a change of heart, which I doubt. Time will tell

Reason for it not being for emirates staff is simple - it has to take money to cover its costs.
I can' elaborate further, but believe me, it is NOT for emirates staff - unless they want to pay like everyone else.

maybe, but it isn't the new Country Club either is it? so why did they shaft us of the land in the first place!
