As soon as golf became available on Privilee, the team at Privilee HQ couldn’t wait to get on the course! In particular, Head of Sales & Memberships, Sophie, alongside Matt and Dane from the Corporate Team were eager to host their next meeting at one of Privilee’s Golf Courses. An early game of golf, followed by breakfast was the perfect way to brainstorm ideas before heading to the office!

Super simple booking process!
We pre booked with JA Golf Course on the phone just a few days before, this was very straightforward and the JA staff are SO helpful - the whole process was smooth. We just informed them that we are Privilee members and requested a tee time.
Checking in with Privilee was easy, the same as if we were going to a beach club, simply open up your app and tap ‘Card’ when you get to the reception at JA Golf Course, the team there will scan your QR code and you’re ready to go!
We rented one set of clubs, (which was only AED 75!), and were handed our buggies, then headed to have a few practice swings on the driving range before going to the first hole of the morning.
The exceptionally picturesque course is a 9 hole Par 36 course. There are multiple tee’s at JA, which was perfect to cover all of our abilities. For myself (not exactly a pro golfer), the course was manageable being a shorter hitter, even around the water.
For the more experienced golfers (Matt), he found parts of the course to be very narrow with a variety of bunkers, not exactly plain sailing all the way around! Plus, the variety of tee options much further back meant it was a very fair game.
Keep an eye out for the peacocks and gazelles…they are not shy, they will walk right in front of you and your line of shot!
Great Golf Club facilities
Back in the Golf Club, Privilee Members have access to the showers and changing facilities, which was very convenient and meant we could have some breakfast and hold our morning meeting at the resort - and freshen up after a morning in the sun!
We went to 81 in JA The Resort for breakfast, we were all very impressed with the quality of the buffet! I’m not usually one for a buffet however they had all the options available I would usually order.
If there was anything in particular you were after that was not on display, you can just order it to the table. I asked for some avocado so I could make my go-to breakfast (avo toast) and the team at 81 quickly bought me some fresh avocado from the kitchen - the service here is brilliant.
The buffet breakfast options also included various egg options (including an omelette station), fruits, yoghurts, pancakes, waffles, cereal, cheeses, meats, and SO much more.
You can choose to keep it clean with smoked salmon and fruits, or go full in for an English breakfast - like the boys did!
Our 20% Privilee discount came in super handy here, breakfast (including fresh juices and coffee) was just AED 96 per person!
During breakfast, we had our meeting and were then back in the office by 10.30am. It really was a thoroughly enjoyable and productive morning for myself and the Corporate Team - looking forward to The Track at Meydan next week!
