Alfa Romeo has announced that it has become the main sponsorship partner of the Arabian Ranches Golf Club (ARGC). The brand’s values of passion, sporty style, exquisite taste and performance are shared with and expressed to the highest levels by the presence of Alfa Romeo in the setting of one of the UAE and Middle East’s most popular and best conditioned golf destinations.
With the season now in full swing, there’s never been a better time to play a few rounds of golf at ARGC and, at the same time, choose a new Alfa Romeo for the season ahead, with the legendary Italian brand offering great deals across its entire model range, thanks to special prices exclusively available to ARGC members and Arabian Ranches residents. For additional peace of mind, all new Alfa Romeo models also come with a comprehensive five-year manufacturer warranty plus a five-year integrated service plan and guaranteed buy back.
Every new Alfa Romeo customer can also benefit from a wide range of privileges at ARGC, including preferred tee times, unlimited use of range balls, the par 3 course and play on the championship course with golf cart plus discounts on golf lessons, food and beverages and purchases from the pro shop.
ARGC, which has a very loyal membership and attracts thousands of UAE-based golfers all year round, is located within the multi-national Arabian Ranches community, the flagship community of Emaar Properties that comprises close to 6,000 villas. Playing numbers are consistently high, and the popular Ranches Restaurant – firmly established as an incredibly popular venue with panoramic views of the golf course from its terrace – has experienced record footfall numbers since the extensive refurbishment programme that was completed in December 2016.
Founded in Milan, Italy way back in 1910, five key elements have made Alfa Romeo one of the world’s most desirable automotive brands – advanced technology, lightness and efficiency, performance and dynamism, distinctive Italian design and a unique spirit.
These are the essential ingredients to create an Alfa Romeo and which deliver ‘la meccanica delle emozioni’ (‘the mechanics of emotions’ in English). This distinctive line, used worldwide in Italian only, pays homage to the homeland where the legend was born over a century ago. And today still, the brand carries Italian-made pride on everyday roads, on the most famous racetracks and in the hearts of millions of enthusiasts.
