Foxhills was recognised for our continued commitment to advancing our customer experience and exceptionally high standards of service by keeping a coveted place in an exclusive collection of just 13 elite golf venues across the world.

59club, the industry-leading customer service analysts and training provider within global golf, unveiled its new Eminent Collection last year, signifying the global benchmark of excellence within the golf and hospitality landscape. 

The collection includes individuals and properties responsible for consistently delivering the finest levels of service, with independent non-subjective scrutiny through a mystery shopper programme underpinning the integrity of the selection.

Eligibility into the collection is based on accruing points for performance over a minimum of five years and is selected through properties that consistently feature in the 59club Service Excellence Awards, where Foxhills held 'gold flag' status for the past few years.

Out of the 13 properties in 59club’s international network to achieve this prestigious accolade, five were from the UAE, one was from Europe and seven were from the UK.

And we were in excellent company with some of the most iconic golf venues across the world; Saadiyat Beach Golf Club was the only newcomer to the collection, joining The Belfry Hotel & Resort; The Celtic Manor Resort; Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club; Emirates Golf Club; Forest of Arden; Gleneagles; Golf Son Muntaner; The Grove; Rockliffe Hall; Trump International Golf Club, Dubai and Yas Links Abu Dhabi.

Nine new industry leaders also joined the existing 22 individuals honoured with Eminent status in 2022. Sean Graham, our recently promoted Director of Golf, maintained his place, recognising his commitment to maintaining exceptionally high standards and tremendous leadership qualities during his long-serving engagement with 59club.

Simon Wordsworth, CEO of 59club said; “What an incredible celebration of ‘excellence’! The Collection  came together to welcome our newcomers to this elite group of industry champions, whilst we honoured our existing members for a second term. The Eminent Collection is the ultimate accolade we can bestow on any venue or individual, and it remains 59club’s honour and privilege to continue to shine a light on the people who are shaping the direction the industry continues to take, by maximising the experience that every single customer can enjoy.”
