Guests at Hilton Ras Al Khaimah Resort and Spa can now play a round of golf, and simultaneously tick-off their good deed for the day, thanks to the launch of eco-friendly golf from August 31st 2019. With the golf course set right alongside the beautiful Arabian Gulf, any guest who hits one of the new eco-friendly balls into the ocean - will be giving a little gift to the marine life rather than adding to the waste worriment.
The all-new sustainable sport is waving goodbye to the litter bug that is the regular golf ball and is instead opting for environmentally friendly alternatives. The Eco-Golf ball is ecological, made from renewable and non-toxic materials and is 100% biodegradable. The best part, these golf balls also double up as a delicious meal for marine life as they feature a fish food filling. Once the ball hits the water, its external layer biodegrades in less than 48 hours and releases the food contained in its core and disperses it in the surrounding waters.
As part of Hilton’s ‘Travel with Purpose’ program, the launch, which is a resort first in Ras Al Khaimah and the Northern Emirates, comes as part of an ongoing initiative to preserve the environment in the region. Completely safe for marine flora and fauna, the Eco-Golf balls bring an added value to the sea life, which means golfers will be able to improve the sustainability and biodiversity of the marine environment, while they practice their favourite sport.
All hotel guests can play a spot of Eco-Golf by purchasing a set of 10 balls for AED 50 and 20 balls for AED 99. They will then have access to enjoy the pristine strip golf course to perfect their swing and feed the fish.
