Tiger Woods to design new golf course in Dubai

Published:

Tiger Woods is to design a new 18-hole championship golf course in Dubai, to be built by luxury real estate developers, DAMAC Properties, and operated by The Trump Organization.

Set within the 55 million square feet ‘master community’ of AKOYA Oxygen, the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai will include a state-of-the-art clubhouse, world-class restaurant and pro shop. Some of the highest-premium residential developments in Dubai will overlook the course.

Woods already has golf course design projects underway in Mexico and the United States. His first course will be El Cardonal in Mexico, which is scheduled to open before the end of the year (2014).

Woods said: “I’ve been fortunate to play great golf courses all over the globe, from the original links courses in Scotland to the famous parkland courses in America and the distinctive layouts on the sandbelt of Australia. I hope to bring elements of those great courses and others to the Trump World Golf Club Dubai with the end result being a course that golfers will want to play again and again.”

Site preparation work on the Trump World Golf Club Dubai is already underway, with the course due to open by the end of 2017.
