Golfing superstar Tiger Woods has been announced as the golf course designer for the exclusive AKOYA Oxygen community.
The luxury real estate development is operated by DAMAC Properties and is being billed as one of the greenest places to live in Dubai thanks to the abundance of parklands, gardens and golf course.
The golf club, known as ‘Trump World Golf Club, Dubai’ will be set within the 55 million square metre community and include a state-of-the-art clubhouse, world-class restaurant and pro shop.
Woods has already gained a strong reputation for golf course design, with projects underway in Mexico and the United States. His first course to open for play will be El Cardonal in Mexico, which is scheduled to open before the end of the year.
‘I can’t wait to see this stunning project come to life,’ said Woods. ‘Dubai is fast becoming one of the most influential golfing destinations in the world, both for the professional game and for amateurs looking to enjoy the great weather, great courses and amazing lifestyle.’
In reference to the style of course that he is creating, 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.”
The Trump World Golf Club, Dubai will anchor the AKOYA Oxygen master community that is located just off the Umm Suqeim road extension and less than 15 minutes from AKOYA by DAMAC.
