Tiger Woods’ golf-course design in Dubai has reportedly been scrapped for good.
ArabianBusiness.com reported Tuesday that Dubai Properties Group, a unit of Dubai Holding, has “dissolved” its partnership with Woods, after his signature golf estate was suspended in 2010 amid the economy crisis and never revived.
The developer will now seek other options to get the project started, but it will have no association with Woods, according to the report. The Tiger Woods Dubai project, which was to include a complex of 100 villas, 75 mansions, 22 palaces, a boutique hotel and golf academy, was originally announced in 2006, with a scheduled opening in ’09.
Woods has since turned his attention to Diamante Cabo San Lucas in Mexico, which broke ground last year. It’s the fourth contracted design for Tiger Woods Design since the firm’s inception in 2006. The other three – Punta Brava in Ensenada, Mexico; The Cliffs in Asheville, N.C.; and Al Ruwaya in Dubai – were either never finished or never opened to the public.
