SirShanksAlot Comments: For a golf course built in the desert – it would be nice to see more sand traps. Obviously, this golf course was only going to be for the super-elite. 75 mansions, and 22 palaces? Wouldn’t want to spray one off these tees. What a waste of money!

According to TigerWoods.com, the Al Ruwaya design project in Dubai is to be an 18-hole championship golf course surrounded by 100 villas, 75 mansions, 22 palaces, a 360,000 square-foot boutique hotel with 90 suites and 14 bungalows, a golf academy, a 139,000-square-foot clubhouse and a community center with luxury retail shops. Construction began in 2007 and was targeted for completion in September 2009 — but, like many ambitious endeavors in Dubai, appears to be a victim of the bursting of the real estate bubble. An aerial inspection last week revealed only five distinguishable golf holes (and half of a sixth), no construction on any of the proposed buildings and no activity. Officially, the project is described as “on hold,” but sources in Dubai say that watering has stopped and that after Woods plays the Omega Dubai Desert Classic next week the project “will return to sand.” Al Ruwaya means “serenity,” but that’s far from the mood surrounding Tiger’s first golf course design project.
