Scheduled for completion in 2009, The Tiger Woods Dubai fittingly combines the vision of Tatweer with that of Tiger Woods.
The Tiger Woods Dubai will encompass Al Ruwaya, the first golf course designed by Tiger Woods. The 13 million sq. ft. golf course will offer only 200 memberships with residents of the community being given top priority.
In addition, Al Ruwaya will also include a professionally-staffed golf academy, a 145,000 sq. ft. clubhouse with premium amenities, and a high-end destination spa.
Prior to unveiling the master plan, The Tiger Woods Dubai Project Director, Abdulla Al Gurg accompanied Tiger on a site visit, to walk the course and survey the contouring of the completed holes.
Tiger Woods said:
“When I set out to design Al Ruwaya, I wanted the course to reflect what I truly love about golf – a stern mental and physical test that rewards smart thinking. I believe we’ve achieved that goal with a course that will be fun and rewarding for all skill levels to play.”
Currently, shaping is in progress on the 18 hole, 7,800 yard, par 72 championship-quality course, which includes dramatic elevations, stunning water features and an overall design that will challenge and entertain golfers of all skill levels.
Through a choice of six tees and the careful use of topography, length, width, wind direction, hazard placement and contouring, Woods has created a unique series of holes that will test the mental toughness of a professional as much as his physical stamina, while rewarding only calculated risk taking.
Luxury residences at The Tiger Woods Dubai will include 22 palaces, 75 mansions, and 100 signature villas. All residences will be situated on large land areas: palaces (100,000 sq. ft), mansions (50,000 sq. ft), large villas (30,000 sq. ft) and will include cutting edge home technology and exquisite landscaped gardens. The master guidelines have been carefully chosen to ensure the entire community enjoys amenities of the highest standards of quality and consistency.
The 360,000 sq. feet luxury boutique hotel will include 90 suites and 14 bungalows in sizes varying from 1,600-9,500 sq. feet. The hotel will target top-tier clientele and boast a 10,000 sq. foot swimming pool, as well as one of Dubai’s most exquisite spas.
The interiors of The Hotel will be designed by renowned Lebanese designer Elie Saab and reflect his personalized style that is defined by a fusion of simplicity, luxury and modernism. It will also feature Michelin three-star chef Guy Savoy’s first signature restaurant in the region.
