Scheduled for completion in 2009, The Tiger Woods Dubai fittingly
combines the vision of Tatweer with that of Tiger Woods. A world-class
location designed to meet the needs of those who seek excellence and
exclusivity in every dimension of their lives, it is well placed to complement
the lifestyle of a financially dynamic metropolis such as Dubai.
Abdulla Al Gurg, Project Director, The Tiger Woods Dubai, said: "The
Tiger Woods Dubai has become one of the most highly anticipated developments
in the region. The project will stand testimony to our hard work and superior
"Tiger Woods' name brings enormous value to the project and we are proud
to share with him some of the key developments that have taken place since he
reviewed the project during his last visit."
The Tiger Woods Dubai will encompass the first Tiger Woods designed 13
million sq feet golf course Al Ruwaya, which 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 139,000 sq.
feet clubhouse with premium amenities and a high-end destination spa.
Currently, landscaping is in progress for the 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.
Tiger Woods has overseen all facets of the golf course's design and
development, contributing enormously to its distinct features. 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
their physical stamina, while rewarding only calculated risk taking.
Tiger Woods said: "I am proud of my partnership with Tatweer, which has
excelled in developing The Tiger Woods Dubai project and bringing it to this
advanced stage. With its remarkable commitment, Tatweer has demonstrated its
capability to implement the project according to the scheduled timeframe.
"The master plan reflects the phenomenal dimension this project has taken
since it was first conceived, and will serve to enhance its overall stature as
one of the world's most ambitious developments. The design of Al Ruwaya will
reflect what I truly love about golf and I hope, will prove to be a
challenging and strategic course for players of all levels."
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. While master guidelines have been carefully chosen to
ensure that 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 boasts a 10,000 sq. feet 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.
In addition The Tiger Woods Dubai will also feature a Guy Savoy
restaurant and an upscale retail area for residents, members, and guests.
