Earth works over at Tiger Woods

By Staff Writer

The Tiger Woods Dubai, a member of Tatweer Dubai, yesterday announced it has successfully completed bulk earth works at the 55 million sq ft golf community development, enabling the project to progress to the next phase of construction.

All remaining bulk earth works are now complete on the road network, commercial buildings, residential plots and Al Ruwaya Golf Course. The resulting effects on Al Ruwaya Golf Course, Tiger Woods Design's first project, is dramatic typography, with elevations reaching 78 metres above sea level, including a difference of 29 metres between the lowest point, the lakes, and the highest point.

Abdulla Al Gurg, Project Director, The Tiger Woods Dubai, said: "The successful completion of bulk earth works marks an exciting phase in the development, as it continues to take shape into what we believe will be one of the most sought after golfing destinations worldwide.

"As we prepare for the next stage of work at the Al Ruwaya Golf Course, we are optimistic the course designed by ace golfer Tiger Woods will offer a unique experience for golfers of all proficiency levels."

The plant nursery at the golf community development already boasts over 60 acres of grass – the equivalent of nine holes – and houses nearly 4,500 trees and a wide variety of shrubs. The nursery features a reverse osmosis plant that purifies 5,000m3/day of treated sewage effluent water to specified standards.

The treated water will ensure both golfers and residents will be able to enjoy crystal clear lakes and other water features.

Located at Dubailand, The Tiger Woods Dubai is a golf community comprising a golf academy, a 139,000 sq ft clubhouse with premium amenities, a high-end destination spa, 22 palaces, 75 mansions, and 100 luxury villas and community service facilities.
