Tiger Woods Dubai earth works completed
Dubai, January 15, 2009
The Tiger Woods Dubai, a member of Tatweer Dubai, 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, said an official spokesman.
The resulting effects on Al Ruwaya Golf Course, Tiger Woods Design’s first project, is dramatic typography, with elevations reaching an astounding 78 metres above sea level, including a difference of 29 metres between the lowest point, the lakes, and the highest point.
“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,” said project director, The Tiger Woods Dubai, Abdulla Al Gurg.
“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 elevations have been designed to craft a unique interface between the Al Ruwaya Golf Course and the residences, thus creating a more natural playing and living environment.
Keeping pace with the work on the bulk earth works are other individual elements at The Tiger Woods Dubai development that contribute to the overall progress of the project.
The plant nursery at the massive 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 (RO) plant that purifies 5,000m3/day of treated sewage effluent (TSE) 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 world’s most ambitious leisure, tourism and entertainment destinations, The Tiger Woods Dubai is fast taking shape as an exclusive golf community encompassing a professionally-staffed 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. – TradeArabia News Service
