American professional golfer Tiger Woods visited the AKOYA Oxygen golf course at Trump World Golf Club Dubai and reviewed the project plans with the developer’s chairman.

Woods, who was in Dubai competing in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic 2017 this week, had the opportunity to review plans with Damac Properties’ chairman, Hussain Sajwani and also provided design direction while touring the construction of the first few holes.

The golf club will be the second in Dubai to be operated by the Trump Organization, following the Trump International Golf Club Dubai to open later this month.

Niall McLoughlin, Senior Vice President, DAMAC Properties, said: “It is a pleasure to welcome Tiger Woods to see first-hand the progress on Trump World Golf Club Dubai, which is progressing as planned and is set to open in 2018.

Damac has confirmed that the backbone infrastructure design has been completed and construction works are underway on the Trump World Golf Club Dubai.

The golf course will include a state-of-the-art clubhouse, world-class restaurants and an expansive pro-shop as well as practice facilities, staffed by PGA qualified teaching professionals.

McLoughlin added: “Tiger Woods’ insights were invaluable in ensuring the golf course is truly world-class. He was delighted with the level of progress to date and looks forward to seeing the project advance further in the months ahead.”
