Site preparation work by Middle Eastern developer DAMAC is already underway, with the course due to open by the end of 2017. DAMAC, which will build the development, has survived Dubai's property boom, and subsequent bust, in the latter period of the last decade.
"Dubai is fast becoming one of the most influential golfing destinations in the world, both for the professional game and for amateurs looking to enjoy the great weather, great courses and amazing lifestyle," Woods said in a press release from DAMAC Properties on Tuesday.
"I hope to bring elements of those great courses and others to the Trump World Golf Club Dubai with the end result being a course that golfers will want to play again and again."

Golf master Woods has won 14 major tournaments in the sport he had dominated since the late 1990s, but has suffered a decline in form since 2009.
Indeed, his poor performances and absence from tournaments has been cited as being a key reason behind a decline in golf viewership and equipment sales.
