Real estate mogul Donald Trump and golfing icon Tiger Woods are set to pool their efforts into a new 18-hole championship golf course in the Arab city of Dubai.
Woods is to design the course, which will feature a "state-of-the-art clubhouse", "world-class restaurant" and will be set among some of the most expensive residential developments in the region.
Trump's company The Trump Organization is set to operate the course, in addition to the 17 global golf clubs that already make up part of his portfolio.
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.
The sporting legend is currently working on six different courses around the world, according to his website, but has seen little success in Dubai to date. His website still states that he is part of a team building the Al Ruwaya course in the Emirate state, which was first announced in 2007, but plans are yet to be completed amid reports that the project never got off the ground.
For Trump this new announcement marks a further move into golfing real estate and another course planned for Dubai.
The Trump Organization has already announced a 1-million-square-foot development for the country, called the Trump International Golf Club, Dubai. The separate golf course, announced Tuesday, will be called the Trump World Golf Club, Dubai.
The billionaire's foray into golf courses hasn't been without its fair share of problems, however. A course in Scotland ran into difficulties with local opposition and a legal battle regarding an offshore wind farm built in close proximity. While a course on the west coast of Ireland is also facing issues, including a receding coastline, proposals for wind turbines and an endangered microscopic snail causing difficulties for future developments.
