Donald Trump is putting Gil Hanse's kids through college.

The designer of the 2016 Olympic golf course in Rio de Janeiro and architect of the in-progress renovation at the Trump-owned Doral resort in Miami has been selected again by The Donald to layout his latest course: in Dubai.

Hanse will design Trump International Golf Club, Dubai, which was announced a couple of months ago without an architect named.

The course will be 7,205 yards long, play to a par of 71 and will be a drawing feature to a 28-million square foot development known as Akoya by Damac.

“We have always aspired to design courses around the globe, and Dubai is one of the most sought after golfing destinations in the world,” said Hanse in a release posted at Trade Arabia (via Geoff Shackelford). “It is an honor to team up with Mr. Trump again and we are looking forward to bringing forth our expertise to develop a strategic, fun and interesting course, which will fit into its surroundings, while being accessible for all.”

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
