Tiger Woods' golf-course design business, TGR Design, is booming. After his first golf course, El Cardonal, opened in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico to rave reviews, Woods' overhaul of Bluejack National near Houston was warmly received for its smart design for golfers of all skill levels.
Woods is now working on a golf course in China, has completed a design that will open as Trump World Golf Club in Dubai (his second design in Dubai, first to open), is working on a new design in Chicago that will combine together two Chicago Park District courses along Lake Michigan and is now taking on a short course and 18-hole course design at Jack's Bay on Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. He's also developing another course on the Diamante resort in Cabo and a short course there.
However, Tiger Woods' first few designs never actually opened. Woods had a design called Al Ruwaya in Dubai that had one-third of the course planted and laid out before the worldwide housing and finance crisis that triggered the Great Recession in the U.S. led to the end of work on that project, which never resumed. Woods also had a course design at Punta Brava, a development in Baja California that is yet to see the light of day. Woods' first U.S. design was to be at The Cliffs in North Carolina, but the development folded.
