Tiger Woods to design a golf course in North Carolina

The world number one made public his 1st American design in North Carolina through his company "Tiger Woods Design".

Tiger Woods to design a golf course in North Carolina Now that the victory at the 2007 PGA Championship is a fact, Tiger Woods is looking forward to designing his first American course near Asheville, North Carolina. The name of the course will be "The Cliffs at High Carolina" and Tiger Woods has specifically requested as a part of the deal that the course will allow only walkers.

 This is not the first project of this sort for the world number one. Last year he established his company "Tiger Woods Design", already working on a project in Dubai. He admitted that more projects are in the near future for "Tiger Woods Design", handpicked to match his busy schedule.

 “My goal is to design a handful of very unique courses around the world, and The Cliffs is a perfect fit for my first American design. Seeing what they’ve created with some of the world’s best designers is very inspiring, and I’m looking forward to adding my own style into the mix. When I first visited High Carolina, I loved the site and the spectacular 50-mile views of the Asheville area and the Blue Ridge Mountains. When I got to the top of the mountain and looked across those meadows I knew this would be the site of my first American design. I hope this will become one of the most talked about views in the country,” Tiger Woods said on Tuesday, announcing the first American job for "Tiger Woods Design".

 The Cliffs is a community of golf courses in North Carolina with three layouts designed by Jack Nicklaus, who leads Tiger Woods with 18 majors to his 13. Pictured above is the The Cliffs at Walnut Cove, one of the layouts by Jack Nicklaus.
