Tiger Woods Golf Course Progresses

This from the Golf Course News:

In January 2010, site prep was continuing on this high-end project, which involves Tiger Woods' first-ever GC design in the U.S. Earlier in December '09, the project backer, Cliffs Communities, released a statement following Woods' marital improprieties that they were standing behind the GC designer. If all goes well, the GC will open for play in 2011. Woods has been assisted by Beau Welling, a former associate of Tom Fazio's. The president of Tiger Woods Design is Byron Bell. In August '07, Woods announced he'd be doing his first American design at this development on the NC-SC border. Full construction began in '08 following the receipt of final permits. The 5,000-acre site is in the Blue Ridge Mountain area of Swannanoa, NC. In addition to an 18-hole private, 7,500-yard GC designed by Woods, the project by Cliffs Communities involves the above HUs, various recreational amenities and full infrastructure.
