Construction Halts on Tiger's Dubai Course
The halt to The Tiger Woods Dubai project, which included high-end villas, shows that Dubai's market is still feeling the effects of the severe downturn that hit the former boomtown more than a year ago.
A statement Monday by the golf course developer, part of Dubai Properties Group, to The Associated Press says the decision to put the development on hold was based on economic factors, but it could resume if conditions improve. Only a few holes on the course have been completed.
Woods plans to play at Dubai's Desert Classic, which begins next week.
