Unless you’ve had your head in a water hazard for the last decade or so, you’ve no doubt heard of a certain golfer named Tiger Woods.
This week, GOLF magazine announced that the sport’s most beloved player will be designing his first U.S. course soon, and in Buncombe County no less.
In an Aug. 6 update at its website, GOLF states that Woods recently signed with Cliffs Communities to design the course for The Cliffs at High Carolina, its new development on Swannanoa Mountain.
The source close to Woods said that “Tiger will be intimately involved with the design.”
In time, he’ll also be intimate with the Cliff’s wallet, if history is any judge. The only other Woods-designed course in the world is currently under construction in Dubai. At the time that deal was struck, the media reported that Tiger would be paid $25 million for his services.
