Tiger Woods Checks on Progress at His Cliffs at High Carolina Course
Funded with $60 million borrowed from property owners, Jim Anthony moves forward with his most ambitious plan – Tiger Woods’ first golf course in the U.S.
Palm Coast, FL – April 28, 2010 – Tiger Woods return to Augusta went more smoothly than most predicted. He played well and the crowd was generally supportive. His second PGA Tour stop since his well publicized fall from grace will be this weekend’s Quail Hollow Championship in Charlotte. On his way there, Woods made a stop at Cliffs at High Carolina near Asheville where construction continues on Tiger Woods Design’s first golf course in the U.S.
The visit was to check on progress and meet with the design team and Cliffs Communities founder Jim Anthony to make some final tweaks in the design. The 7,300 yard course should be completed in 2012 they say. "I spent several hours on the site today and I am very happy with what I saw," said Woods. "With each visit I make I am more excited about this golf course. We looked at several new opportunities which will make a spectacular layout even better." Woods is Chairman of Tiger Woods Design.
The project is going forward even though the high-end real estate market is nearly stalled and the general economy is struggling to turn around. This is largely due to $60 million in financing Anthony was able to obtain by floating a bond issue to Cliffs Communities property owners.
"The commitment made by the members at The Cliffs, and their belief in High Carolina and Jim’s leadership is wonderful to see. Since we announced the project in 2007, everyone at The Cliffs has been tremendously supportive of my first U.S. golf design. The more the project progresses, the more enthusiastic I become about the golf experience. We are creating a classic- style golf course that will be fun and playable, yet still offer a lot of shot values. The golf course will be filled with strategic choices and options and of course spectacular views. I am looking forward to the day that The Cliffs members and I can play my course," Woods said last week. His comments were broadcast Friday on CNBC.
