The floating golf course
It’s been in the pipeline for some time now, but The Royal Indian Ocean Club, the world’s first floating golf club, was in the news again recently as graphic images of the project went viral on the web last week.
In case you haven’t yet heard about it, the $500million (Dh1.8bn) golf course in the Maldives is being developed by the Dutch Docklands company, who are the industry experts in floating technology.
When complete in 2015, the 18-hole golf course will be interconnected by underwater tunnels. The project is located just a few miles from the airport and will boast luxurious accommodations overlooking the course and reef. The course designer’s name is yet to be announced.
