Here are the details on the course being built by Dutch Docklands, Waterstudio.NL, and Troon Golf from Inhabitat.com:
“Located five minutes from the Maldives airport, the 18-hole golf course will include luxurious accommodations, which overlook the green fairways and the surrounding reef. The golf course is doubly groundbreaking as it will be built on floating platforms, making it the first floating golf course, and it is also designed to minimize its impact on the surrounding ecosystem.”
“The artificial floating islands will incorporate technologies such as water cooling, water desalination, and the use of floating solar blanket fields. Underwater tunnels will connect the holes and facilities together, while allowing golfers to experience the reef.”
Umm, yes please. I thought it was cool when we saw a golf course that had actual live sharks as the water hazard. Never did I think it would be possible to walk through the sharks like you’re at Sea World. This is incredible and I know it would be high on my list of destinations. Here are two more pictures of the Maldives floating golf course.
