The worlds first floating golf course

The Floating Golf Course

Rising sea levels are threatening many of the islands in the Indian Ocean, including the Maldives. As a result, the small island nation is looking to create floating developments to circumvent the rising sea levels.

The world’s first floating golf course, which will be built on floating platforms, is one of the first major construction projects to make that transition. The golf course will have 18 holes (built on different floating platforms), an underwater clubhouse and two luxury hotels. Underwater tunnels will connect the holes and facilities together. It will all be developed by the¬†Dutch Docklands.

The $520 million artificial islands will be built in India or the Middle East, and then towed to the Maldives.

Appart from being the first complete floating golf course the artificial floating islands will incorporate technologies such as water cooling, water desalination and a wide range of technological solutions.
