Tiger Woods-designed course at the Cliffs on indefinite hold

Don’t hold your breath waiting for a Tiger Woods-designed layout to emerge at the Cliffs at High Carolina. Silver Sun Partners, the new owner of the seven Cliffs Communities, doesn’t have any immediate plans to build more golf courses, most certainly not one that might cost $25 million or more.

“Does America need another golf course right now?” asked the firm’s CEO, Brett Johnson, in a comment reported by the Asheville Citizen-Times. And then he answered his rhetorical question: “Probably not.”

Johnson hasn’t ruled out developing High Carolina, the Cliffs’ 3,000-acre property outside Asheville, North Carolina, but it appears that Woods’ inaugural U.S. track will need to find a home elsewhere.
