Tiger's course in Mexico under construction

After three false starts, Tiger Woods is finally expected to make his architectural debut next summer.

Woods’ initial design is emerging at Diamante, a resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico that already features Davis Love III’s highly rated Dunes course. Joe Passov of Golf magazine reports that four of the holes on Woods’ El Cardonal layout have been shaped, and grassing is expected to begin any day.

“I call the design style ‘Old California,’” Woods said.

Passov doesn’t think Woods has necessarily set out to create a great course, but he believes that the track will be “walkable and playable, with variety and strategy.” Of course, Woods may simply be trying to lower expectations. When it opens, his layout will be as closely scrutinized as Donald Trump’s course in Scotland was.
