Trump expanding golfing empire with Dubai golf course

CBSSports.com wire reports

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- Donald Trump plans to extend his golfing empire to the Middle East, opening a course in the desert outskirts of Dubai.

The Trump International Golf Club will be the centerpiece of a 28 million foot project being developed by DAMAC Properties that includes a luxury residential community, hotels, spa and international schools.

It is being developed on land purchased from Dubailand, a much-hyped project that included a $1 billion Tiger Woods golfing estate. The Woods project was suspended due to the economic downturn.

The Trump Organization has 14 courses under its ownership and management across the world, but this will be its first venture into Asia. It did not say who would design the 7,205-yard, par-71 course.
