Here is what Rory Mcilroy had to say about Augusta National Golf Club
“Where should I begin with Augusta? Every hole seems to have a personality of its own, and the atmosphere on tournament days adds a dimension unlike any other event. It’s Beauty and the Beast stuff. I said before that I could play the par-5 13th all day. I think I still feel that way. There’s danger left and trouble if you’re too straight. But if you can move the ball right to left, there’s a great chance of making the green in two. And what a green! Unless you’re in close with your approach, two putts is a good result.”

An aquatic driving range, short games practice areas, putting greens and a 9 hole par 3 Academy course will add to the golf experience. The course design with multiple tees will offer the ultimate golf experience to all levels of golfers alike.
The design will include many interesting water features where some of the holes on the island will be interconnected by a revolutionary underwater tunnel.

The ultra-modern golf academy features state-of-the-art computer and video equipment to analyze a players swing. The instruction is tailored to the individual and can work for a player at any level, from amateur to pro.

Troon Golf, the worldwide leader in upscale golf course management, acts as our consultant and advisor on the golf course, which will be built on floating platforms designed to minimize the impact on the surrounding ecosystem.
Within the development romantic homes and townhouses have been designed in venetian style, secluded in a village where everyone can enjoy a stroll through silky streets with some boutiques, an ice cream parlor, little restaurants and bars. Around the golf course some ultra-luxury palatial style villa’s will be built to create a stunning environment. This will definitely be the place where every golfer in the world will want to leave his or her footprint.
“Recently, we have acquired a private Lake of 185 Acres (75 hectares) in Miami, which we will develop with Floating Private Islands. This will be a showcase model to US cities and local governments on how Floating technology can change their approach in the fight against the rising sea level. For many centuries, the Dutch have been fighting the rising seas.Therefore we have changed our mind-set from ‘ Fighting AGAINST the water’ into “Living WITH the water”.
