ABSTRACT
The article discusses the challenges facing the golf course design business of golfer Tiger Woods. The plan, which came into force in 2007, was to design Woods' first U.S. golf course on a high plateau in the Blue Ridge Mountains outside Asheville, North Carolina. Since then, Woods life has seen lots of ups and downs and even his financial status has undergone a major change. The real estate meltdown, an oversaturated golf course market and bankers' reluctance have added to Woods woes.
