Melbourne, Sept 23 (ANI): Soon golfers from around the globe will delve into the luxury of playing 18 holes on a floating island that overlooks coral reefs and is connected by underwater tunnels.
A Dutch company has announced its plan to build a 500 million dollar floating golf course in the Maldives.
Dutch Docklands, who is handling the project, claim that it will be a "scarless development, which has zero footprint on the Maldives region".
The proposed course will be made up of several islands floating in the Indian Ocean, which will contain two or three holes each.
The floating islands will be further linked to a series of hotels by more underwater tunnels, which will overlook the golf course and surrounding coral reefs, reports News.com.au.
Taking environment friendliness into consideration, the project will be powered by solar energy with sustainable desalination and water-cooling techniques, and will work in co-operation with the Maldives' rising sea levels.
Due for completion in 2015, the course will be strategically located at a distance of five minutes from the airport to attract stopover golfers. (ANI)
