The Cliffs at High Carolina, a 550-acre tract in Asheville, North Carolina, was slated to become the golf legend’s first foray into solo course design in 2007. However, the project stalled in 2010 due to the recession and permitting issues.
The Cliffs at High Carolina is now being marketed as a potential development site for luxury homes, with real estate experts claiming it could fetch as much as $19 million. The property offers stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and includes several potential course layouts, all routed by Woods himself.
“It’s a very special piece of property,” said David DeConinck, a golf course broker who is marketing the listing. “It’s got incredible topography, amazing views, and it’s got Tiger Woods’ name on it. That’s a pretty powerful combination.”
DeConinck said there has already been interest from developers from around the country, and he expects the property to sell quickly.
“I think it’s going to be a very attractive property to someone,” he said. “It’s got the potential to be something truly special.”
It is unclear what Woods’ plans are for his solo course design debut. The 15-time major champion has designed several courses in collaboration with other architects, but he has yet to take the lead on a project from start to finish.
The Cliffs at High Carolina is a unique property that would be a fitting setting for Woods’ first solo course design. The rolling hills, stunning views, and challenging terrain would provide the perfect canvas for Woods to showcase his design skills.
It is a shame that the original course design project fell through, but the property is still an incredible piece of land with a lot of potential. With Tiger Woods’ name attached to it, there is no doubt that the Cliffs at High Carolina will find a new buyer and eventually be developed into something special.
