Coming Soon: $500 Million Floating Golf Course
Plans are currently underway to bring a floating golf course to the islands of Maldives, located 250 miles off the southwest coast of India. The course will consist of a series of floating platforms that contain two to three holes each, built by world-renowned floating technology company Dutch Docklands.
Each platform will be connected to one another and surrounding hotels by clear underwater tunnels, similar to those you'd find at an aquarium.
The $500 million floating golf course is set to be completed in 2015 with the goal of bringing a wealth of ecological tourism and investment to the Maldives.
The course designer has not yet been named, but final candidates include Jacques Cousteau, Donald Trump, and the guys from Deadliest Catch.
