The Tiger Woods Golf Course, now known as Damac Hills 2, has been transformed into a vast sports, fitness, and water-themed park to meet the needs of over 10,000 residential units. The conversion presented the challenge of creating multiple facilities within the former golf course space.
The park features a Sports Town area that includes football pitches, a standard-sized cricket pitch with net practice facilities, padel courts, and courts for tennis, volleyball, and basketball. Open and shaded fitness gym equipment facilities are distributed across multiple locations, along with a 3 km long jogging track and pedestrian circulation facilities.
In addition, the Water Town section offers a gated Malibu-themed water park with exciting features such as a wave pool spanning 2500 m2, water slides, a 500 m long lazy river with four turbine stations, splash pads, a typhoon surf pool of 650 m2, DJ Cabanas, and both VIP and public Cabanas. The water park also includes a water-filtered boating lake with beach access, paddle boating decks, and a floating cinema, all surrounded by lush green landscapes. The park incorporates a downtown area with multiple shaded pocket parks at six locations, equipped with kids’ play equipment, barbecue facilities, and seating areas. Additional features include an amphitheater, chess, snake & ladder, and maze facilities located throughout the park.
To ensure comprehensive supervision, the ICON team oversaw more than 10 contractors involved in the project. The team continues to provide supervision throughout the Defects Liability Period until the end of 2023, ensuring the highest quality standards are met to achieve utmost client satisfaction.
