09/03/2011 - Tiger Woods new US$60 million property with golf course

Tiger Woods, the former golf world number one, has revealed that he is moving to a new home on Jupiter Island in Florida, USA.

The golfer’s new mansion, which overlooks the Atlantic Ocean, is worth a reported US$60 million and comes complete with a running track and a four-hole golf course.

Tiger Woods, whose marriage to former swimwear model Elin Nordegren ended in divorce last year, posted photos on his blog, saying “I'm excited about it and even more excited about my new practice facility. It's phenomenal."

Woods and Nordegren bought the land for the property in 2006 and spent years planning every detail of the ten thousand square foot property on the exclusive Jupiter Island.

However, after Woods admitted to cheating on his wife in a string of affairs, Nordegren filed for divorce. The settlement eventually cost the golfer a reported U$100 million.

When Tiger Woods ultimately took control of planning the property himself, he designed the mansion to be the ultimate bachelor pad.

According to the architectural plans, the property boasts huge windows to maximise the sea view, a glass fronted lift, four en-suite bedrooms, a wine cellar, what looks like a home cinema and a games area for his children.

If that wasn’t enough, an additional four buildings adjoin the main house which include; a boathouse, a golf training studio, a gym, a detached garage and a large guesthouse.

Outdoor facilities include; a tennis court, a diving pool, a lap lane, a one hundred metre running track and a 3.5 acre golf course.

In another entry on his blog Woods wrote; “Working with my team, I designed the short-game [golf] facility and oversaw its construction. It features four greens, six bunkers with different depths and kinds of sand, a video centre and a putting studio. If no wind is blowing, the longest club I can hit is a 7-iron. It's also set up so I can hit shots out of my second-storey studio.”

At the moment Woods needs all the help he can get with his game; not having won a tournament since returning to professional golf after a five month break to work on his swing with coach Sean Foley.

Woods will have a chance to end his recent trophy drought at the World Golf Championships being held at Dural this week.
