Donald Trump will open a golf course in the desert outskirts of Dubai, extending his golfing empire to the Middle East, in the latest sign the emirate's crisis-hit property market is recovering.

The Associated Press reported the Trump International Golf Club will be the centerpiece of a 28 million foot project being developed by DAMAC Properties that includes a luxury residential community, hotels, spa and international schools.

It is being developed on land purchased from Dubailand, a much-hyped project that included a $1 billion Tiger Woods golfing estate. Woods' golf project was shelved due to the economic downturn.

The Trump Organization has 14 award-winning golf courses under its ownership and management across the world, but this will be its first venture into Asia. It did not say who would design the 7,205-yard, par-71 golf course in Dubai.

Trump takes a personal hand in developing his courses, including any local politics that may affect them. He's currently fighting a wind energy project which he believes may mar the view from his luxury golf resort in Scotland.

Britain’s Advertising Standards Agency recently ruled that Trump’s anti-wind farm advertising should be withdrawn in its current form.

The independent advertising regulator said the ad from Trump International Gold Club Scotland is misleading and cannot be substantiated.

The ad warns that wind farms would hurt Scottish tourism and mar Scotland’s beauty. It features a photograph of a wind farm development overlooking a crowded highway in California.

The standards agency said the Trump resort had been told not to make claims that could not be proven and not to use “misleading imagery.”
