The world’s first floating golf course is set to be a reality by the companies Waterstudio.NL, Dutch Docklands and Troon Golf. The luxurious golfers' paradise, which will be built in the Maldives, will also be eco-friendly and run on solar power. Visitors will have the chance to stay in a luxury hotel that boasts incredible ocean views. They'll also be able to walk through some amazing underwater tunnels that lead out to the links.

The floating golf course will have 18 holes and use special technology such as water cooling, water desalination and floating solar blanket fields. This exciting new project is estimated to cost around $500 million. Once it's complete, I'm sure that there will be many golfers who want to experience tee time on this course!
