Water hazard: Floating golf course being planned off shores of the Maldives

Dutch developers are giving a new meaning to the term "water hazard."

Three corporations -- Waterstudio.NL, Dutch Docklands and Troon Golf -- will be building the world's first floating golf course in the Maldives -- a small group of islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean, according to Business Insider.

Underwater tunnels will connect the 18 holes and facilities together, while allowing golfers to experience the reef. Luxurious accommodations overlook the fairways and the surrounding reef. The course itself will be built on floating platforms, making it the world's first floating golf course.

Let them know how you feel about them destroying some of the most beautiful reef systems in the world. (Please be respectful in all communications.)
