Ironwood, the Arnold Palmer golf community in the Eastern Districts of Grand Cayman, has received permission from the Cayman Islands Department of Planning to begin construction.
The project approval covers the first phase of construction, which includes land excavation and preparation for the 18-hole championship course, the nine-hole executive course and an interconnected lake system.
Submissions for buildings and infrastructure are in the last stages of development and slated to be made before the end of this summer, Ironwood said in a statement.
“We have been working diligently with the community, the National Trust, Government, and first rate local and international companies over the last several years to get this project off the ground and are delighted that the real work is about to begin,” said David Moffitt, Ironwood developer. “We are on the road to making the Ironwood dream a reality.”
Ironwood is a 600-acre, $1.1 billion commercial, tourism and residential community on the East End and North Side of Grand Cayman.
The community will include a town center with boutique shops, conveniences including a grocery store, a sports complex, an 18-hole Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course and practice campus, a nine-hole Palmer Family course and two vacation resorts.
