Tiger Woods might not be playing golf right now on the PGA Tour, but he is sure keeping himself busy with golf off the course.

According to a report on golf.com, Woods has been selected to redesign a golf course in Beijing, China. The course will become a flagship in a group of a dozen or so private clubs that will provide members access to all the courses in that group.

This will be Tiger's first foray into the Asian market, and the report goes on to say that the deal is a lucrative one, paying him almost $17 million for the two-course deal.

Woods will redesign the Beijing Tain'an Holiday Golf Club, a 27-hole facility just outside the capital. When it re-opens, it will be called Pacific Links National Golf Club. Pacific Links International, a Canada-based company bought the course and is bringing Woods on to design what will become the anchor course in the "Pacific Links' 27 Club". That "club" will feature a collection of 12 courses in the Beijing and nearby Taijan regions desinged by some of the best course designers in the game, including fellow Jupiter Island resident Greg Norman, Pete Dye, and Ernie Els.

While nobody in the Woods camp is commenting on the project, a statement provided to golf.com by Pacific Links quotes Woods as saying, "We strongly believe this course will stand the test of time and be one of the most prestigious courses in China, and even Asia."

This course will mark Tiger's third as an architect. In December, Woods opened up El Cardonal at Diamante in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. His first U.S. based course, Bluejack National just outside of Houston, is scheduled to open in the fall.
