SINGAPORE (Sept 3): On Sept 1, the Legacy Golf Course, designed by golfing legend Jack Nicklaus, will be the first of three 18-hole courses to open in the sprawling 2000-acre Forest City Golf Resort.

The project includes a high-tech industrial zone, CBD, condominiums and coastal villas, and is replete with plastic seals on man-made beaches.

The success of the whole US$100 billion ($137 billion) development now hangs in the balance.
