Tiger Woods to design Bluejack National

May 1, 2014

To date, Tiger Woods has won 79 PGA Tour events, but only two of them have come in the state of Texas. The folks who hired him -- no doubt at a hefty fee -- to design their new course outside Houston hope he produces another win.

As has been announced on his web site, Tiger Woods will design Bluejack National, an 18-hole private course near Houston that will be set among "755 acres of rolling hills and beautifully wooded countryside, Bluejack National provides the perfect setting for a truly unique golf experience in the Texas market."

Bluejack National will be Woods' second course design project in the United States. The Cliffs at High Carolina in Asheville was his first.

Woods' web site goes on to describe the project thusly: "Bluejack National's gentle topography is covered with mixed forests of mature pines and stately hardwoods. Tiger is using this spectacular setting to create a classic golf course with limitless variety and shot-making opportunities. With no rough, Bluejack National will present players with very wide fairways, but the course design and fast-playing conditions will put a premium on ball position and strategic angles to the greens. The green surrounds are designed to be mowed tight, promoting creativity and playability. A number of natural lakes and streams that dot the property will be utilized in the design, contributing to the memorable golf experience."

No rough? Wide fairways? Fast-playing conditions? Tight areas around greens? Hmm, call us crazy but that sounds an awful lot like one famous course in Georgia where Woods has experienced storied success.
