Tiger Woods to design Houston-area golf course

Tiger Woods' design portfolio is beefing up once again, this time with a course in the Houston area.

Woods will be designing an 18-hole course in the recently announced Bluejack National community northwest of Houston. The community will occupy the space on which Blaketree National Golf Club once sat. Membership will be by invitation only.

“Bluejack National has one of the best natural settings for golf I have seen,” Woods said in a statement. “With its changes in elevation, the beautiful pines and hardwoods, Bluejack National is reminiscent of the pinelands of Georgia and the Carolinas. The opportunity is here to create a golf course unlike any other in the Houston area, and our goal is for it to be among the best in the nation.”

Construction of the course will begin in the summer, with it opening in the fall of 2015. A "short course" will also be developed.

The 755-acre property will feature corporate and short-term housing, full-sized houses for full-time residents and member-specific housing options. Among the other amenities will be an archery range, zip lines and a fishing dock atop stocked ponds.

Beacon Land Development is behind the project, which also developed the Diamante resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where another Woods design is in the latter stages of construction.
