Tiger Woods’ New Golf Course Will Include Miniature Fenway Park, Tree Houses
Tiger Woods is transitioning from PGA playing great to golf course architect, because what we need in this nation right now are more golf courses. That's fine I guess, but just stay out of California -- unless you like crunchy brown grass.
So welcome to Bluejack National, located in Houston, which is the first course that Tiger has designed on U.S. soil.
Bluejack National also features a 10-hole practice course, with holes ranging from 35 to 110 yards. That ought to appeal to kids, but it will have competition. A miniature Fenway Park is being built for Wiffle ball games. Renowned skateboarder Eric Koston is designing a skate park. There is a zip line. And tree houses in which to spend nights.
“The concept of the whole club and what they’re doing is truly special,” Stockton said. “It has a great relaxed feel being there, a family feel, where there’s something for everyone.”
It's an amusement park where there's a good chance you'll be killed by a golf ball, is what it is.
By the way, the course is partially completed (7 holes), and the first person to play it was ... George W. Bush.
Be we got to speculating: if there will be treehouses, a skate park and a zip line, there must be other features that were considered and then rejected. Here's our best guess on what those would have been:
Rejected Tiger Woods Golf Course Features
-- Rope swing next to water hazard on No. 6.
