Beacon Land Development has announced that construction has begun on the Tiger Woods Design golf facilities at its Bluejack National private club and community under development outside of Houston in Montgomery, Texas.
The work is being performed by Medalist Golf, Inc., one of the nation’s leading golf course construction companies. Past work by Medalist Golf Inc has included Reynolds Plantation in Georgia, Southern Hills Country Club in Oklahoma and Secession Golf Club in South Carolina among many others. Clearing and grading for the practice facilities and The Playgrounds, a one-of-a-kind short-course golf experience, and the front nine of the Tiger Woods Design championship course has begun. Plans call for the practice facilities and The Playgrounds to open to members and their guests by the spring of 2015. Bluejack National’s championship course could open as early as fall of 2015.
“We have a tremendous team comprised of some of the most skilled professionals in the golf industry,” said Casey Paulson, partner in Beacon Land Development, developers of Bluejack National. “With its water, trees and natural movement, this is one of the most perfect pieces of property for golf in all of Texas. After all these months of careful planning, watching it begin to come together is truly exciting.”
Comprised of 755 acres of gently rolling and beautifully wooded countryside dotted with natural lakes and streams, Bluejack National will offer nearly 400 private residences with options ranging from member suites to cottages, Sunday homes and estate home sites. Larger lots also will be available providing ideal facilities for retreats, outings, conferences and entertaining.
Bluejack National’s golf facilities will include a spectacular 18-hole golf course crafted by Tiger Woods Design. Woods also will create “The Playgrounds,” a one-of-a-kind golf experience ideal for serious short-game practice or fun outings with friends and family. Adjacent to The Playgrounds will be The Porch, an inviting hangout for players before or after their rounds. The Porch will provide casual fare in a relaxed, elegant setting.
In addition to golf, the club’s thoughtfully selected amenities will accentuate the beauty of the topography and further enhance the lives of residents and members by cultivating unique opportunities for outdoor recreation and adventure. These will include: “The Fort” – featuring, a bowling alley, movie theater, game room, pottery room and a classic American “burger joint;” as well as zip lines; a ropes course; archery range; sport courts and additional outdoor fun. The Blake Fishing Dock will provide everything members need to enjoy catching bass and other game fish from the club’s private, stocked fishing ponds. The club also will offer numerous dining options ranging from casual club fare and comfort foods to exceptional fine cuisine; and signature surprises such as a fresh fruit stand, gourmet coffee shop and more.
“Our goal is to create an environment unlike any other where families and friends can reconnect, enjoy their time together and create lasting memories and traditions they’ll cherish for years to come,” said Paulson. “Michael and I have years of experience developing and executing these types of experiences at some of the world’s most celebrated private clubs and resorts. At Bluejack National, we have the opportunity to build upon all of that know-how to deliver a lifestyle unlike any other to our members.”
In fact, Abbott and Paulson have a combined 50 years of experience in the private club and luxury resort industries. They built their reputations by creating new paradigms for service, member experience and lifestyle. Among the properties with which they have been affiliated are some of North America’s most distinguished private clubs and resorts, including: Vaquero Club and Four Seasons Resort and Club, Las Colinas in Texas; Hideaway and Madison Club in California; Kukio and Four Seasons Hualalai in Hawaii; and El Dorado Golf & Beach Club and Diamante in Mexico.
