Beacon Land Development Partner and Bluejack National Developer Casey Paulson was a guest last Saturday on the nationally syndicated Charlie Epps Golf Hour. Casey spoke at length with Charlie about the excitement surrounding Bluejack National’s progress, including the recent visit by Tiger Woods to review the work being done on the golf facilities.
Casey noted how passionately Tiger has been engaged in the course development and design and his excitement over the opportunity to create a golf course with such spectacular natural terrain. In addition to golf, the pair discussed at length Bluejack National’s overall development philosophy and its planned amenities that are destined to make Bluejack National a landmark for sophisticated families as well as golfers.
Having played the former Blaketree National golf course, Charlie Epps concurred that the site is offers an exceptional environment for golf as well as other high-end lifestyle pursuits and expressed his desire to visit Bluejack National once it is completed.

Bluejack National, an exceptional community and championship golf course in Montgomery, Texas, currently under development, has recently registered as a member of the Audubon International Classic Program becoming the first and only Classic Program member in the state of Texas.
Created over nine years ago, the Classic Program was designed for projects involved in changes on their property. “Through this program we work with landowners as they go through construction and then assist in establishing a maintenance program that focuses on natural resource management,” says Nancy Richardson, Classic Program Director.
“Environmental sustainability is a priority to everyone connected to the Bluejack National property,” said Eric Bauer, Director of Agronomy, Bluejack National. “We are all stewards of the environment, so being the first Audubon International Classic Program member in Texas is a proud first step in our partnership to preserve the legacy of the land.”
Besides Bluejack National, currently there are 13 Classic Program members in five countries (Canada, Singapore, China, Indonesia, and Bahamas,) and four states in the United States (Florida, Tennessee, Washington, and New York). Five members are certified in Indonesia, China (2), Florida, and Tennessee.
Based on the environmental framework provided by Audubon International, Classic Program members design and then implement a Classic Program Management Plan (CPMP) for the property by addressing the following issues: Wildlife Conservation and Habitat Enhancement, Water Quality Monitoring and Management, Integrated Pest Management, Water Conservation, Energy Efficiency, and Waste Management. The designation of Certified Classic Sanctuary is contingent upon the quality and completeness of the NRMP and its implementation keeping in mind that the property is an already disturbed land area.
Audubon International looks forward to working with Bluejack toward Classic Program certification.
Tiger Woods made a recent visit to Bluejack National in Montgomery, Texas to survey the progress of the golf facilities his company, Tiger Woods Design, is creating for the private club near Houston. These golf facilities include a spectacular 18-hole golf course as well as “The Playgrounds,” a one-of-a-kind golf experience ideal for serious short-game practice or fun outings with friends and family.
“Bluejack is a special place,” said Tiger. “The movement of the land through the magnificent forest is a terrific foundation for the course. I’m very pleased with where we are right now, and looking forward to the finished product.”
In many ways, Bluejack National reflects Tiger’s imagination and passion for the game. Golf Digest posted a brief story on Tiger’s visit which you can read here.
