Homes are selling quickly at Tiger Woods’ luxury golf resort northwest of Houston.

Although the first homes have yet to open, 43 home sites have been pre-sold at Bluejack National, a new residential community anchored by the first championship golf course designed by Tiger Woods to open in the U.S.

Tipler Design and Build LLC is under construction on the first 10 of some 147 resort homes planned for Bluejack National. The Houston luxury homebuilder will offer a mix of member suites, cottages and patio homes around the golf course at the 755-acre development, located at 4430 S. FM 1486 in Montgomery County.

“Sales have been great,” said Casey Paulson, president of Bluejack National. “We only have one golf course slot left, although we’ll have more in phase two. We’ll have people living here in not too long.”

Bluejack National developers Beacon Land Development and Lantern Asset Management, both based in Dallas, partnered with Tipler to build to the resort homes.

The rustic homes, which were designed by Montana-based Nick Fullerton Architects, will feature smart home amenities and range in size from 1,200 to 3,300 square feet and in price from the mid-$400,000s to nearly $1.5 million.

In addition to the 10 resort homes already under construction, about 20 to 25 more homes are expected to break ground within the next two months, Paulson said.

Bluejack National also will offer 234 estate lots for custom homes for owners to select from six Houston-area custom home builders. The first custom lots are expected to begin construction soon, Paulson said.

The resort and custom homes will cater to Houstonians and out-of-towners looking for a vacation home, golf retreat and family fun for the weekends and holidays, Paulson said. Most of the buyers so far are from Houston — particularly within the 610 Loop — but there are buyers from as far away as Chicago and Milwaukee looking to snowbird in Houston.

Bluejack National hopes to attract both serious golfers and their families to the resort community. While golfers can enjoy Tiger Woods’ 18-hole championship golf course, their non-golfing family members and children can enjoy the resort’s amenities, which will include a movie theater, zip line and a fish camp.Developers held a soft opening for the first seven holes at Bluejack National in November.

“We’re very pleased and happy to see how far we’ve come in 18 months,” Paulson said. “I think people still want to buy a great quality, high-end experience. You can drive out here in under an hour and be in the middle of the country.”
