Tiger Woods is the name that instantly draws people to Bluejack National. This wooded wonderland just north of Houston in Montgomery is the only Tiger Woods-designed golf course in America.
In truth, that probably would have been more than enough to sell a boatload of memberships and plenty of houses. The drawing power of Tiger Woods is undeniable.
Only the visionaries behind Bluejack National wanted something more. They wanted to create one of the best golf communities in the world. Yes, Bluejack National could have just lived off its Tiger Woods aura. But it’s much more than that.
Bluejack is a place where parents get quality time with their kids in a unique environment (one where they’ll almost volunteer to put down their screens). It’s a land of architecturally interesting houses rather than anything cookie cutter or golf course home standard. It’s a place with more amenities than most five star resorts. It’s a place where nature reigns — one where you can lose yourself in 35 acres of fishing lakes and seven miles of hiking, biking and running trails.

Bluejack National is seeing a shift in buyers as the extension of Texas 249 toward College Station eases access to the resort destination 50 miles northwest of downtown Houston.

The 755-acre community and club off FM 1486 Road in Montgomery has traditionally drawn second-home buyers looking for a retreat close to Houston that feels much farther away with its rolling terrain and luxe lifestyle amenities. It’s home to the nation’s only Tiger Woods-designed golf course, and this year the resort added The Fort, a place for crafts, pickleball, bowling, baseball, football, canoeing, shuffleboard, eating and drinking, and swimming. There’s also a lighted short course for nighttime golf. The atmosphere is laid-back, so golfing while barefoot is perfectly acceptable.

New lots for custom homes will soon be available at Bluejack National, the resort-style residential community surrounding a golf course designed by Tiger Woods 50 miles north of downtown Houston.
Gary Short, director of sales, said the company will release three variations with golf views and some with lake views and privacy lots that back up to a private reserve, stream or greenbelt, not another neighbor. Prices for lots begin in the mid-$200,000s for privacy lots, the high-$300,000s for water view lots and the $700,000s for a golf view lot. So far, between 60 to 65 custom home lots have been sold to date.
In March, the community announced it had sold out of its two-bedroom member suite homes faster than anticipated. Short attributed that spike in interest to both the Highway 249 toll road expansion that’s made part of Montgomery County more accessible and to community amenities.
In September 2017, Short told HBJ despite high interest for homes at Bluejack National, some buyers had been waiting for more amenities beyond the championship-style golf course.
Homes on custom lots have to be a minimum of 3,000 square feet, Short said. He estimates a house built on a custom lot will start around $1 million, but that can vary depending on what is built. Custom builders include Tipler Design & Build LLC, a Woodlands-based custom luxury homebuilder, Jeff Paul Custom Homes, Morning Star Builders, Dream Works Properties, K&C Classic Homes and Stillwater.
In total, the resort-style community will have about 400 homes when complete, including member suites, cottage homes, Sunday homes and custom homes. While residential options such as the member suites or Sunday homes are used mainly as a second residence, those building on custom lots are typically families looking to settle in the area, Short said.
