The new Tiger Woods-designed Bluejack National course in Houston, Texas got a “helluva” trial run recently.
Former president George W. Bush and instructor Dave Stockton Jr. tested the course, Woods’ first in the United States, last week.
Stockton told Golf Digest that the course is reminiscent of another of Woods’ more famous haunts.
“It did have the feel of Augusta National with the pine trees and elevation changes and the slopes,” Stockton said. “There were a limited number of bunkers and it’s not crazy with the bunkers around the greens. It’s really impressive. There is a relaxed feel. If you want to wear jeans, fine. You want to wear your shirt untucked, fine.”
The course is not yet fully complete. A kid-sized version of Fenway Park to accommodate wiffle ball games is currently under construction. Other fun attractions include a zip line, skate park and tree houses.
