TGR Design celebrates 10 years of making courses fun for all
Designing for golf’s most exacting player – TGR Design’s first completed project can be found at Tiger’s home in Jupiter, Florida. Designing for his own incredibly high standards, the 3.5-acre practice facility replicates authentic on-course situations. The facility has tournament-conditioned turf and bunkering to recreate and adjust to the look, feel and playability of various tournament courses. In keeping with Tiger’s lifestyle, there is a flat area in the middle of the practice facility that serves as the primary spot for soccer practice and playing games with his kids.
Grand opening of El Cardonal at Diamante – In December 2014, Tiger and TGR Design celebrated the completion of its first golf course. Tiger hit an inaugural tee shot with a Mariachi band leading the celebration. The design was inspired by the classic Golden Age courses of the West Coast that Tiger played growing up. It’s a course that brings back strategy, with several options to navigate each hole that reward solid strategic decisions.
The Playgrounds – In March 2016, TGR Design’s first short course opened. The inviting short course is quickly becoming a hallmark of TGR Design’s philosophy of fun, approachable golf. This 10-hole par-3 course provides a unique, unstructured golf experience ideal for casual fun with friends and family or for high-quality short game practice. Demonstrating The Playgrounds accessibility and fun, 11-year-old Taylor Crozier hit a hole-in-one during the grand-opening celebration.
Bluejack National – From the first time Tiger visited the Bluejack National site, he knew the property was going to be special. And he was right. TGR Design’s first American course has quickly earned a mighty reputation in its first year. Named “Best New Private Golf Course” by both Golf Magazine/Sports Illustrated and Golf Digest, the gentle, rolling land features a classic course designed for fun, playable rounds. With no rough, the firm and fast course places a premium on ball position and strategic angles to the green.
