Tiger Woods announces he will pursue as a entrepreneur to start Tiger Woods Ventures. This company will include all of this duties as he has been in charge of designing courses, owning restaurants, his charity the foundation that supports children, and his support for PGA Tour events. Tiger Woods was already involved heavily with those functions and starting this venture company will help him pursue it more heavily. The Tiger Woods Foundation is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The Tiger Woods foundation was created in 1996 along with his father Earl Woods. The main focus of the foundation is to provide services to community based programs that improve education, health, and welfare for children in America. Woods has has help events at multiple tour events such as the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods Invitational, Genesis Open, Quicken Loans National, and Tiger Jam. Tiger Jam is a unique benefit concert event at Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Resort and Casino. The Hero World Challenge is based in the Bahamas with Bubba Watson defending. The Tiger Woods Invitational just ended last week at Pebble Beach and Monterey Peninsula Country Club. The Genesis Open will be played at Riveria in Pacific Palisades, taking over as the sponsor which was previously the Northern Trust Open. Lastly is the Quicken Loans National golf tournament, based in Potomac, Maryland. Congressional Country Club, was the main course that held the tournament in previous years.
Finally Tiger Woods Ventures will include his golf course design and his restaurant business as well. Tiger Woods is most recently known for his design of Bluejack National in Montgomery, Texas which opened in November 2016. Bluejack National is located on 755 acres throughout a community home to 400 residences and allows only 550 memberships. This community has a wellness spa, tennis courts, hiking, bowling alley, movie theaters, mini football field, “mini-fenway” park, and skate park. This is a great community for new families as it allows their children to do everything right near their home. Along with these amenities its home to a championship style golf course, along with design help from Mark O’Meara and David Feherty. The golf course has multiple tee boxes, along with Zoysia grass fairways without any rough. I think it’s a great design by Tiger Woods to not implement rough, as it allows all types of skill levels to play the course. As mentioned in previous posts the no rough design allows for lower maintenance fees, as golf courses require massive amounts of money. But knowing the designer of the course and its community, I don’t think money will ever be an issue. Finally “The Woods Jupiter” based in Jupiter, is home to many elegant dishes.
