Tiger Woods has announced that his golf course design company has started work on a new project in Park City, Utah. The Marcella Club development has appointed TGR Design to design it an 18-hole private course on the elevated slopes of Jordanelle Ridge, with panoramic views of the Uinta Mountains, the Jordanelle Reservoir as well as the distant Mount Timpanogos.
The course will be the first mountain design for Tiger Woods, and anchor a high-end residential development to be known as Marcella at Jordanelle Ridge. Marcella’s nearby ski field residential subdivision features home sites ranging from USD $2.4 to $4.5 million.
The Tiger Woods Design (TGR Design) website includes the following description of the project:
The cornerstone of the Marcella Club will be the first mountain course design for Tiger and TGR Design. The course has been routed to take advantage of the incredible long-range vistas while also incorporating contrasting intimate valleys between the ridges to create a truly unique and memorable golf experience. The course will provide a stern test for low handicap golfers, yet also present a fun, family friendly experience to allow individuals of all skill levels to come together and enjoy the course.
The championship course will feature generous landing areas helping players to keep the ball in play while still challenging players with strategic choices and angles off the tee for the best opportunities to score. The greens will vary in size and contouring to reinforce the tee shot strategy, but with green surrounds mowed tight, players missing the green will be able to use their creativity to make interesting recoveries.
The partnership between Marcella Club and Tiger will be the premier golf experience in the Mountain West resulting in a championship course that will fully take advantage of the stunning Utah setting and be strategically designed to be playable for all.
Announcing the project on social media, Tiger Woods described his intent with the design, as being to “create a world-class golf experience to pair with Marcella Club’s vision for modern luxury living.”
In a press release to accompany the news Woods added, “I am fortunate with many design opportunities, but I’m extremely selective in which projects I take on.”
“Two key factors for me are being able to work with great partners on great properties. My team has built a superb relationship with our partners on Marcella."
"That said, I am thrilled about the location of this property. The canvas for my course is one of the most dramatic I’ve ever seen. It has ridgelines with some of the most stunning views in the world, valleys with amazing contours and topography, and groves of trees that allow me to use creativity to bring to life a golf experience that’s something special.”
