The world’s most famous professional golfer will add his touch to the golf landscape in the Beehive State.
Tiger Woods announced Tuesday that he will design a new, 18-hole professional course at the upcoming members-only Marcella Club in Heber City. Marcella Club is a partnership between the yet-to-be-built communities of Marcella Mountain and Marcella at Jordanelle Ridge.
The new course will be Woods’ first in Utah through his company TGR Design.
“Utah is an incredible place, with favorable year-round weather that offers opportunities to be active outdoors throughout all four seasons – golfing, skiing, biking, hiking, and fishing – the list goes on and on,” Woods said in a news release. “I’m thrilled to be designing a course in such a special location; this new course is uniquely beautiful and will offer engaging play for every ability.”
A rendering of the proposed new course can be found here. At more than 8,000 yards, it will be one of the longest in Utah. It will also be one of two new 18-hole courses that will be built at Marcella at Jordanelle Ridge.
“I am thrilled about the location of this property,” Woods said in a release. “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.”
