Tiger Woods and Mike Trout have teamed up to build a private golf club in Vineland. Trout, a 10-time MLB All-Star was born in Vineland but lives in Millville, where he was a star athlete in high school. The LA Angels star is a fixture in the community.
Woods and his design company, TGR Design, will plan the 18-hole course. Scheduled to open in 2025, Trout National-The Reserve will also feature a practice range, short-game area, clubhouse, lodging and a wedding chapel.
“I’ve always enjoyed watching Mike on the diamond so when the opportunity arose to work with him on Trout National-The Reserve, I couldn’t pass it up,” Woods said in a media release. “It’s a great site for golf and our team’s looking forward to creating a special course.”
Trout added: “I could put down roots anywhere in the country, but Jessica and I make South Jersey our offseason home and always cherish the time we get to spend there. I love South Jersey and I love golf, so creating Trout National-The Reserve is a dream come true. And then to add to that we’ll have a golf course designed by Tiger? It’s just incredible to think that this project has grown to where we’re going to be working with someone many consider the greatest and most influential golfer of all time.”
