A golf course designed by legendary golfer Tiger Woods would anchor a massive development proposed 30 miles south of Nashville, in Williamson County.
Dallas-based Beacon Land Development, a company created last year, is planning a project on roughly 1,200 acres that are in the process of being annexed into the town of Thompson’s Station.
Much of the land for the development would come from Gary Baker, a longtime area businessman who was heavily involved in racing. Baker once owned and operated Bristol Motor Speedway and Nashville’s Fairgrounds Speedway, and co-owned a racing team with music executive Mike Curb.
On its website, Beacon Land Development says the project would feature a golf course designed by Tiger Woods Design, as well as custom homes, a music venue and other features.
Woods, who has won the second-most major championships in professional golf, is working with Beacon Land Development on a similar private golf club and community northwest of Houston.
“We’re very excited about it,” said Joe Cosentini, town administrator for Thompson’s Station. He noted that the town just this month adopted a “massive rewrite” of its land-use policies to emphasize the preservation of open space.
Of the 1,200 acres involved in the proposed project, 850 will be open space, including the golf course, Cosentini said.
Construction could begin in March or April, provided the project receives all necessary town approvals, Cosentini said.Read Also: Concern Over State Golf Championship Course
