Less than an hour from Houston’s tangle of downtown congestion, the gates of Bluejack National open to 767 acres of relaxed luxury living. This private, resort-style community and club offers unmatched opportunities for upscale living in the rolling hills of Montgomery. From meticulously designed residences to the country’s only private, Tiger Woods-designed golf course, to pampering at the adult spa and recreational activities for all ages, no lifestyle amenity has been overlooked at Bluejack National.
Residents say life feels different at Bluejack, according to Brett Schoenfield, club president and general manager. Some say it’s the community’s slower pace. Others point to a haven where kids can explore and play outside. For many, the difference is Bluejack’s variety of opportunities for shared experiences with family, friends and neighbors, whether as a homeowner or visiting club member.
Schoenfield shared the top three reasons he believes the community is experiencing record growth.
1. Deep sense of community
“Bluejack National’s appeal is the deep sense of community it delivers for residents and members. People are connected with likeminded families and individuals who share the same value propositions,” Schoenfield said. “It’s a unique place where families, retirees and titans of industry can find respite from everyday life.”
2. Resort-style amenities for all ages in laid-back luxury
Another key difference is Bluejack’s residential resort lifestyle, dressed in a low-key club vibe. This is not the country club of lore. Bluejack is a non-tipping club that does not operate by committee. “Bluejack is a stress-free environment where people can come as they are. This is not a stuffy club,” Schoenfield said, adding it’s not unusual to see members on the golf course wearing flipflops.
Resort-style amenities are woven into daily living at Bluejack.
Since 2016, the Bluejack National golf course has been attracting acclaim as the top private golf course in Texas. It’s the only private course designed by Tiger Woods. With 18 holes, it’s considered challenging, yet accessible for all levels with each hole offering multiple tee boxes.
A second option for golf is The Playgrounds, a 10-hole course also designed by Woods. It was developed for unstructured play and is a favorite for short-game practice or friendly rounds with kids. Other golf amenities and services include a TaylorMade Golf Performance Center, 18-hole putting course, driving range and PGA pro instruction.
The Fort is Bluejack’s award-winning gold standard for family fun. Outdoors, The Fort features two swimming pools, a 150-foot water slide, water park, football field and mini Fenway Park-style wiffle ball field, sports courts, fire pits, and a lake for canoeing and fishing. Indoor amenities include bowling lanes, arts and crafts room, video games, locker rooms and casual dining. The Fort received the Amenity of the Year award from Golf Inc. in 2019.
Scheduled to open in 2023, The Sanctuary, which is framed by pine groves, is a state-of-the-art spa and wellness center for adults. Full-service amenities include massage and body treatments, a fully equipped fitness center with personal training, heated lap pool, men’s and women’s locker rooms and lounges, barber, nail salon and health-minded food and beverage service.
Residents and members can also enjoy many outdoor activities at their leisure. Approximately seven miles of trails connect hikers, runners and bikers with Bluejack’s neighborhoods. Blake Fishing Dock and Bluejack’s 35 acres of fishing lakes tease anglers with trophy bass, bluegill, catfish and other native species.
3. Stunning custom designed homes
Bluejack National’s reputation as a premier residential community continues to grow at a rapid pace. The development offers a complete portfolio of homeownership opportunities and fully integrated professional design build services.
Located adjacent to the spa and wellness center, homes in The Retreats exude a nod to refuge with two bedrooms and 2,105 square feet of living space. The Lake Villas enclave is walking distance from two lakes and honors Bluejack’s natural surroundings. Homes feature four bedrooms and over 3,000 square feet of living space. The Sunday Homes neighborhood features four- and five-bedroom golf course residences along the 10th hole and Bluejack Creek. Starting prices for homes in The Retreats, Lake Villas and Sunday Homes neighborhoods range from $1,125,000 to $1,950,000.
“Bluejack National is more than a place to call home. It’s a state-of-being,” Schoenfield said.
