Now that the Tiger Woods house is completed on Jupiter Island, we have a first glimpse of the backyard and practice complex. (photo below) Jupiter Island is a far different environ than the well known and more crowded North Palm Beach real estate. Homes are sparser, secluded and therefore much higher priced.
It appears he has one tee box in the southeast east corner to hit drivers. The entire area just west of the lap pool can be used to hit long, medium and short irons into any of the 4 greens. Each green is guarded by a single trap, except the green in the northwest corner which appears to have 3 pot bunkers.
Tiger has enough open space to practice his short game from any angle, any wind condition, which really appears what this practice area is all about.
His putting green is totally surrounded by dense vegetation. One wonders if he is trying to block out the wind by doing this or if he is cutting off both sunlight and air circulation. He probably has a sub-air temperature/humidity control system beneath the green, otherwise it would be worthless in the heat of the summer, especially if the grass there is bent or some northern grass.
I’m curious as to what type of grass he planted, both on the putting green and throughout his practice area. The denser Florida or tropical grasses react quite differently with the club head and ball, and Tiger may find he is switching grasses a number of times until he finds the right mix.
I would have thought he’d have 2 putting greens, each with different grasses.
Another curious thing I found is the placement of this particular Jupiter Island home so far back from the intracoastal. Usually, homeowners want to be very close to the water, but I believe Tiger wanted his practice area close to the water, so he reversed the norm, creating another unique signature estate among the Juptier Island homes.
