MLB’s Mike Trout Announces Tiger Woods-Designed Golf Course In New Jersey


MLB star Mike Trout and billionaire golf legend Tiger Woods are linking up to bring a golf course to Trout’s hometown of Vineland, New Jersey, bringing together two of the highest-paid and most influential athletes in the world.

Key Facts

“Trout National – The Reserve” is scheduled to open in 2025, Trout announced, built on the site of an old sand mine.

The private club will feature an 18-hole golf course designed by Woods along with amenities that differentiate it from your “grandparents’ country club,” Trout said.

The duo have some of the deepest pockets of any athlete; Woods and Trout’s $68 million and $49.5 million respective 2022 earnings were good for 14th and 23rd on Forbes’ list of the highest-paid athletes in the world.

Key Background

Trout’s $427 million contract is the largest in baseball history, while Woods’ $121 million in prize money is by far the most in PGA Tour history. Woods’ $1.7 billion in career earnings on and off the course helped him become one of two active athletes to be named a billionaire by Forbes. Trout’s club will be the tenth nine or 18-hole course designed by Woods’ firm, as the 47-year-old takes a page out of his predecessors Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer and expands his legacy in the sport as his playing days wind down.

What To Watch For

Trout will begin his 13th MLB season Thursday when his Los Angeles Angels take on the Oakland Athletics as Trout, widely considered to be one of the best players in modern history, looks for his first ever postseason win. Meanwhile, Woods is expected to tee off next week at the Masters, looking to improve upon his 47th-place finish last year.
