Maybe Tiger Woods already has a plan for his life after golf — he’ll be a restaurateur. His new eatery, The Woods Jupiter, is slated to open in mid August at Harbourside Place in Jupiter, Florida. Since his split with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, and his struggles on the PGA tour, Tiger Woods seems to have more time on his hands.
The Inquisitr reported that it will be considered a sports and dining club, located in downtown Jupiter in an entertainment complex.
Tiger Woods calls Jupiter, Florida, home, and so he wanted a place where he could hang out.
“I envision a place where people can meet friends, watch sports on TV and enjoy a great meal,” Woods said in a statement. “I wanted to build it locally where I live and where it could help support the community.”
Developer Nick Mastroianni II told the Palm Beach Post that the restaurant will have outdoor dining and a valet roundabout.
“I couldn’t be more excited to have Tiger’s new establishment operating within Harbourside Place,” said Mastroianni, president and CEO of Allied Capital & Development of South Florida. “It’s gratifying to see the final stages met with support from local, national and international organizations such as Mr. Woods.”

This week, a temporary liquor license was issued pending the final inspection. There were two violations found on the first inspection, and reports say both have been fixed. The 8,000 square foot restaurant was originally slated to open in January, then April, and now mid August seems firm. The restaurant will serve high-end American fare, but for now, the menu is under wraps.
Currently, Tiger Woods seems to be hiring, as there is a sign posted on the door of the restaurant. His website says they are hiring for all positions, including wait staff, dishwashers, and kitchen staff.
Tiger Woods is also planning to move his international headquarters in the same downtown Jupiter location. Tiger Woods Design designs golf courses and sells merchandise with the Tiger Woods brand.
Tiger Woods has been laying low socially since his break-up with Lindsey Vonn. His poor showing on the PGA Tour at the British Open was a setback, but he has his eye on winning the Quicken Loans National, which benefits the Tiger Woods Foundation. Right now he is rank 266 on the PGA Tour.
