Brian Tucker

University Club Atop Symphony Towers, San Diego

Member since: 2008

Who he is: Founder and principal of Punta Brava, a $100 million exclusive golf community just south of Ensenada, Mexico, that will break ground by the end of the year.

The project: The 300-acre development will include 120 home sites and luxury villas (villas slated to open by 2012), and a Tiger Woods-designed par-70, 18-hole course. Tiger's first oceanside layout, the 6,835-yard course is scheduled to open in late 2011.

Getting with Tiger: After finding the land on a hidden tip of a peninsula, Tucker and his partners approached Woods. "Tiger did his final walkthrough the week after the U.S. Open last year. He was blown away, and we've been working together ever since."

What's Tiger like? "He wants everything he does to be the best. He's very focused, but the guy is an absolute blast." - ARIEL HAMMOND
