Home to Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, Fort Worth’s rich golf heritage is highlighted each year by one of the most prestigious PGA tournaments, the Dean & DeLuca Invitational Colonial, which is held annually at the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth. Throughout the year, though, golfers can choose from a variety of courses.
For a true challenge, golfers can play an Arnold Palmer-designed championship course at The Golf Club Fossil Creek, which bills itself as the Southwest’s most exclusive public course and offers 6,865 yards of golf. Originally designed by golf course architect Ralph Plummer in 1963, Pecan Valley Golf Course features two 18-hole golf courses, one of which is thought to be a top municipal course in the state, while Meadowbrooks Golf Course is an 18-hole regulation facility and is considered one of the top 25 municipal golf courses in Texas. Ridglea Country Club offers members two of the finest golf facilities in the Metroplex, and the Steven Plumer-designed Waterchase Golf Club, winding through the hills of east Fort Worth, offers an unmatched combination of course design, course condition, and customer service.
Member-owned Mira Vista Country Club winds through scenic vistas throughout the 700-acre development. Don’t miss a shot at the world-class golf of Texas Star Golf Course, highly ranked by Golf Digest and GolfWeek. And if you want to learn to play, or feel like perfecting some skills, the Jim McLean Golf Center-Texas, open since 1999, is one of the top golf schools in the United States.
