TPC Four Seasons Resort & Club
The Sports Club Four Seasons boasts two golf courses - the TPC and Cottonwood - venue of the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. The first two rounds of this PGA Tour tournament are played on the Cottonwood Valley Course, usually reserved for members of the club, and the two folllowing rounds on the TPC course, open to guests at the resort.
• TPC Course
Jay Morrish, Ben Crenshaw & Byron Nelson (1983) + D.A. Weibring & Steve Wolford (2009)
18 holes • 6,500 yds • Par 70 • SSS 73,2 • Slope 136
Originally designed by Jay Morrish with player consultants Byron Nelson and Ben Crenshaw, the course was given a dramatic redesign in 2009 by Champion Tour player D.A. Weibring and architect partner Steve Wolford. The TPC is a challenging layout with large undulating greens, tree-lined fairways and several water hazards in the form of natural creeks and ponds coming into play regularly during the round. The course affords nice views over Dallas skyline in the distance.
• Cottonwood Valley Course
Robert Trent Jones II (1982) + Jay Morrish (2007)
18 holes • 7,120 yds • Par 71 • CR 73,5 • Slope 135
After a six-month renovation directed by Jay Morrish, the course reopened in 2007 to its original splendour. Originally designed by Robert Trent Jones II’s, Cottonwood Valley runs through rolling hills and a beautiful residential community - the signature hole's green has the shape of Texas! The course is usually reserved for members of the club and their guests.
• Byron Nelson Golf School
Outstanding golf education is offered exclusively to private groups at the award-winning Byron Nelson Golf School. Byron Nelson was a master of the game and his flawless swing a legend amongs its peers on the Tour. Today, along with a top of the notch teaching staff, Mr. Nelson has created a golf school unique in its approach and unmatched in its facilities, techniques and philosophy.
Dallas & Fort Worth Golf
There are several golf courses in the Dallas - Fort Worth metropolitan area, but unfortunately the three highest ranked are private venues and access restricted to members and their guests. These are Dallas National GC (Tom Fazio, 2000) a modern parkland course laid out for a few hundred elite members, Colonial GC (Perry Maxwell, 1936) a classic parkland layout homeclub of Ben Hogan and venue of the US Opeen, US Women Open and TPC, and Brook Hollow GC (Albert W. Tillinghast, 1920), a vintage forest layout recently updated by Ben Crenshaw and Bill Cooore. Yet there are several other courses opened to the public, including another Tillinghast design and PGA Championship venue at Cedar Crest and three astonishing replica courses at Tour 18 and The Tribute, whose holes are clones of famous American and Scotish courses !
• Cedar Crest Golf Club
Albert W. Tillinghast (1919) + D.A. Weibring (2004)
18 holes • 6,532 yds • Par 70 • SSS 71.7 • Slope 132
Venue of the 1927 PGA Championship
Designed in the 1920’s by Tillinghast, reputed for his work at Baltusrol, Winged Foot and Bethpage, this legendary course has maintained the quality and tradition it established years ago. Originally a private club, Cedar Crest had the privilege to host the 1927 PGA Championship won by Walter Hagen. After WW II, the club was bought in 1946 by the City of Dallas,, which hired D.A. Wiebring to renovate the course in 2004, bringing it back to its former splendour by re-grassing tees, fairways and greens with hybrid Bermuda grass and adding new bunkers.
The course was laid out over rolling land, with mature trees lining the fairways throughout and nine holes presenting doglegs, both elements adding a lot of variety to the round. Water come into play on 10 holes, the greens are on the small side - rather fast and somewhat elevated, while 36 bunkers, mostly guarding the greens, add to the challenge. With its rolling terrain, greenside bunkers, and tree-lined fairways, the course stresses the accuracy and ball control. Cedar Crests remains enjoyable to the averge club golfer while presenting a real challenge to the lower handicaper.
• Tour 18 Golf Club
David Edsall (1995) 18 holes • 7,033 • Par 72 • SSS 74,3 • Slope 138
Located just northeast of DFW Inernational Airport, Tour 18 is an startling replica course of the PGA Tour history most famous holes. These cloned holes are; Cherry Hills #, Baltusrol #8, Doral #18, Crooked Stick #15, Winged Foot #10, Medinah #10, Oakland Hills #16, Sawgrass #17 (Island), Oakmont #3, Southern Hills #12, Riviera #6, Pine Valley #17, Firestone #14, Muirfield Vllage #17 and Augusta #11,12,13 (Amen Corner). This collection of replicas offers a stunning challenge and the opportunity to play them all in one day and at one place, creating a uniquely memorable experience. Further, the course offers spectacular views miles around and an elegant Georgian mansion clubhouse, where to enjoy a drink after a PGA round through history.
Located in The Colony, minutes away North of Dallas, The Tribute is a premier community on a private peninsula untting into Lake Lewisville and home to 36 holes of golf at the award-winning Old American Golf Club and Tribute Golf Links. True to their names, these two courses pay tribute to the the best holes of Scottish links and classic American courses.
• The Tribute Golf Links
Tripp Davis (2000) 18 holes • 7,002 - Par 72 - SSS 73,2 • Slope 122
The Tribute Golf Links offers a unique Scottish links-style golf experience - a championship layout designed by Tripp Davis & Associates to emulate holes from some of the greatest golf courses in Scotland, the birthplace of golf. These holes range from the famous St. Andrews’ Road Hole, First and Finishing 18th holes, including a walk over the Swilken Bridge, Royal Troon’s Postage Stamp to Carnoustie’s 5th, known as Hogan’s Alley, as well holes from Turnberry, Muirfield, Moray, Nairn, Prestwick and Royal Dornoch.
The course is links style, complete with mounding dunes, tall fescue grass bordering the landing areas and off the fairways, and the greens are open in the front, all complemented by the shore of Lake Lewisbille acting as the Seashore, although the Texas breeze is gentler than in Scotland. Also, a clever part of the round is that there is a plate identifying a particular historical moment related to each hole on the hole markers.
• Old American Golf Club at Tribute
Justin Leonard & Tripp Davis (2010) 18 holes • 6,898 yds • Par 71 • SSS • Slope
After designing The Tribute Golf Links in 2000, Tripp Davis engaged on designing the Old American Golf Club – this time with the help PGA Tour player Justin Leonard. To differentiate the course from its “Scottish” neighbour, the design here is reminiscent of early American courses from the Golden Age designed by early master architects such as Donal Ross, McDonald, Tillinghast, Maxwell, etc. – when wind, weather and sand served as par’s defense as much as man made hazards. From naturally formed bunkers and native grasses, to a back nine routed along the shores of Lake Lewisville, the stunning setting and constant cross winds off the lake combine to provide an unforgettable round. Although still a fairly new course, the club has hosted a U.S. Open qualifier in 2012, while recieving numerous accolades from the press.
“Together we set out to create a golf experience that would not only give players a visual sense of the courses from the ‘Golden Age of Architecture’, but the ability to experience the strategic interest and variety that has often been lost in the modern era,” said Tripp Davis and to quote Justin Leonard “For as long as I have been able to play the game of golf over some of the best golf courses in the world, I have been in love with the early American golf courses. I have been fortunate to play tournament golf over courses such as Shinnecock Hills, Pebble Beach, Winged Foot, and Pinehurst, which has given me a very in-depth perspective of the strategic elements that make these courses great and a sense of how the strategic side of golf architecture was approached with these early American golf courses”
With a population of well over one million, the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area is the largest metropolitan area in the South and fourth-largest in the nation, while its economy is the sixth largest in the United States. Dallas was founded in 1841 and was formally incorporated as a city in February 1856. The city's economy is primarily based on banking, commerce, technology and energy, home to the third largest concentration of Fortune 500 companies in the nation. The city's prominence rose from its historical importance as a center for the oil and cotton industries, and its strategic location along numerous railroad lines and interstate highway. In modern time Dallas developed a strong industrial and financial sector due largely to the presence of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, one of the largest and busiest airports in the world.
The "Big D," as Dallas is known, is a glittering city of skyscrapers rising in the middle of the flat Texas prairie. The city offers a quintessential experience to the Lone Star state - barbecue and steaks, cowboy boots and live country music. Nevertheless, in a state known of cowboys and oilrigs, Dallas has more to offer and sriks a balance of culture and big business. Main atttractions include the nation's largest Arts District that includes the Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center. The Dallas County Historical Plaza offers visitors a glimpse the city's history, whiile the the John F. Kennedy Memorial accounts for modern hsitory and the assassination of America's 35th President.
