A day on the green sounds heavenly, especially in Dallas, Texas, where golf is a favorite pastime for many. Some of the golf courses in Dallas have hosted big-time tournaments, while all offer challenging, fun, and beautiful scenery for the golf enthusiast. Check out our favorites below.
Cedar Crest Golf Course was formerly the 18-hole golf course of the Cedar Crest Country Club, designed by A.W. Tillinghast in 1919. Here, the first Dallas Open was held in 1926, and in 1927, it was the site of the PGA Championship. In 2004, it underwent a renovation by D.A. Weibring/Golf Resources, Inc. and continues to be well-loved, thanks to their rolling terrain. They offer black, gold, silver, ruby, and family tees to encourage golfers of all abilities to come out and play.
TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas is one of the best golf courses around. The 18-hole, par-7 course was designed in 1982 by Jay Morrish with the help of Byron Nelson and Ben Crenshaw, and later redesigned in 2009 by D.A. Weibring and Steve Wolfard. Today, the course is 7,166 yards and a part of the Four Seasons Las Colinas luxurious resort. They offer golfers a driving range, sand bunker practice area, and putting and chipping greens. There are PGA golf instructors and a pro shop here, too.
Tenison Park Golf Course is comprised of two golf courses, the Tenison Glen Course and the Tenison Highlands Course, and both are impressive in their own way. Tenison Glen was Dallas’ first municipally-owned golf course made from donated land by Mr. and Mrs. E.O. Tenison in 1924. It’s 18 holes, par-72, and 6,607 yards, comprised of beautiful greens and a layout that features the White Rock Creek running through it. It was also the host of the 1968 Public Links Championship. Tenison Highlands is newer, designed by D.A. Weibring and Steve Wolfard, and it opened in 2001. It’s a par-72, 18-hole golf course that’s 7,078 yards, featuring five lakes, 32 sand bunkers, 419 Bermuda fairways, and tiff-eagle greens. It’s a challenging, yet beautiful, course.
Stevens Park Golf Course was designed in 2011 by Colligan Golf Course and has become a favorite in the DFW. It’s lovingly referred to as “Little Augusta” and offers 18 holes of beautiful Mini Verde putting surfaces, Premier Tif fairways, Tifton 10 rough grass, and 38 sand bunkers. Enjoy natural beauty, like 900 recently added trees and 2,000 rosebushes, as you tee off on one of their five tee sets: juniors, ladies, seniors, men, and championship.
The Dallas Athletic Club is a private country club with facilities that focus primarily on fitness. In addition to restaurants, a gym, pool, and fitness program, they’re well-known for their premiere golf course. The 36-hole golf course has two 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Courses called the Blue Course and the Gold Course. They both feature Bentgrass and 419 Bermuda fairways. The Blue Course has waterfalls and rolling hills and hosted the 1936 PGA Championship, while the par-72 Gold Course has eight lakes and great views at every hole. They also have an eight-acre Short Game Practice Facility and a Teaching Center with video swing analysis.
The Dallas Country Club is a private club with 117.5 acres of land. Here, club members and visitors can enjoy restaurants, social activities, and fitness facilities. The Dallas Country Club has an 18-hole private golf course that measures 6,561 yards long. Their historic golf course is over 100 years old and was originally built in 1896. There are four sets of tees and the fairways are well-kept and meticulously trimmed. A pro shop, carts, clubs, a driving range, putting tea, and golf pros are all available.
