A Facility Worthy of Our Golfers

The golf course is truly a Texas treasure. The host of the Annual PGA Tours Byron Nelson, the 18-hole, par 70 course has received a major redesign by former PGA Tour champion D.A. Weibring and architect Steve Wolfard. The new layout is designed to be challenging for professional golfers as well as inviting to recreational players.
