Construction is preparing to swing away at Meadowbrook Golf Course.
The course first opened in 1924 as Meadowbrook Country Club before the city purchased it in 1938. Managed by Fort Worth Golf, the Eastside 18-hole course is considered one of the “top 25 municipal golf courses in Texas.”
Now, as the recreation area approaches its 100th birthday, the fairways are ready for some upgrades.
In 2021, the city hired Arlington-based Colligan Golf Design — who oversaw the 2017 renovation of Rockwood Park — to develop a master plan. Renovations totaling $7 million were approved in the 2022 Bond Program.
The new designs make the most of the site’s rolling hills and will:
- Reroute all holes except 10, 12 + 13
- Change Hole 12 from a par four to a par five + Hole 13 from a par five to a par four
- Replace the irrigation system, turf + cart trails
- Stabilize the creek
The park will close this fall as the city aims to tee off construction in November. Completion is slated for early summer 2025.
