Some good news is teeing up for the golf lovers out there. We’re gearing up for the “year of golf” with four new and improved courses on the horizon throughout the metroplex. From classic course restorations to state-of-the-art swing suites, we’re ready to swing away at these new facilities.

Colonial Country Club | Reopening May 2024

The storied University-area club is going back to its roots with a $20 million renovation. Set to be completed in time for the 2024 Charles Schwab Challenge in May, the master plan will take the course back to its 1941 U.S. Open design with help from golf course architects Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner.

The master plan includes:

  • Renovations to the clubhouse with new gathering spaces, updated technology, and elevated member experiences
  • Installation of a hydronic system underneath each green
  • Construction of a $4.3 million training center and practice facility for TCU men’s and women’s golf (set to be completed July 2024)
