About the Texas Women's Open
The Women's Texas Open was played from 1935 - 1955. Over the span of two decades, the event was held 17 times - 13 years at River Crest Country Club and four years at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth. The event was conducted by the Fort Worth Women's Golf Association, supervised by River Crest's longtime professional A.G. Mitchell, and was last played in 1955. Some of the game's greatest names captured the event including Babe Zaharias who won the title five times, Aniela Goldthwaite, a three-time winner, and Betsy Rawls, Beverly Hanson, Polly Riley, and Betty Jameson who each captured the title twice. The event was revived in 2001 by the Northern Texas PGA to promote the game to female golfers throughout the region and the name was changed to the Texas Women's Open.

About Rolling Hills Country Club
In 1954, local golfing families in the area got together and decided to form a country club.  After acquiring the necessary land, the club was able to begin construction on the first nine holes in early 1955. By 1962 the course had been enlarged to 18 holes. In May 2001, the club moved into a 17,000 square foot facility encompassing a golf shop, restaurant and banquet room, locker rooms and private member areas.  Today, Rolling Hills boasts of some of the best greens and fairways in the Metroplex with a renovation completed by Colligan Golf Design in 2014.
