ABOUT TRINITY FOREST GOLF CLUB
Trinity Forest Golf Club was created explicitly to attract prestigious golf championships back to Dallas. Designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, the championship course at Trinity Forest Golf Club adheres to their design philosophy that traditional, strategic golf is the most rewarding. Built in the Great Trinity Forest and surrounded on its edges by thousands of majestic hardwood trees, the classic links-style course artistically meanders through an open meadow of rolling, rumpled sand recalling the wind swept land of Great Britain or the Northeastern US.  Trinity Forest is the future home of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, and the home course for SMU’s golf teams.
