About The Golf Club at Fossil Creek
What if you had the chance to play on a golf course that's been titled the "# 1 Most Underrated Golf Club", one of the top 5 renovated clubs, and the fifth "Best Overall Golf Club" in the Dallas-Fort Worth area? The Golf Club at Fossil Creek carries these titles and more and can surely deliver on the accolades it has received in the past 3 years. This 72 par, 1150 acre course, designed by the famous Arnold Palmer, offers more than any award could express.
This expansive course runs the usual gamut of increased difficulty with each new hole. From the starting hole – the Meadow – to the grand finale – the Chute – the 18-hole course at Fossil Creek will test the skills of even the most fine tuned golfers. Fossil Creek itself snakes through several holes, splitting the fairway from the green in the most inconvenient of ways; Water hazards are made all the more troublesome with downward slopes that invite any and all stray golf balls for a dip in the picturesque water; and large, strategically placed sand traps add that last bit of challenge to what is already the most stressful part of the hole. While nature is mostly an inconvenience while on a course, the starts of some holes offer a gorgeous picturesque view of the nuisances to come.
If you're looking for a more hardcore golfing experience, Fossil Creek is home to an array of tournaments for the more skilled golfers to show off at. Partaking in a tournament at Fossil Creek typically comes with several perks, which include beverages carts, curb-side bag handling, golf clinics hosted by PGA professionals, and an array of food choices to keep you energized throughout play and after the match. Even after the tournament, Fossil Creek offers a PGA-driven instructional lesson, hosted by the club's Director of Instruction Troy Lewis.
Though the main the drive (no pun intended) of coming to a place like Fossil Creek is for the golf facilities, sometimes the crisp landscaping and natural setting make for the setting for a wedding ceremony. To accommodate those that wish to make use of the locations' pristine scenery, Fossil Creek has an on-site wedding coordinator that can put an ease behind the wedding planning process. A 25,000 square foot clubhouse houses the 150 person capacity Greatroom where guests can wine and dine with panoramic views of the Fossil Creek course. On-site catering ensures guests will receive a five-star meal no matter what kind of event they're planning. Though the facility may not be able to provide every nuance for the party, the coordinator will be glad to refer you to a third party for extras like music, floral arrangements, and photographers.
