About The Tribute Golf Course
If you've grown tired of golfing on generic looking golf courses, then clearly it is time for a change of scenery. Though all courses are made up of the same color components – a lot of green, some blue, and the occasional specks of tan – the feel and successfulness of a course is sometimes reliant on its surroundings. In Dallas, one would not expect themselves to be transported to the vast greens of Scotland, but the Tribute has succeeded in recreating the renowned Scottish courses as Prestwick, St. Andrews, and Troon. Not only do these recreations guarantee an overly game of golf, anybody that steps on these greens can expect to be transported back to the golden age of golf.
The Tribute is aptly named as each of its 18-holes pay homage to 18 of Scotlands most prestigious courses. From the St. Andrews-inspired 1st hole, fittingly paying homage to the birthplace of golf, all the way to the final hole, which too pays tribute to St. Andrews, the Tribute course provides an unbridled experience for any golfer. Those used to the cookie-cutter courses found throughout the state will take pleasure in the almost unshapely look of this Dallas-based course. Players that wish to enjoy the settings for longer then the game lasts have the option of staying on-site in one of eight guestrooms that will surely transport any patron to old world Scotland. Each room offers a balcony view of the Tribute's course, which all but eradicates the need for the in-suite satellite television.
Voted "Best Clubhouse" by Avid Golfer Magazine, the Tribute offers an array of amenities that are sure to catch the eye of any surveyors. On top of the eight elegant guest suites, the clubhouse at Tribute houses a 1,000 square foot pro shop, which garnered the title of "Best Pro Shop" from Avid Golfer Magazine. Included in the usual array of clubs, balls, and attire, the pro shop at Tribute also extends the Scottish feel with memorabilia that could have easily been lifted from the Scottish golf courses. Through the pro shop, players can arrange for private or group instructions with any of the on-site professionals.
What would a trip to a course be without the promise of a refreshing end to a long day? At the Tribute, golfers can end their day in the company of Tom Morris' Pub. Tom Morris was one of Scotland's greater golfers, with a history that started in 1839 with Tom creating feather golf balls for the supposed first professional golfer, Allan Robertson. His interest in the game skyrocketed his name up with some of golf's greats, and now over 70 golf courses don his name. The tribute pub offers old Scottish flare with malt scotches imported from Scotland that complement an array of food options.
There is no course in Dallas that can rival the old world feel of Tribute, and that is one of the courses strongest points. Any golf fanatic should spend a day at this 18-hole homage to Scotland's greatest courses.
