Trinity Forest Golf Club is the new home of the PGA TOUR's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. The course was created explicitly to attract prestigious golf championships back to Dallas; thereby, driving community impact and charitable activity. 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. The Club is located less than 10 minutes from downtown Dallas on Great Trinity Forest Boulevard, and the facilities will include an 18-hole championship golf course, a world-class practice academy, and a short course, all designed by Coore and Crenshaw. Trinity Forest will host an NCAA invitational tournament and additional high-profile professional and amateur events. The Club is also the home course for SMU's golf teams.
