The beautiful landscape of the area—formerly a land made up of ranches set among rolling hills—makes for exquisite golf events. Golf groups will want to explore the two courses of the The Las Colinas Resort, Dallas. The Tournament Player’s Course (TPC) was the former host of the PGA’s AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and one of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex’s premiere golf stops, while Cottonwood Valley is the exclusive golf course for members of the Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club. Both courses were designed by notable golf figures and are perfect for golf events.
Sports groups also find the Las Colinas Country Club to be an exceptional venue. With luxury amenities, including a restaurant on the 18th green, lounge and bar, and the 19th Hole, a men’s club and grill, the club makes events feel exclusive. And while the club is private, it is open to hosting tournaments. Players can shoot for birdies while watching the Dallas skyline rise above the fairway. You can also take advantage of the club’s state-of-the-art tennis complex, pool, fitness center, and more.
