Fore: Hit the Links Near Hollyhock
With four golf courses in the area, golf lovers will have a ball living at Hollyhock. Tee up with this crash course on the links in the area.
Old American Golf Club
The Colony, TX - 10 miles from Hollyhock
Designed by Tripp Davis and Justin Leonard based on classic courses from the early 1900s, this semiprivate club is a “player’s course that is both extremely challenging and picturesque,” according to GolfChannel.com. Set on a peninsula on Lake Lewisville, the course offers sweeping views of the water and the occasional sighting of the red-tailed hawks who call the area home. In a nod to the club’s name, historical touches include a steel railroad bridge built in 1900 that once crossed Texas’s Red River and a barn constructed in the 1920s to store hay; it now houses golf carts. Free tours are available on request.
Trails of Frisco Golf Club
Frisco, TX - 6 miles from Hollyhock
Rolling hills, wide Bermuda greens, attractive wetlands and impressive bunkering are standouts on this 6,800-yard, par-71 course designed by Jeffrey Brauer. With water features part of 17 of the 18 holes, this semiprivate course presents a challenge to golfers of every level. Fortunately, golfers can relax after a round at the clubhouse bar and grill or the banquet room with expansive views of the course.
Plantation Golf Club
Frisco, TX - 11 miles from Hollyhock
Part of Plantation Resort, Plantation Golf Club’s championship course features multiple tees at each hole to accommodate golfers of all skill levels. Nine ponds, 20 sand bunkers, tall trees and wide Bermuda greens are hallmarks of this 6402-yard, par-72 course, designed by Richard Ellis. An all-grass driving range and putting and chipping areas are also available. The club is open to the public every day.
Still can’t get enough golf? You can also book a stay at the Westin Stonebriar Hotel & Golf Club in Frisco to get access to its spectacular 18 holes, designed by legendary golf course designer Tom Fazio.
