Detailed description of Colonial Country Club

Colonial Country Club is a Private, 18 hole golf course located in Fort Worth, Texas.

Colonial Country Club was founded in 1936 by Marvin Leonard. Mr. Leonard engaged John Bredemus of Texas and Perry Maxwell of Oklahoma to assist with the course layout by asking each to submit five alternative plans for the course. After reviewing their recommendations, he asked them to submit five more from which Mr. Leonard began picking and borrowing from both designers to create the Colonial design. The course has been redesigned by Perry Maxwell and Keith Foster.

The golf course hosted the U.S. Open in 1941 and the 1991 U.S. Women's Open. The course is well-maintained and extremely difficult. Greens are on the small side and guarded by white sand bunkers. Many of the greens are elevated. The course is bordered by the Trinity River across which can be seen and heard the trains in the adjacent, large, and working rail yards.

#5 is included in many lists of best golf holes. The Best 18 Golf Holes in America, included Colonial's hole number 5 in their listing. The hole is dogleg-right par-4 that plays to 459 yards (481 for the pros). The book's author, Dan Jenkins says of the hole, "The drive must be almost perfect, a slight fade and 250 yards out if you are going to reach it in two. But fade too much, and there is the Trinity River waiting. You can bail out to the left, but there is a line of trees and a ditch there."

Championship tees: par-70, 7,054 yards, 74.7 / 133 White tees: par-70, 6,085 yards, 69.6 / 124

Red tees: par-72, 5,745 yards, 74.7 / 136

I played as a guest of a member. Ben Hogan's office has been recreated next to the pro shop. The club also has a small "museum" dedicated to him just off the main entrance, with several mementoes of his on display. A larger than life size bronze statue of Hogan is just outside the pro shop overlooking the 18th green. The first floor has many photographs of past tournaments played there. Just a great, classic, historic golf club.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles
Bottom line: I would play again, Ranks with the best in this price level, Best course in the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
