Lake Arlington Golf Center, previously named Arlington Family Golf Center, is a Public, 18 hole golf course located in Arlington, Texas.
The course first opened for play in 1963. The course was designed by Ralph Plummer.
The course exemplifies Plummer's architectural philosophy. He believed a golf course should flow with the surrounding land, utilizing the existing landscape, elevation changes, streams, prevailing winds, and other natural conditions to create unique holes and challenging approach shots. While Plummer's design remains the heart of Lake Arlington, the course has undergone two renovations since its birth. A massive flood in 1989 overwhelmed the emergency spillway west of Hole 12, flooding much of the course and dumping eight feet of silt on the fairway of Hole 8. The renovation that ensued included a complete overhaul of the Hole 2 green, and re-engineering of select ponds and drainage across the golf course. The second renovation, completed in 2009, included reconstruction of all greens. These changes included the addition of berms and swales around the greens along with elevation changes and improvements to the putting surfaces. The fairways were also renovated and converted to an improved Bermudagrass.
Par for the course is 71. From the back tees the course plays to 6637 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5485 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 15, a par-5 that plays to 579 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 2, a par-3 that plays to 178 yards from the back tees.
Watch out for # 1, a 419 yard par-4 challenge and the #2 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole is # 9, a 469 yard par-5.
