Maridoe Golf Club, previously named The Honors Golf Club Dallas and for most of its history named the Columbian Country Club of Dallas, is a, 18 hole golf course located in Carrollton, Texas.
The Columbian Country Club of Dallas dated to 1881. It was originally the exclusive club for the Jewish community, in large part started because of denial to join other clubs based on religious prejudice.
The Columbian Club purchased land in Carrollton in the early 1950's. They opened a 9 hole, Ralph Plummer designed course in 1955. Leon Howard added the second nine which opened in 1960. The course was renovated by Joe Finger - 1971, and D.A. Weibring - 1999.
