Detailed description of Lone Oak Golf Club, CLOSED 2009

Lone Oak Golf Club is a Semi-Private 18-hole golf course located in, Lone Oak, TX

Lone Oak Golf Club opened for play in 2008. The course was designed by Jeffery Brauer, whose portfolio includes The Brookhaven Country Club in Dallas: The Masters Course, The Champions Course, and The Presidents Course. In addition, Jeffery Brauer designed Jerry Jones Cowboys Golf Club for the Dallas Cowboys.

The Lone Oak Golf Club is a "Links" style course. Long and demanding for the experienced player, while fair and playable for the weekend golfer. Lone Oaks is an interesting change from the typical Texas golf course.

The course closed in 2009.

The Villages of Lone Oak was a 960-acre residential project on the shores of Lake Tawakoni, in Lone Oak, TX.  The developer was offering over 1,000 single family homes, mostly second homes. Land planning was very sensitive, with constant minor moves to preserve specimen trees, wetlands, historic structures (the site contains the historic Ford’s crossing dating to the 1800s, prior to creating Lake Tawakoni) and even attractive rock outcrops. Most owners were buying second homes.  

Rather than line each fairway with homes, the developer allowed us to put two holes parallel to each other to improve golf ambiance.  Some holes were inspired by classic Golden Age architects, including no. 12, based on Ross designs at hole 14 at Oakland Hills with a reverse slope green, and a Seth Raynor inspired Biarritz green at No. 9. 

Sadly, the development didn’t survive the downturn of 2006-8, which occurred just as the project was breaking ground.
