August is National Golf Month, and there’s no better way to celebrate than with a tee time (or two, or ten) at one of Frisco’s premier golf courses. And when we say “premier,” we mean it. It just so happens that Frisco is home to not one, not two, but four nationally recognized golf courses. Here’s the scoop:
The Tom Fazio Championship Course at the Westin Stonebriar
This course represents celebrated course designer, Tom Fazio’s first foray into North Texas. The 322-acre course features heat-resistant grass and a five-acre lake. Know before you go: To access the course, you must be a guest at the Weston Stonebriar hotel.
The semi-private Trails of Frisco Golf Club features a par 71 course designed by Jeffrey D. Brauer. Guests also enjoy a clubhouse complete with full-service pro shop, bar and grill.
The Golf Club at Frisco Lakes offers a par 72 course comprised of nearly 7,100 playable yards on challenging Bermuda grass. Designed by Gary Stevenson Gold Design, the course includes peninsula and island greens.
This Richard Ellis-designed course has no fewer than 419 Bermuda grass fairways, 20 sand bunkers and 9 ponds. Expect plenty of water hazards, and prepare for hole no. 9: a 388-yard par 4 that starts with a tee shot up a dogleg left fairway.
