DALLAS -- Thanks to its abundance, accessibility and long summer season, Dallas/Fort Worth is one of America's great golf metroplexes. It's also one with a storied history, thanks to courses such as Colonial Country Club and legends such as Byron Nelson and Ben Hogan having resided there.
For the public golfer, many of the municipalities in the area have great municipal courses, and the boom of golf and residential communities in the 1990s and 2000s created many more options, both private and public for the golfer.
All parts of Texas have storied private clubs and Dallas is no exception with Dallas National, Colonial, Golf Club of Dallas, TPC Craig Ranch and many more. It certainly pays to be a well heeled golfer in Dallas with access -- but the middle class will do just fine, too. Here's a look at the many options in Dallas/Fort Worth.
