Where PGA Tour star Jordan Spieth learned to play golf: Brookhaven Country Club near Dallas

FARMERS BRANCH, Texas -- Not be confused with Brookhollow, Brookhaven Country Club just north of Dallas is where Jordan Spieth learned to play golf. As it turns out, this ClubCorp family club was the perfect training ground for the young PGA Tour star.

With three golf courses (the Championship, Presidents and Masters) that provide entirely different challenges, plus an extensive short-game area and range, Spieth and the rest of the 2,500 or so members at Brookhaven have every opportunity to work on every shot in the game.

The club also features a large pro shop, restaurant, pool, renovated clubhouse, patio and cabanas, as well as one of the best tennis centers in the country, making it one of the busiest facilities in Texas.
