Tour some of the best golf courses in the Dallas/Fort Worth area

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.

Brandon Tucker is the Managing Editor for Golf Advisor. To date, his golf travels have taken him to over two dozen countries and over 500 golf courses worldwide. While he's played some of the most prestigious courses in the world, Tucker's favorite way to play the game is on a great muni in under three hours.

Here's a question I get a lot when people ask me about playing golf in the Dallas/Fort Worth area: Where can I find cheap golf that's worth playing? Fortunately, that's an easy one to answer. And there are a lot of answers. While the DFW area certainly has its share of higher-priced courses such as the Cowboys Golf Club and Tour 18 Dallas, there are a lot of bargains out there, and many of them are quite good.
The Dallas-Fort Worth area has a wealth of good to really good public golf courses. But what may surprise you is that it has one of the best collections of municipals courses in the country. Both Dallas and Fort Worth proper have some pretty good munis, but even better are that many of the suburbs have some outstanding municipal layouts by some pretty good designers. Best of all, they're all very affordable. Here's a rundown of some my favorites.
