“Preview Foursome” drawings held daily for new Tripp Davis, Justin Leonard collaboration at The Tribute resort community
(THE COLONY, Tex.) – The Old American Golf Club – designed by Tripp Davis and PGA TOUR/Ryder Cup star Justin Leonard – makes its North Texas Golf Expo debut, January 29 – 31 at Dallas Market Hall, featuring daily “preview foursome” drawings for golfers registering at the club’s booth (No.153/155/252/254).
“Old American,” located at The Tribute Resort Community north of Dallas, is slated for soft opening this spring and grand opening over Independence Day weekend, July 2 – 4, in concert with The Colony’s “Liberty by the Lake” fireworks celebration.
Preview foursomes will be hosted between February 1 to April 30, offering local golfers a sneak peak at a golf course that has already drawn acclaim from Golfweek, USA Today, PGATOUR.com, the Dallas Morning News and Avid Golfer Magazine.
“This is a great opportunity for area golfers to learn more about The Old American Golf Club and the residential opportunities available at The Tribute,” says Jeff Kindred, General Manager. “The peninsula setting on Lake Lewisville creates a resort community atmosphere unique to the region, and Old American takes advantage of this enviable geography with a stretch of holes playing along the lake.”
Inspired by the ‘Golden Age’ of golf course architecture between 1911 and 1937, Old American’s natural contours, hazard styles, native grasses and green shapes were influenced by such masterpieces as Shinnecock Hills, National Golf Links, Prairie Dunes and Crystal Downs.
Davis, an accomplished amateur player and former All-American at the University of Oklahoma and Leonard, who played his college golf at the University of Texas, toured and played a handful of America’s classic Golden Age golf courses prior to starting the design process for Old American.
The result is a golf course that emphasizes strategy and shot-making and flows with a natural rhythm from first tee to 18th green. Old American features six sets of tees, ranging from the 5215-yard forward markers to the 7174-yard “Leonard” tournament tees. Davis and Leonard conceived the routing and layout with both medal and match play in mind, as golfers are required to hold “steady to par” through a number of holes, but enticed to gamble on birdie or better during select stretches of the course.
