Designed by noted course architect Tripp Davis and former British Open champion and Dallasite Justin Leonard, Old American hugs the shores of Lake Lewisville just 20 minutes north of DFW International Airport.
The course, which opened in 2010, pays homage to the “Golden Age” of golf course architecture – a period of excellence between 1911 and 1937 – and garnered “best new” recognition from GOLF Magazine, Golfweek and LINKS. Naturally formed bunkers, organic green complexes and a variety of native grasses combine to create holes leveraging varying wind conditions.
NYLO blends urban, industrial design with classic Texas comfort to provide a superior and highly entertaining hotel experience. Business and leisure travelers alike will enjoy luxury, loft-style accommodations and unique destination restaurants such at the Terrace Bistro, SODA Bar, LOCL and The LOFT.

About Old American Golf Club
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.
Acclaimed architect Tripp Davis, an accomplished amateur player and former All-American at the University of Oklahoma, and PGA TOUR/Ryder Cup star Justin Leonard, who played 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 5,215-yard forward markers to the 7,174-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.
