It’s official. Today it was announced that the AT&T Byron Nelson will move in 2018 from the Four Seasons to the new Trinity Forest Golf Club, which formally opens this weekend. Nearly every year, I get to play in a Nelson media tournament with a bunch of guys in red pants. I’m seriously looking forward to 2018. Meantime, though, I have just one little question: when it comes time for the tournament, where is everyone going to park? Here’s an earlier satellite view of the course under construction, so that you might understand why I’d ask this question.
After you read today's story from Bill Nichols about how great the Trinity Forest Golf Club is going to be, pop on over to our March issue, and read Curt Sampson's tale about Riverlake Country Club. In 1956, Bob Hope played a round at the course's grand opening, and Doak Walker sat on the club's board of directors. But within a few years, the Trinity River did what it does, and the club was bankrupt. Riverlake sat right across the river from where Trinity Forest GC is taking shape.
