AvidGolfer recently revealed its highly anticipated Best of Private Clubs 2015 listing, and we’re pleased to announce that ClubCorp was ranked among numerous categories!
In the Best Country Club – First Class Category, meaning the Initiation Fee is between $25,001 and $59,999, two ClubCorp clubs nabbed top spots. Stonebriar Country Club was named No. 2, and Gleneagles Country Club, called “the best of the best,” was named No. 4.
The Best Country Club – Mid-Priced Category (Initiation Fees between $10,001 and $25,000) saw two more ClubCorp clubs win titles. Las Colinas Country Club came in fourth, and Stonebridge Ranch Country Club won the No. 5 title with its innovative and “unbelievable” dual membership – a great value for its Members. Touted for its consistently excellent service, AvidGolfer said, “If you like Sunday brunch, it doesn’t get much better than Las Colinas Country Club.”
In the category Best Country Club – Value-Priced Category, ClubCorp clubs swept all top five places! Coming in at No. 1 was Trophy Club Country Club, followed by Brookhaven Country Club at No. 2. The Clubs of Prestonwood earned the No. 3 spot, followed by Canyon Creek Country Club and Hackberry Creek Country Club in the No. 4 and No. 5 spots, respectively. AvidGolfer said, “This category could be dubbed, ‘The Category that ClubCorp Built;’ it is true, all five of these clubs are ClubCorp clubs, and that just further proves how the company excels at cultivating top-notch, family-friendly country clubs that don’t cost an arm and a leg.”
Stonebriar Country Club came in first place in overall Best Value, and Stonebridge Ranch Country Club was named No. 3 on the same list, followed by Trophy Club Country Club at No. 4. Timarron Country Club was named the No. 1 Best Golf Club in the First-Class Category, as well.
Congratulations to our wonderful DFW-area clubs!
Nearly 100 Members at Brookhaven Country Club in Farmers Branch, Texas, were at the club yesterday to watch 20-year-old golfer Jordan Spieth play his final round of the Masters at Augusta National. Spieth grew up playing golf at Brookhaven and his parents are still Members.
Spieth was tied for the lead with Bubba Watson at 5 under going into fourth round and, though Watson went on to win the green jacket – his second in three years – Spieth held his own, leading by two strokes after seven holes. Had he won, Spieth would have been the youngest player to ever win the Masters.
It wasn’t just the Members who were interested in Spieth’s play – several local news shows were on hand at Brookhaven to cover the club’s support and each one interviewed Teaching Instructor Joey Anders, who began working with Spieth when he was 8 years old and continued working with him until he was 13.
This won’t be the last time a crowd comes to the club to support Spieth as he competes. No doubt, he has a long career ahead of him and the Members and staff at Brookhaven will be proudly cheering him on through every par, birdy, bogey and eagle along the way.
Today the Masters Tournament officially tees off at Augusta National in Augusta, Georgia! Even though Tiger Woods and the famous 17th hole Eisenhower Tree won’t be there, the tournament still promises a lot of drama. Star veterans are returning like Roy McIlroy, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson are returning, but this year a record 24 Masters rookies will begin play, including Brookhaven Country Club’s Jordan Spieth. We'll see what happens! You can follow the tournament leader board here.
Aside from this morning's exciting tee-off, Augusta also hosted fun junior festivities earlier this week!
Leo Cheng, an 11-year-old representing Porter Valley Country Club, holed a 6-footer on the 18th hole to win his age bracket in the inaugural Drive, Chip and Putt competition! Leo's trophy was presented by Masters Champion Adam Scott.
Falling behind Cheng, Brookhaven Country Club’s Kyle Cox placed fourth in the Drive, Chip and Putt competition. We are so proud of our young Members and wish them great future success!
Happy Masters Week everyone!
