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!
10-year-old Emma Costa, a junior member at Timarron Country Club in Southlake, TX, caught all of our attention over the weekend. The young talent advanced from the regional qualifier to the finals of the Drive, Chip & Putt Championship in Augusta, GA. The tournament is put on by the Masters Tournament Foundation, the United States Golf Association, and PGA of America.
Come April 6, 2014, the day before practice rounds begin for the Masters Tournament, Costa will be representing North Texas at Augusta National Golf Club. Out of over tens of thousands of 7-15 year-old boys and girls that competed, Costa finished in the top 88 in the country. Costa has been working hard all summer as she competed in as many tournaments as possible in preparation for this moment.
Along with her regional win, Costa receives three tickets to the Masters practice round. She's already designated one ticket for her caddy - her mom.
