The Palmer Course features 27 holes of undulating and mounded terrain, surrounded by challenging bunkers and intricate water hazards. It offers a challenge for even the best golfers. The original 18 holes (King and General nines) opened in 1990, the third nine (Deacon) opened for play in 1995. Each hole offers a new challenge, as the course was carved out of the tall Texas pines, making it an overall favorite for Members of all skill levels.
The Designer – Arnold Palmer
"A golf course must be built for all golfers and should be truly beautiful. There can be no gimmicks; every aspect of the course must serve the game of golf in the purest sense."
– Arnold Palmer
Arnold Palmer’s expertise extends well beyond his Hall of Fame golf career. In fact, his portfolio of golf course designs has landed him nearly an equal number of accolades. Palmer’s design career began in the 1960’s, and took flight in 1971 when he joined forces with the late Ed Seay. With a design philosophy of creating courses that challenge, but do not overwhelm, his designs are flexible enough for serious and skillful competition, yet provide a fun and pleasant experience for all golfers.
The 33,000-square-foot Palmer Clubhouse, located in the village of Cochran’s crossing, is a warm and elegant setting where Members can relax after work or a round of golf, gather for Bridge or have lunch. It boasts a bar area with a nice view, as well as a library for a quiet gathering. The Club maintains a full social and dining calendar, as well as hosts many catered member events.
