From Our Editors
The course at Canyon West Golf Club pays homage to Texas’s frontier days through vintage accoutrements and an Old West vibe. Golfers set off on an anachronistic excursion as they herd golf balls over 419 Bermuda fairways and Champion greens carpeting the foothills of Parker County. During searches for runaway balls, they may happen upon one of the 21 Western scenes strewn about the course, complete with rustic wagons and tack. Though lakes and plenty of bunkers also lie about the course ready to snag errant shots, the terrain was designed to help golfers keep the ball in play rather than allowing it to roll out of bounds or hitch a ride on a passing tumbleweed. The terrain’s natural undulations hoist golfers up for panoramic views from eight elevated tee boxes, where they can see four counties stretching out toward the horizon.
