Canyon West’s par 72 course takes golfers careening across 6,653 yards of bermuda-grass fairways, immaculately groomed greens, and undulating terrain through foothills that crest over dramatic panoramas of four surrounding counties stretching into the horizon. The course seamlessly pays tribute to the heritage of its surroundings with 21 Western frontier scenes weaved into its emerald corridors, including vintage wagons, rugged tools, and an ahead-of-its-time golf simulator salvaged from the Alamo. Though slopes that lean generously towards fairways and greens make this a relatively player-friendly course, Canyon West supplies ample difficulty with its strategically placed bunkers and water hazards that appear on multiple holes, including a par 3 with an island green. A peppy cart zips clubbers from tees to their flag-marked manifest destinies throughout the round, pausing only to gawk at the pristine waters of eight on-course lakes and one soothing waterfall.

Canyon West Golf Club
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.
