Fazio Foothills

Some masterpieces are shaped in clay; this one is formed in rolling hills.

The architectural layout features dramatic cliff-lined fairways, natural limestone caves, waterfalls, and superb TiffEagle Bermuda greens, which gives golfers 18 holes of pure pleasure with no lack of challenge. This unforgettable golfing experience provides plenty of elevation change and visual impact.

Tom Fazio puts a premium on long, accurate drives down the Hybrid TIFSport Bermuda fairways.  The small, TiffEagle Bermuda greens with undulating aprons and grass bunkers make the Fazio Foothills course a shot-maker’s paradise. And the five different sets of tee boxes appeal to a wide variety of skill levels.

In 2004, The Foothills golf course was upgraded to continue challenging players and evolve with the changing game of golf. Representatives of course designer Tom Fazio was consulted on where to best add yardage and tees to improve play and continue to challenge players. Foothills received new fairway and tee grass and gained nearly 200 yards, making the total yardage on this par 72 course 7,125 yards. The result is a better-looking, better-playing grass that “greens-up” earlier in the season and stays green later into the fall, creating a more consistent and dense playing surface.

The Fazio Foothills course, established in 1986, ranks at the top of all experts’ lists. Golfweek Magazine rates the Foothills #4 among America’s 50 Best Resort Courses. The course is also named the Best Resort Course in Texas and has the distinction of consistently having several holes listed among the State’s Best or Most Beautiful Holes (holes #12, 4, 9, 16, 10, 18) recognized by the Dallas Morning News.
