Spotlight: Tour 18 Dallas brings the most famous holes in the US into one round
It looks like we’re going to get not one, but two looks at Augusta National within about five months from fall of 2020 to April of 2021. Tantalizing, amirite? Of course, watching The Masters on TV is exciting, but the chances of any of us actually getting to play the course and the holes of Amen Corner is a long shot.
Enter Tour 18 Dallas. It’s one of two Tour 18 concepts in Texas (the other is Tour 18 Houston) and features a collection of replicas of the most famous holes around the country from Augusta National to Pine Valley.
If you’re a fan of watching golf held on the grandest stages, you’ll savor the chance to take on some of the most famous holes in the world. Tour 18’s front nine culminates with a Sawgrass-replicated island green par 3, and the back nine wraps in thrilling fashion with the three holes that make up Augusta’s “Amen Corner.”
There are other replica holes from private clubs you may never get to play, including Pine Valley, Riviera and Oakmont.
If you’re a Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex golfer who hasn’t played Tour 18 Dallas in awhile, the course just reopened this fall following a greens project. They’re now brand new and rolling as excellent as the pro golfers experience week in and week out.
“Greens were much improved. Solid course with fun look at the best of the best,” wrote a Golf Advisor reviewer in October, 2020.
Tour 18 Dallas is located in Flower Mound, just north of Fort Worth and just off I-35 W. Facilities are built to tour-grade quality with a large clubhouse with locker rooms and a bar and restaurant overlooking the island green replica of Sawgrass. There is also a full practice facility and driving range.
