New course to be built southwest of Fort Worth

By Alabama Golf News Staff
Kelly Ranch Golf Club

Fort Worth-based Escalante Golf unveiled plans for the $100 million Kelly Ranch Golf Club southwest of Fort Worth.

The Kelly Ranch Golf Club will be located on 240 acres of rugged rolling hills  20 minutes southwest of downtown Fort Worth at US Highway 377 and Kelly Road.

Designed by renowned golf course architect Tripp Davis, Kelly Ranch Golf Club will be a private golf club when completed in the spring of 2025.

Kelly Ranch Golf Club will feature an 18-hole championship course staggered throughout rugged rolling hills with 200-foot elevation changes, reminiscent of the Texas Hill Country.

Framed by stands of live oaks and indigenous cedar elm trees, and playing over and around creeks running through the terrain, the course will preserve the land’s existing wildlife, water, and environment, the developers said.

Davis’s design will employ his signature scalloped-edge bunker design, to be integrating with the existing undulating topography.

On the 7,600-yard course, greens will average 6,000 square feet, and golfers will have the option to play from five sets of tees and combo tees.

TifEagle Bermuda grass has been selected for the greens’ surfaces, while the balance of the course will be sand-capped and grassed wall-to-wall with Stadium Zoysia. For more information, visit www.EscalanteGolf.com.
