Old American Golf Club Announces Enhancements to the Carriage House

(THE COLONY, Texas) – Old American Golf Club – a pure golf experience designed by Tripp Davis and PGA TOUR player Justin Leonard – has unveiled a new restaurant in its territorial-themed Carriage House, along with an expanded golf shop featuring a wide selection of top name brands.The newly opened Old American Grill features fresh, local produce and meats sourced by the chef. The menu includes revolving items based on member and guest feedback and boasts innovative creations fusing Southwestern, Texas and Americana cuisine.Inspired by the clubhouses from the ‘Golden Age’ of golf course architecture (1911-1937), The Carriage House blends territorial design and modern amenities to create a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere. The Old American Grill houses indoor and planned outdoor seating options including an atmospheric patio overlooking the golf course.
 “We are eager to welcome members, guests and the community to our new restaurant,” says Mike McCabe, general manager. “Old American Grill is an extension of our vision for the golf course and community, and will carry the same standard of excellence and ingenuity.”

The Carriage House now sports an expanded retail golf shop including the latest golf apparel and equipment, and gear adorned with Old American’s signature feather logo.

“A true hangout for our golfers, with outstanding food, drink and merchandise,” adds McCabe, when asked to describe the new-look Carriage House.

Steadfastly committed to its Golden Age theme, developer/owner Matthews Southwest is reconstructing and refinishing a vintage barn from a Michigan farm to serve as the new golf cart storage facility. It is one of a handful of relics found at Old American, including the 19th century railroad bridge transplanted from the Red River connecting holes two and three.
