After designing The Tribute Golf Links in 2000, Tripp Davis was enlisted again by Matthews Southwest to design the Old American Golf Club – this time with help from PGA Tour star Justin Leonard. Adjacent to The Tribute course, Davis wanted to differentiate Old American with a design reminiscent of early American courses. With strategic input from Leonard, Davis set out with a Golden Age mentality – where wind, weather and sand served as par’s defense. From naturally formed bunkers and native grasses, to a back nine routed along the shores of Lake Lewisville, the stunning setting and constant cross winds off the lake create an unforgettable round.
“Together we set out to create a golf experience that would not only give players a visual sense of the courses from the ‘Golden Age of Architecture’, but the ability to experience the strategic interest and variety that has often been lost in the modern era,” said Davis.
Although still a fairly “new” course having opened in 2010, Old American Golf Club is already gaining notoriety among the media and players of all levels. The club hosted a U.S. Open qualifier in the spring of 2012, and has received numerous accolades from golf publications as well as the Dallas Morning News.

The charming Carriage House is home to the highly acclaimed Old American grill, which features fresh and innovative menu selections. Residents of The Tribute enjoy monthly themed dinner nights, as well as the relaxing back patio with stunning lake views.
