Year in and year out, Crown Colony is one of the highest-rated courses in the state of Texas. The club hosted the Southern Amateur in 1987 and 2001, and the Texas State Amateur in 1982 and 1998.
Designed in 1979 by Robert von Hagge & Bruce Devlin, the course is cut out of the East Texas piney woods. Narrow fairways and plenty of water define the challenge, and the course has a strong set of par 3's, including the all-carry 4th and 17th. The 17th, sandwiched between the reachable par-5 16th and the long 18th, each with a very narrow green, makes for an exciting finish. The course has five par 3's and five par 5's to make up its par of 72.
