"Throwback" Course Under Construction Near Metroplex

Texas-based architect Jeffrey Brauer has broken ground on a golf course that will be part of The Villages at Lone Oak, built on the shores of Lake Tawakoni east of the Metroplex. The golf course will be a "throwback" course:

At The Villages at Lone Oak, a new 1,000-lot lakeside planned community, Brauer will turn the clock back to the Golden Age of Golf Design when C.B. Macdonald, the “Father of American Golf Course Design,” roamed the United States creating tabletop greens, deep bunkers with steep-banked walls – and remarkable golf courses. The Lone Oak course will be an interesting historical complement to Rocky Ford, a famous spot on the property where wagon trains forded the Sabine River on their way West.

Nine holes are expected to be open by Spring, 2006, with construction then beginning on the second nine.
