TPC Craig Ranch
It’s one of the toughest courses in Texas, and rated one of the top private courses in the country by Golf Digest — and it’s practically within putting range of your back door. It is only one of two courses in DFW certified as an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary System for its efforts in preserving and protecting indigenous wildlife habitats on its 233 acres. Surrounded by a beautiful tree line, rolling hills and picturesque Rowlett Creek, this 7,438-yard, par-72 Tom Weiskopf-designed course, has five sets of tees on each hole to enable golfers of all abilities to enjoy the subtle nuances and distinct design elements that have brought Weiskopf recognition as one of the country’s most respected designers.
Once approved for membership at the TPC Golf Course, buyers at 17 Green and The Estates will receive a waiver of the initiation fee, which is a $35,000 value. Buyers will also receive a two-year free membership at the Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa for one person or two people for one year.
In addition to hosting tournaments on the PGA circuit, TPC Craig Ranch sponsors charity events for Birdies for the Brave, supporting soldiers and their families; Healing Hearts Invitational, supporting the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County which helps young victims of abuse and neglect, and the Emmitt Smith Celebrity Invitational Golf Tournament, supporting various local charities from year to year.
The TPC Craig Ranch includes an extensive practice facility with a 350-yard practice area with target greens, a 14,000 square-foot putting green, a 100-yard short game area with bunkers, and a dedicated chipping green; the world-class golf instructional academy is led by top PGA professionals. The clubhouse has a grand veranda with panoramic views of the golf course and offers an ideal vantage point for socializing and networking. Members and guests can enjoy the lounge, grab a casual bite to eat in the Legends’ Grille or Portabello Room, or experience fine dining in the Chanterelle Room. Several banquet spaces and a boardroom with private courtyard can accommodate private functions as well.
Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa
Dedicated to supporting you and your family in staying fit and healthy. Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa is built around the best ways to help you find the exercise and training routine that makes a difference. That’s why you’ll find the only long-course Olympic-size swimming in a North Texas health club, an indoor and outdoor running track with shock-absorbing surfaces, the most up-to-date exercise equipment, full programs for children, and a demonstration kitchen — so the nutrition experts can teach you (and your kids) how to extend your healthy lifestyle beyond the gym.
Many clubs have personal trainers, but Craig Ranch Fitness & Spa adds a staff of sports professionals covering tennis, martial arts, cycling, running, swimming and basketball to its staff, so you have access to top-level training no matter your interest.
Every athlete, no matter the level, needs to relax and rejuvenate. You can do that at the facility’s full-service spa, with treatments ranging from restorative to therapeutic. The spa offers a variety of options for massage (include the Texas Two-Step for two!), plus body treatments and facials, mani/pedi and salon services, microdermabrasion and other cosmetic treatments. Complimentary childcare is provided at the RC Corral. And, again, it’s all in your neighborhood.
