Coyote Ridge Golf Club, an 18-hole semi-private club in Carrollton, Texas, just north of Dallas, recently joined the Troon family. Troon Golf, the resort and daily-fee club operations division of Troon, will manage the golf, agronomy, restaurant, and club operations.
Originally opened for play in 1999, Coyote Ridge Golf Club is a George Williams design. In 2005, the Sam Moon Group purchased and renovated the golf course. Course enhancements included bunker renovations, the addition of 1,000-plus trees, and new tee boxes, which helped to lengthen the golf course.
The front nine is an open, links-style routing with water coming into play on six of the nine holes, while the back nine is a tighter experience, twisting and turning within the confines of a former Trinity River gravel quarry, now lavishly landscaped with natural grasses, blooming seasonal flowers, and hundreds of oak, pecan, and elm trees. The 7,003-yard, par-72 golf course is considered one of the finest and most challenging in the Dallas Metroplex.
“Coyote Ridge Golf Club is a stunning property,” said Troon Golf division President Mitch Harrell. “The golf course and clubhouse are both outstanding. Our team is looking forward to working with the Sam Moon Group and the onsite team to further elevate operations, food and beverage, agronomy, and the overall guest experience.”
Coyote Ridge Golf Club’s 26,000-square-foot clubhouse features a well-appointed golf shop; men’s and women’s locker rooms; two private dining and meeting rooms; The Grand Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 300 guests; and The Grill 19 restaurant and bar. The Grill 19 is open for lunch and dinner, providing guests with beautiful golf course views.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Troon to continue fulfilling our vision for Coyote Ridge,” said Sam Moon, owner. “Troon is the proven leader in club management and the ideal organization to elevate our premier experience to even greater heights.”
