Arlington's Texas Rangers are gearing up for the World Series this week, but the excitement isn't limited to just baseball. Golf Digest has recently ranked the Dallas/Fort Worth area, home to Arlington's Texas Rangers Golf Club, as one of its "Best Baseball Cities for Golf."
In a partnership between the City of Arlington and the Texas Rangers, the world's sole Major League Baseball-branded golf course opened its doors in 2019. Located at 701 Brown Boulevard, this 18-hole public golf course stands as the closest option for golf enthusiasts to Arlington's Entertainment District. This proximity allows golfers to combine their passion for the sport with visits to Texas Rangers, Cowboys, Renegades home games, Texas Live! concerts, and a plethora of other events at venues such as AT&T Stadium, Choctaw Stadium, Globe Life Field, UTA, or Downtown Arlington.
Designed by local Arlington talent John Colligan and Trey Kemp, the Texas Rangers Golf Club takes advantage of the property's 55 feet of elevation changes, offering golfers challenging terrain and expansive undulating greens. The clubhouse boasts the Home Plate Restaurant and Patio, a pro shop, locker rooms, and various rental and event spaces. Open daily to the public, the full-service restaurant and bar feature a made-from-scratch menu and a selection of 10 beers on tap, all complemented by breathtaking golf course views. Sports enthusiasts will find ample opportunities for game viewing with wall-to-wall TVs, including 31 TVs within the restaurant and bar area alone.
Notably, the Texas Rangers Golf Club is not just limited to golf aficionados. Hosting the Korn Ferry Tour's Veritex Bank Championship, it earned the title of "Best New Course" by the Dallas Morning News in 2020. In 2019, it was also recognized as the second-best renovation worldwide by Golf Inc.
