The architectural firm co-founded by two-time Masters champion Ben Crenshaw _ Coore & Crenshaw, Inc. _ has been selected to design the new Trinity Forest Golf Course, an 18-hole championship facility that will be created on a landfill owned by the City of Dallas. Scheduled to open in 2016, is facility will include an 18-hole course, a short course and a practice facility that will serve as a practice academy for the SMU golf teams and a teaching center for the First Tee of Dallas. There has been speculation that the course, located 10 minutes south of downtown Dallas, could emerge as a future venue for the HP Byron Nelson Championship after the event’s new title sponsor, AT&T, comes on board in 2015. The tournament is under contract through 2018 to play at its current venue, the Four Seasons Resort in Irving.
