    From tournaments to corporate retreats, the scenic views at Old American are all winners. 

     
    FROM THE Winter 2017 ISSUE
     

The golden age of American golf course architecture is in play at Old American Golf Club, along the shore of Lake Lewisville in The Colony. Designed by 13-time PGA Tour winner Tripp Davis and British Open champion Justin Leonard, Old American offers natural contours, native grasses and greens inspired by some of the greatest courses of the golden age of golf, an era from 1911 to 1937. Just 20 minutes north of the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, Old American is available for tournaments, corporate retreats and special events. An on-site restaurant, Carriage House, offers private dining inside and on the patio.  

Texas has many uniting themes throughout the state, and one is a pride in the state’s history and natural beauty. The state’s wide variety of museums and botanical gardens is a testament to that pride, and these locations—which range in focus from the history of Dr Pepper to the oil industry to state wildlife and more—can make for the perfect (not to mention memorable) venue for a meeting or event. Many museums have several venue spaces to offer, making it easy to customize an event based on size, technology and set-up needs, and overall vibe.

 

The Highland Lakes Region extends from Lady Bird Lake in downtown Austin to 100 miles outside the city to Lake Buchanan. The chain of seven lakes formed from a series of dams along the Colorado River offer opportunities to boat, kayak, fish and swim while taking in the Texas Hill Country.
