TROPHY CLUB, TX

Laurie E. Jasinski

TROPHY CLUB, TEXAS. The town of Trophy Club is located off State Highway 114 about fifteen miles southwest of Denton in southern Denton County. In 1973 Houston developers contacted the city council of Westlake and proposed the construction of an upscale planned community centered on a country club. Texas golf legend Ben Hogan designed an eighteen-hole golf course, and the town's name originated in the proposal that the country club would exhibit Hogan's golf trophy collection. The golf course is reportedly the only one Hogan ever designed. Development of the land continued throughout the next decade, and on January 19, 1985, the community incorporated. In 1990 there were 3,922 residents. Trophy Club covers an area of 2,385 acres, and citizens enjoy a variety of recreational amenities that include the country club, two golf courses, and nature trails. The town has a mayor/council form of government and provides police, fire, and emergency services. Its proximity to the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex has facilitated substantial population growth. In 2000 Trophy Club had 6,350 residents.
