Trinity Forest’s No. 15 and No. 5 green

Trinity Forest Golf Club, site of the 2018 AT&T Byron Nelson Classic, has been awarded Golf Digest’s Green Start Environmental Award for outstanding environmental practices.

The golf course, located just 8 miles south of downtown Dallas, was built on a former landfill. Designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw — with a variety of stakeholders weighing in, including the city of Dallas, construction firm Landscapes Unlimited, owner’s rep firm Oncore, the Audubon Society of Dallas and more — the construction of the golf course was a complicated project.

Kasey Kauff, formerly the superintendent at Country Club of Orlando, was named Trinity Forest GC’s director of golf course and grounds, and proposed establishing blackland prairies with native grasses on the site, with minimal irrigation.
