Description

Editor's Note: Course closed for business in 2007.

Willowisp sports a shady past. Originally known as the Glenhaven Country Club, it was developed by a group of Dallas hustlers who sold $1,000 lifetime memberships out of a temporary office. The course went bankrupt after the developers bailed, delaying the fruition of Joe Finger's vision.

After extensive renovation, the course opened in 1964 after almost 1,000 trees were brought in to complement the 40,000 plants that were added to spice up the design. The course is flat, and water comes into play on about half of the holes. The best stretch occurs on Nos. 6-11, which features two 450-yard par 4s, two par 5s that are impossible to reach in two, and a monster 230-yard par 3.
