THE COLONY, Texas -- The Tribute - a Matthews Southwest, Wynne/Jackson masterplanned community on the shores of Lake Lewisville - announces the availability of premium lake-view, golf course-fronting lots in the Balmerino Village on its "New Course," a Tripp Davis/Justin Leonard collaboration scheduled to open in 2009.
Two of the seven Balmerino lots along the New Course are being brought to market immediately and the remaining five will be released in the coming months. The parcels are adjacent to the No. 5 green and No. 6 tee box, premium placements that allow for unobstructed views of Lake Lewisville. A total of 28 lots will be offered in Balmerino, ranging from $135,000 to $275,000 and featuring 90' x 160' footprints.
A gated neighborhood located at the center of The Tribute's masterplanned community, Balmerino is one of five distinct villages that feature a wide range of single family homes, golf villas, townhomes, and European condominiums. Its location allows for easy access to The Tribute's amenity centers, themed parks, canals, trail system and proposed lake club and marina.
"The premium Balmerino Village lots showcase the very best attributes and amenities of The Tribute and exemplify the resort lifestyle the community offers residents, visitors and home-buyers of all ages," says Michael C. Jackson, Principal, Wynne/Jackson.
Custom builders available for Balmerino Village include Plano-based Shaddock & McNaught and Dallas-based Flagstone, two category leaders offering homes built in English Cottage, French Country, English Palladian, French Provincial and English Tudor architectural styles, emphasizing the Old World-themed atmosphere of the community.
A joint venture between Matthews Southwest and Wynne/Jackson, The Tribute is a master-planned golf resort style community offering first-class amenity centers, pools, parks, playgrounds, on-site schools, hike-and-bike trails, landscaped canals, and hundreds of acres of accessible open space reminiscent of the Scottish Highlands. A total of 1,150 single family lots, 160 golf villas, 183 townhomes, and 700 European condominium units will overlook the Tribute's two world-class golf courses and Lake Lewisville, just 23 miles from Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport.

About The New Course
The New Course is PGA Tour/Ryder Cup star Justin Leonard's first Texas-based design project and the culmination of a long-time relationship with Davis, who he teamed with to design Shorefox Golf Club in Granby, Colorado. Scheduled to open in the summer of 2009, the New Course will captivate students of classic architecture, featuring holes inspired by masters Donald Ross, C.B. MacDonald, Alister MacKenzie, A.W. Tillinghast and other legends.
It will join the Scottish-inspired "Old Course," also designed by Davis' Oklahoma-based firm and featuring holes from famous British Open venues, to create one of the truly unique and inspiring 36-hole golf experiences in the U.S. Collectively via the New and Old Courses, golfers will be able to sample actual holes and design treatments from far-away and extremely-private golf clubs they may otherwise not be able to access in their lifetimes.
Davis and Leonard's layout conjures the natural contours, hazard styles and green shapes of masterpieces such as Shinnecock Hills, National Golf Links, Prairie Dunes and Crystal Downs. Large, flowing bunkers, native grasses and subtle elevation changes will challenge players and mark the New Course as a wholly unique test of golf. Eight holes front Lake Lewisville, which provides a stirring backdrop to the 36-hole facility located just 23 miles from Dallas-Ft. Worth International Airport.
