Old American Golf Club, NYLO Plano at Legacy offer stay-and-play for fall golf season

THE COLONY, Texas -- Old American Golf Club – a pure golf experience from award-winning architect Tripp Davis and PGA TOUR player Justin Leonard – and NYLO Plano at Legacy are offering a stay-and-play package starting at $213 per player for the fall golf season.

This original pairing of a classically designed course and ultra-modern boutique hotel includes one round per player at Old American and one night at the Plano at Legacy (double occupancy). A complimentary yardage book, water, snacks and a pro-shop gift complete the offering, which can be booked for multiple nights.

Old American, opened in 2010, is a strategic gem wrought along the shore of Lake Lewisville just 20 minutes north of DFW International Airport. Inspired by the ‘Golden Age’ of golf course architecture – a period of excellence between 1911 and 1937 -- it garnered “best new” recognition from GOLF Magazine, Golfweek and LINKS. Naturally formed bunkers, organic green complexes and a variety of native grasses combine to create holes leveraging varying wind conditions.

“Dallas comes into its own as a golf destination in the fall, with temperatures in the 70s and 80s,” says Old American General Manager Mike McCabe. “The stay-and-play package with NYLO Plano at Legacy is perfect for traveling golfers who collect unparalleled playing and accommodation experiences.”

The original NYLO, Plano at Legacy blends urban, industrial design with classic Texas comfort to provide an unmatched and highly social hotel experience. Business and leisure travelers alike will enjoy chic loft-style accommodations, signature LOCL Bar & Restaurant, heated outdoor pool, state of the art gym, and 1,800 square feet of meeting and event space.

“Old American offers discerning players championship golf on a layout unlike any other in the state, and ideally complements our hotel’s combination of modern luxury and convenience,” says Mike Mueller, CEO of NYLO Hotels.

About Old American Golf Club
Inspired by the ‘Golden Age’ of golf course architecture between 1911 and 1937, Old American’s natural contours, hazard styles, native grasses and green shapes were influenced by such masterpieces as Shinnecock Hills, National Golf Links, Prairie Dunes and Crystal Downs.

Acclaimed architect Tripp Davis, an accomplished amateur player and former All-American at the University of Oklahoma and PGA TOUR/Ryder Cup star Justin Leonard, who played golf at the University of Texas, toured and played a handful of America’s classic Golden Age golf courses prior to starting the design process for Old American.

The result is a golf course that emphasizes strategy and shot-making and flows with a natural rhythm from first tee to 18th green. Old American features six sets of tees, ranging from the 5215-yard forward markers to the 7174-yard “Leonard” tournament tees. Davis and Leonard conceived the routing and layout with both medal and match play in mind, as golfers are required to hold “steady to par” through a number of holes, but enticed to gamble on birdie or better during select stretches of the course.
