Host Course: Named by Golf Digest among the best daily fee golf courses in the state of Texas, The Golf Club at Twin Creeks’ magnificent Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course was designed to blend seamlessly with its pristine natural surroundings amidst the emerald hills of Allen, Texas. Mature stands of trees frame gently rolling fairways and large undulating greens, with two creeks traversing the course and five beautiful lakes creating both strategic diversity and a breathtaking backdrop for golf.  While challenging for scratch golfers, multiple tees on each hole enable golfers of all ages and skill levels to experience the mastery, craftsmanship and creativity of The King, one of the most beloved and iconic player/designers in the world.

Next Up: The North Regional Series next event will be at Wildhorse Golf Club @ Robson Ranch for the North Senior Amateur April 8-9M.
