Golf Clubs at The Tribute (also known as The Tribute at The Colony) comprises two well-rated and pleasantly testing golf courses - the Old American Golf Club and the Tribute Golf Links. Since 2013 the Old American has been a regular host to the LPGA Tour.

The Tribute Golf Links draws its inspiration from the great links courses of Scotland. Many holes are unashamedly modelled on those found in the "Home of Golf". The par-4 opener, and closing par-4 17th and 18th are direct copies of the corresponding holes found at the Old Course, St Andrews. And that includes a Swilken Bridge at 18 and a railway shed to drive over at 17.

Laid out in two nine-hole loops, this open links-style layout also includes some of the best known holes from Carnoustie, Machrihanish, Moray, Muirfield, Nairn, Prestwick, Royal Dornoch, Royal Troon, Turnberry and Western Gailes.

If you know your Scottish courses (and even if you don't), this layout has much to enjoy, with many attractive features woven into its "Scottish" fabric. Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Did you know?

Both of the Golf Clubs at The Tribute, the Old American GC and the Tribute Golf Links, were designed by golf course architect Tripp Davis. Leading PGA Tour professional and 1997 Open Championship winner Justin Leonard was also involved in the design of the Old American.

The Tribute is a subdivision of the city of The Colony in Denton County, Texas. The city takes its name from the original Peters Colony, which comprised land grants in the mid-1800s to American and English settlers, led by a certain William Smalling Peters.
