Tenison Park

Tenison Park is a classic, Dallas municipal golf course about 10 minutes from downtown with two 18 hole layouts.

The Highlands' front nine is somewhat pedestrian while the back nine has a host of impressive holes with varying degrees of elevation change along the tree lined fairways. The layout has a total of five water hazards and a moderate amount of sand traps which are generally greenside. From the tips it's 7,078 yards, 73.7/130, course/slope ratings with four shorter tees, designed by Jack Burke and Syd Cooper in 1925 with a redesign by D.A. Weibring and Steve Wolfard.

The Glen is a more playable parkland layout along tree lined fairways with White Rock Creek winding its way through the golf course. It was redesigned by Ralph Plummer and from the tips plays to 6,607 yards, 71.8/119, course/slope ratings with four shorter tees.

Tenison Park was originally built by Dallas banker E.O. Tenison after World War I as a memorial to his son who died in the war, and was known as a hustlers hangout with Titanic Thompson and Lee Trevino working the course in the early years.
