Visit Mansfield Golf Club
Mansfield National, a $10 million project, is owned by a public/private venture between the City of Mansfield and ARCIS, which manages the facility. Ideal location for Dallas or Fort Worth golf. Designed by John Colligan of Colligan Golf in Arlington, the rolling, 225-acre site features 419 Bermuda Fairways and Tiff dwarf Bermuda greens. From the back tees Mansfield National plays 6,850 yards and from the forward tees it plays 5,263 yards.
Water comes into play on four holes, and 26 greenside and fairway bunkers and numerous grass and waste bunkers add to the challenge. Oaks, evergreens, cedar, elm, hackberry and mesquite trees, among others, are abundant throughout the course. Low Branch Creek meanders across the property and a 4-acre lake affects holes 11 and 16. The greens throughout the course are large and undulating.
The course’s signature hole is No. 5, probably the toughest par 3 in the metroplex. At 233 yards, the green promises to be a difficult target for players, even with prevailing south winds.
Architect John Colligan, whose credits include the highly regarded Squaw Valley in Glen Rose and Ridgeview Ranch in Plano, said Mansfield National was designed to be challenging and fun.
