The Trinity Forest Golf Clubhouse was conceived as a building to be remarkably unique. Named for the sprawling Dallas wetland forest in which it lies, this new links golf course, designed by Coore & Crenshaw, required a bold and identifiable structure as it’s centerpiece. The firm was commissioned to design the Clubhouse and a teaching facility, which is to be shared with the SMU Golf team and named after Golf legend Payne Stewart. With the game of Golf and the viewing of Golf as the main considerations, the building is efficient and utilitarian but, at the same time, exciting and dynamic. Designed from the inside-out, the Clubhouse is a blend of modern aesthetic with classic understanding for a composition that engages both the golf course and the context of this unique Texas landscape. As a contemporary building rooted in classical architecture, the clubhouse will be a long-lasting part of Dallas’s rich architectural heritage.
