Introduction to Trophy Club, Texas
Trophy Club History
In late 20th century, a group of Houston developers planned to develop a community around a country club. After contacting the Westlake City Council with their proposal, the Texan golf legend Ben Hogan built an 18-hole golf course. It was subsequently proposed that the country club would exhibit Hogan's golf trophy collection and the area would be called Trophy Club. More recreational facilities were added over the years as the community developed including two more golf courses and nature trails. Trophy Club was incorporated in 1985.
