Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course
Named by Golf Digest among the best daily fee golf courses in the state of Texas, The Golf Club at Twin Creeks' magnificent Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course was designed to blend seamlessly with its pristine natural surroundings amidst the emerald hills of Allen, Texas. Mature stands of trees frame gently rolling fairways and large undulating greens, with two creeks traversing the course and five beautiful lakes creating both strategic diversity and a breathtaking backdrop for golf.
While challenging for scratch golfers, multiple tees on each hole enable golfers of all ages and skill levels to experience the mastery, craftsmanship and creativity of The King, one of the most beloved and iconic player/designers in the world.
The Golf Club at Twin Creeks opened in 1995 and it was designed and built by Arnold Palmer and is one of his signature courses. Arnold describes Twin Creek as follows: "The Golf Club at Twin Creeks could be one of the best courses in the State of Texas and the most peaceful 18 hole course I have ever designed. The golf course is of a traditional nature and is very much in harmony with the natural landscape." Like most Arnold Palmer courses, Twin Creeks is very playable and fair to all levels of play and a pretty traditional and straightforward layout with no tricks or surprises - in most cases you can see the pin and what you're up against and plan your strategy accordingly.
Palmer designed Twin Creeks around two creeks and several ponds. The course plays through a beautiful golf community with several huge beautiful homes set well back off the fairways, they shouldn't come into play unless you really spray the ball. You'll also encounter water on 10 holes including six ponds waiting for your golf ball, a blind shot, an uphill as well as downhill hole, dog legs, forced carries, some risk reward opportunities, and several strategically placed bunkers.
Some examples include:
#5 is a short 352 yard par 4 but it's uphill into the prevailing wind and the fairway zig zags through a mine field of 8 bunkers - accuracy all the way to the tee is critical on this hole.
#7 is a very fun and somewhat challenging 548 yard par 5 - from the tee box you'll have a blind slightly uphill shot to the fairway and a tough shot downhill to a small challenging green with lots of slope and undulation and no room for error thanks to a pond on the front and left side - the good news is with some good downhill roll, two good shots give you an opportunity for an eagle or at least a birdie.
#14 is a short 346 yard par 4 offering a great risk reward opportunity to try and fly the trees and stuff it on the green
holes 16, 17, and 18 are three excellent and challenging finishing holes with a combination of water, strategically placed bunkers, tight landing zones, well guarded greens, and a couple opportunities to test your go-for-it attitude.

- Harvard, David & Connie Pak were excellent during our 8 day stay. Connie kept the Breakfast Room stocked and clean. They were all friendly and helpful. We will stay there again when we go back to see our Great Grand Children and family. When we checked out the man at the desk helped us out to the car with our luggage and he would not accept a tip.
