Colonial Country Club – site of the 2023 Charles Schwab Challenge on the PGA Tour – opened in 1936 with a course designed by John Bredemus and Perry Maxwell. The layout in Fort Worth, Texas, was the home course to Ben Hogan for a time and has hosted a PGA Tour event since 1946.
Colonial ties for No. 85 on Golfweek’s Best list of all classic courses built in the U.S. before 1960. It also is No. 4 in Texas on Golfweek’s Best list of private courses in each state.
The layout will play to 7,209 yards with a par of 70 for this year’s event.
The course is scheduled to undergo a $20 million renovation by the design team of Gil Hanse and Jim Wagner as soon as this year’s event ends. Completion of the work is planned before the PGA Tour event returns in 2024.
Thanks to yardage books provided by StrackaLine – the maker of detailed yardage books for thousands of courses around the world – we can see exactly the challenges the pros face this week at Colonial.
