The Top 10 Golf Courses In McKinney, Texas

Golf Courses in McKinney

There are a great many activities and sports which residents of McKinney can enjoy, but sometimes nothing quite compares to spending a day on the golf course. As such, whilst golfing can be a professional sport, some like to play it casually for stress relief, and others just play it as a team-building exercise for business teams or even just family bonding.

If you’ve been following our blogs, you’ll know that we’ve explored McKinney before, including breakfast spots and coffee shops, but today we’re going to be looking at the best places to visit when looking to golf.

1. Heritage Ranch & Golf Country Club

We’re starting this list with a place that has quite a warm and welcoming ‘vibe’ about it. Heritage Ranch has more than 1,100 homes in which active adults live, making this is a good place to familiarize yourself with if you are moving to McKinney, but perhaps is not as ideal for those here on vacation.

The golf course itself is 18 holes and surrounded by scenic ponds. Aside from the scenery and social life, you can also make a day out of Heritage Ranch including dining, time in the clubhouse, and even hosting celebratory events such as weddings and anniversaries.

Prices to access the public golf course will vary in price depending on the time of day. For example, 1-4 players can enter for as little as $34 during off-peak hours, but during scenic times (such as sunrise) or peak hours, it can cost as much as $63 for 1-2 players.

2. Stonebridge Ranch Country Club

Established in 1988, Stonebridge Ranch has received praise from customers for its’ 27-Hole Arthur Hills Signature Golf Course and spectator bar. 30 years of positive reviews would suggest that they are least doing something right.

However, if you’d prefer a smaller or generally cheaper game, the country club also offers an 18-hole golf course which will make for a shorter and perhaps more enjoyable session for some. Furthermore, if you wish to wake up bright and early for a sunrise golf session, Stonebridge Ranch offers the luxury of an overnight stay.

Golf Clubs and Golf Balls

The website does not make ticket pricing clear, however, most players will be accessing the golf course as part of their membership with Stonebridge Ranch – an option that is perhaps more viable for locals as opposed to travelers.

3. Hank Haney Golf Ranch

Our next contender on this list goes to a place that offers flexibility over sessions and player age category, making it a feasible choice for both locals and travelers alike, in contrast to our previous pick.

The 18-hole Jeff Brauer Golf Course, Hank Haney offers junior programs (including Physical Education and Summer Camps), adult programs (including beginners), and private lessons. This is a place where you can engage with the sport properly, and perhaps learn a thing or two that’ll improve your skills for the next time you go golfing. Whilst this may not be a more casual experience, we still have to recommend it simply because of the man who runs it: Hank Haney, the same golf instructor that taught Tiger Woods how to hold a club the right way.

Of course, even just one session from a place run by the best-of-the-best cannot come cheap. With the instructors having been taught by the man himself, sessions with them will set you back anyway from $75 to $125, so this isn’t the cheapest option on this list but is certainly the most professional.

4. Eldorado Country Club

Eldorado Country Club is a highlight of, not just Texas’ many golf courses, but of McKinney in general. Here you can find much more than just golf, including tennis, fitness classes, a swimming pool, and fine dining – There’s more than enough here to occupy parties with even the fussiest individuals.

With regards to the golf course itself, it’s wide and vast but is also surrounded by trees, meaning you have a private session whilst also not having strict boundaries reducing your range.

Elorado Gold Course

But perhaps you’re new to McKinney are looking to build a social life – Well, with the social amenities at Eldorado Country Club, you can golf during the day and then retire to the clubhouse for sunset. Even if you’re just a tourist here, this is a classy and well-kept place in which you can pass people who have come from all different walks of life.

5. Alex Clark Memorial Disc Golf Course

Now, this next course is a little different from all the rest. As opposed to playing regular golf, on this course you’ll be playing with throwing disks. The aim of the game is the same as regular golf, just with disks and baskets instead of golf balls and holes.

Even if you’re just looking for all-out golf, we implore you not to immediately dismiss this spot. Irregular though it may be, keep in mind that at the end of the day, what you’ll have with this place is a unique memory that will be quite unlike anything else; Something which should appeal to locals and tourists alike.

The course is praised for its’ lack of hazards. The safety measures in place mean two parties cannot collide and it is highly unlikely any individual will be injured by a thrown disk. These measures are further reinforced by the naturally tall trees and shady woodland to keep the hot beading sun rays off of your head.

6. TPC Craig Ranch

The most popular spot on this list, TPC Craig Ranch has been open for more than 50 years and has raised nearly $170 million in the way of charity – This is a place that promotes good causes and brings people together, so if you’re looking for a lively atmosphere as opposed to a reserved one, this is your best bet.

The Weiskopf golf course incorporates gently rolling hills and mostly flat terrain to make for both an easygoing and simple experience whilst also providing a little bit of challenge. You can sharpen your skills at the smaller ‘Practicing Range’ first as well if you desire to do so.

TPC Craig Ranch also offers private lessons, ranging in price from $85 to $150 per adult, which is another relatively expensive spot, though it would certainly go above and beyond to deliver the quality paid for.

7. Oak Hollow Golf Course

Our next contender is, according to Google, the highest-rated golf course in all of McKinney. It’s also the most expansive when it comes to features and pricing.

If you’re just looking for a quick golf game, you can book a tee time for yourself and your potential party, though if you’re looking to make an evening of your time here, Oak Hollow also offers you the option of booking an event with them, making the golf course entirely yours for the night. There’s even a Junior Summer Camp if you’re looking to find a way to keep the kids occupied during school breaks.

Pricing here is also relatively affordable, with regular rates clocking in between $26 to $37 dependent on the number of holes booked (9 or 18) and the number of players (1 to 4). However, with frequent savings of up to 17% for certain hours, you can golf here for roughly $5 off during unpopular times.

8. Westridge Golf Course

When it comes to simplicity, Westridge Golf Course foregoes bells and whistles for quality facilities. Featuring 18 holes, a practice facility, a sports bar, and a grill, this golf course provides you with basic social amenities as well as a reliable green.

Golf

There’s also a golf academy here which is run by the earlier mentioned Hank Haney, meaning this is another place where you can go professional.

Pricing is difficult to put a fixed number on, as it fluctuates greatly depending on the course’s popularity since bookings can be made as late as up to 24 hours prior. However, for 2 players to play 18 holes during off-peak times, we’ve found the price to average out at $54, but again, the exact value could easily change depending on your circumstances.

9. Ridgeview Ranch Golf Course

Alright, so we’re sort of cheating the list a little bit with this one – Ridgeview Ranch is actually located on the cusp of Plano, but you could easily get there within five minutes of most other courses on this list.

We just had to include this spot because of the amenities provided. The clubhouse is easily one of the fanciest in the area, and there’s also a professional shop here for those who are playing competitively or looking to purchase mementos. Customers have also praised the staff for their friendly manner and welcoming attitude.

10. Twin Creeks Golf Club

Again, we’re cheating the list a little bit, as this golf course is technically located in Allen, but it’s close enough to McKinney to still qualify!

Twin Creeks is a perfect blend of both casual and professional. Although the course itself is designed competitively, the elegant scenery and special events hosted here still make it feel welcoming to all; even the most unfamiliar of golf players.

We recommend this spot for its’ Annual Pass, which allows players to golf for free at any time either 5 or 7 days a week, depending on which pass is paid for. There’s also a practicing range, meaning that you can find your footing before deciding whether you want to make an annual commitment or not.

What swayed it for us was the dining amenities: An Elkhorn Grill and a CRUSHBURGER. After unwinding with a game of golf, you can retire for either some exotic grilled cuisine or simple fast food – Whichever you are craving!

Overall…

If you’re coming to McKinney either temporarily or permanently, golfing is just one of the many activities that you can dedicate your time to. We made sure to pick a fair balance of professional, casual, affordable, and expensive courses for this list in order to accommodate all who have an interest in undertaking this sport when out here.
