TPC Four Seasons Resort is down to its final year as being host of the AT&T Byron Nelson.

Trinity Forest Golf Club, the recently constructed links-style course designed by Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, will now host the PGA Tour event in 2018. TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas was originally set to be the host the tournament through 2018, but the two came to a mutual agreement to end the contract one year early.


An official announcement was made Wednesday at Trinity Forest where Jordan Spieth made an appearance. His swing coach, Cameron McCormick, is the new PGA Director of Instruction at the facility.

Spieth also happens to own the course record — a 5-under-par 66. The private course with only 100 members opened for play two weeks ago.

Coore and Crenshaw designed a classic links-style layout, unique to the area. The grounds resemble a seaside links tucked in the forest with dunes, sandy waste areas and native grasses swaying on rolling hills. The par-71 course stretches to 7,300 yards from the tips.

The Byron Nelson will be played on TPC Four Seasons for the final time on May 18-21, 2017.
